Launch is in acceptable condition as long as users let trailers drain after launching and retrieving vessels. Parking lot is a little challenging.

doorman....we drove around there last Tuesday and the ramp looked useable, imagine more so now after the temps warmed up and there wasn't any bad weather for the past few days...beware of ice chunks floating down, and don't run over any Eagle watchers, lot of them flying around the area.....(the Eagles, not the watchers, that I noticed)

Is the boat landing by the Dam usable this winter?

I had no problem getting the boat in an out by myself at the dam.  There is an eddie there, so the current doesn't affect you too much.

Went tonight all gates open and the chute. Parking lot us accessible and saw l iui gets of a boat down the river. Casted from shore for an hour but waves and fast water made shore fishing tough.

I was out on the 13th and all gates were open.  I arrived at 10:00 and was the only boat out there for the next two hours.  Caught a lot of small eyes, six nice whities and a 30# sturgeon, lots of fun!  With the water levels as high as they are, I suspect the gates are still open and will be for another week or so.  FYI, I have some of my best fishing below the dam when the gates are open.
