Did you launch from the steel pads or to the side on the asphalt road? We are launching this afternoon.

Thanks for the heads up

It’s a shame someone with a backhoe isn’t down there cleaning up the random rocks and moving them out of the way. What better time to do it? I know they are short handed but timing is everything. I know we are “just” the north end but look at our dock compared the the other end. They are not doing much for the north ends future launching needs. A couple hours would make a big difference moving big rocks out of the way and away from the ramp.
There, I have vented!

It will take a huge runoff to even bring up the lake level to the existing ramp. I just don’t see that happening especially after the drop from the coming six months. Hope they will use this time to make a big reconfiguration of Bullfrog including a new or improved ramp. The upper houseboat buoy field at Bullfrog doesn’t look very far from the end of the bay.

to the side on the asphalt road....where you think it's safe....
Sorry to be a pain, can you give me a little more direction on where it’s at? Is it ride behind the trailer before you pull off, or further back? Is it toward the side near the plates, the middle or more the land based side?

Thanks for any extra information

@PowellBride I launched there two weeks ago just to the right of the orange cones as you face the steel grate. You will need to launch almost perpendicular to how you would launch on the steel mats. I had no issues there but the closer you launch towards the shore(or the main ramp) there is a large rock as well as a steel cable now. I forgot to mention this in my report but someone was taking there boat out and had their outdrive get wound up in a steel cable and almost yanked it out of the boat as they pulled out. Not sure what happened to the cable.

With that said the two cones that are in the pic posted above that is not using steel grates is new. Not sure if that is the NPS recommended spot to launch there?

One more word of warning, from the USGS data it looks like the asphalt spur is in a little bit of a trench on the north side, so the water might be a little more shallow if you go north from the ramp. Here is a visual representation with the green above water, grey underwater (approximately). Looks like the width of the slope is about 2x the width of the level part of the ramp.

No problem with the launch ramp, but there is supposedly a large cement block right out from the end of the Courtney dock. Several bass boats warned us as we went to pick up a friend Saturday night. We couldn’t see it then, or this afternoon when we pulled out, but water was a bit choppy this afternoon.
