    I was at Salt Fork Saturday. I put in at the cabins. Water is 1 foot below normal summer pool stain on launch pier. I talked to the park office and was told the lake will be drawn down starting at the end of this month - 3 feet below summer pool....
     
  4. Has anybody did anything around the cabins??? I will be there next month.
     
  5. Salt Fork is not a flood control lake and has never been drawn down in the past, except for the repair a couple years ago. Why are they drawing the lake down?

    They said the drawdown was to releive the pressure of the spring rains for next year. Why they can't wait till January is beyond me, still fishing time in November and December. The Morning Glory ramp will be shut down as it only has about 2 foot of water when full:(
