yes, but the corps of engineers had a sign on the road to the boat ramp for a while saying no fishing, i guess one of the dams was weak and being worked on, and they didn't want anyone on the lake. maybe someone hear has some more specifics. Brian

I see now, what you were asking. I have never fished that lake. But, I would welcome a chance to do so.

on the osmb web site under closures, it says the big cliff ramp is closed until further notice due to gate repairs on the dam. however, they opened it to walk in recreation. guess i answered my own question.

You can still fish from the jut out rocky bank though if you walk. No boats though. I have seen many a big trout pulled out of there using a floated worm off of the bottom. Lots of snags so bring extra terminal tackle though.

yehh, thats what i was talking about in my previous post, walk in fishing only. Im itching to get my boat back out, and want more than stocker sized trout, so i was hoping the res was open to boats again, but i guess its closed until further notice. ive caught lots of huge trout in there close to the cutoof on crawlers and shrimp.

For what it's worth, dec 10 I saw a boat and a float tube on the lake. Don't know if they were legal???

With the ramp closed, a lot of people that are using smaller boats are parking by the rocky point and carrying thier craft to the water. It's not closed to boats, just the ramp. If you can carry it and launch it, you can use it from what I've seen.
