From an employee of the US Army Corp of Engeneers. There is no idea of when the lake will be reopened for boat use (not even he knows why). The only thing he knows is that the pencil pushers in portland have decided that the Dam can not support the lake at full level. The funny thing is that the lake actually holds less water than it used to do to the incoming gravel and rocks from lawhead and sardine creeks. many of us have boats that can still be launched in these water conditions. During certain times of the day that lake has always been a pain to load and unload bigger boats. Why not let use use the lake?
