    i called down there Monday and they said the only boat ramp open is the one by the rental cabins and to use at your own risk.

    Welcome !!

    I am also interested in what the water level is like.

    Osprey, what were you targeting?? From boat or bank? I was thinking of catfishing there friday night, but was not sure if I want to fish there or not. If I go Friday, I will let you guys know what it is like!

    I fished Salt Fork today. Water is about 3 foot above summer pool. No problem getting in at the rental cabin ramp. LiquidTension - once you enter the park off 22 - follow the signs toward the lodge. When you see a golf course to your left, start looking for "cabins" sign on the right. It's kind of hard to get lost up there... :)

    Once you make the right turn onto "Cabin" road keep going till you hit the ramp and put your boat in the water and have fun fishing.

    I was jigging today for saugeye and caught not one saugeye. Too many leaves in the trees for the saugeye bite. I caught a bluegill, then a few minutes later a 12" bass. An hour later I was fishing near the ramp - off the swimming beach which is underwater and a big cat took it and ran. I fish light line so this cat was fun. Ten minutes later I got this cat to the surface and a fellow fishing nearby trolled up and weighed the cat - I don't have a scale - but this fellow weighed my catch - 15 lb shovelhead.

    Anyways - waters a bit high - but you can get in and out with no problem.

    Have fun !!

    thanks wormbrain (1st post welcome) for the heads-up..... my boats only 16.5 ft. should be no problem. man i cant wait to get there and put this week behind me. I'd imagine the lake is real calm and mud has settled as well, hence no pleasure boats. 'ppreciate it.. :)
