Does any one have a number to the decon station @ Bull Frog to find out if boats are still able to launch?
Was thinking on going tomorrow the 26th but hate to make the journey if launching is not possible.

Launching is currently labeled as “at your own risk.” Has been for a while, usually NPS will make an official release if they officially close or say launching isn’t available at location x anymore. It’s your own risk right now, make sure you know currently launching conditions and make a personal choice.

The Decon station and whether or not they’re cleaning boats right now is a different matter than launching.

Thanks to both of you. I keep hoping for a new report from someone who just came from there to see the launching conditions but so far no luck. I was thinking if there was a phone # for the decon station you at least ask them if boats are still able to launch. Do to the ridiculous price of fuel these days I hate to spend $400+ in just truck fuel to find out ramp is closed.

Yes I went North and fished Four mile the first trip, went the back and netted some Shad with a throw net and caught a limit of Crappie, but was getting 4 or 5 skinny Striper's for every Crappie. Slow trolling Yum jig's and a half of Shad. IT was to muddy to camp in there so don't jump out into it like I did.
I went back South and finished the trip catching a lot of Striper. Have a good trip and be careful if you go to Four mile, from the Horn to four mile you might see 4ft of water out in the middle stay left.
Have a good one

The silt is on the move! The latest pictures from Sentinel Hub show the sediment delta to lake transition about halfway between Two Mile and Four Mile Canyons, and it seems to be advancing faster than what you might expect from just water level going down. Anybody know what Navionics thinks is the current depth in that area above the Horn?

With the lake level adjustment at-64ft.

Zoomed in on the mouth of 4 Mile to depth.

I just made a quick comparison of water level versus Sentinel Hub views and USGS bathymetry data, which shows about 40 feet of sediment buildup between Two Mile and Four Mile Canyons since the bathymetry data was collected no later than 2018. Be careful out there!
