North Lake observations

Man, does reading some of these posts bring back memories, the cut between BF Bay and Halls I have run lots of times. I can remember pulling up to the "super market" and walking only a few steps to get inside. I remember the ice cream and pizza. That goes back some.
Another memory is a Golden eagle feeding two little ones on a steep slope, my boys the oldest over 50 now says that is one of their favorite memories.
Thanks you guys

We are are planning a trip for next week. I keep debating whether to launch at Halls Crossing or Bullfrog. Did you see any large boats launching and or retrieving the the Bullfrog North ramp? Our boat is 24’ but sits high on the trailer due to the forward drive outdrive. We have to back in about 10’ further than other boats. I guess the question would be if my boat was 34’ long could I still launch at the Bullfrog launch ramp or should I head for Halls Crossing? Thank you beforehand for any information anyone may provide.
plenty of your boat size launching at north ramp bullfrog -- you will have no problems--

Caught a lot of strippers out of The Wash and used to go way up the Dirty Devil and hide behind the cliffs for shade. Then under the bridge and up Colorado, beach the boats and hike up Dark canyon with the kids and dog and play in the stream. Oh the days of full pool.

Just to jog the memories of those who were there, here's a couple of photos from the north lake wayback machine...

Getting gas at Hite Marina on 9-2-99, when the lake was at 3693...

Then there's the Hite overlook, taken on 8-15-86, lake level 3698...

Finally, cliff jumping into North Wash, same day, 8-15-86, lake at 3698....

I LOVE seeing these pictures. For many years we didn't even go to Bullfrog or Halls. Hite was THE place. I sure miss that end of the lake.
If you have any more older pictures, I would love to see them.

We kept our old boat in a wet slip at Hite for about 5 years back in the 90s. The log jams from the rivers in the spring time were always a challenge to navigate to clear water.

Cool find!! Interesting (and a reminder) that even all the way back in 2002, mussels were already a major topic and concern...and now look forward 19 years. Sad panda :-(
