If you need to pick up any bait or tackle...use the ramp on North Shore Drive. There are 2 bait stores within casting distance of the ramp. The water level is about 3' deep till after the jog in the docks. If you need deeper water, use the ramp that is at the east end of the lake between the dam and the sailboat marina. As far as the fishing...haven't been out there in a while. Good Luck!
