Due to the restoration project water is extremely low. DNR tried to put in a make shift ramp I would say it is a failure. Smaller boats can launch 18' and bigger make sure you have two guys. One in the boat one backing truck up till water is in the cab to get enough water under the boat.

I have not had much luck at this lake. It gets a lot of fishing pressure.
