    Default Status of the lake

    Thinking of getting out this weekend to chase some striper. Any report of if/where theres ice and if the schools are up lake or down lake with the recent cold weather?

    Pictures of the lake on FB from Anna Point show its frozen up to 208 bridge. I talked to people at High Point and they have 1 ramp with narrow path that boats are breaking out to get to clear water downlake. Sturgeon Creek is the place to launch at this point as they use a Pontoon boat to break ice and tow it away to create open areas around the ramps.
    cheers,

    From VGDIF website today:

    The boat ramp located off of Rt. 522 has been closed since the Department lost its lease. Efforts are currently underway to establish another free public access to the lake. There is a handicapped-accessible catwalk for anglers at Dike #3 on Route 622. From Route 601, turn right onto Route 701 and watch for Route 622 on the right. From Route 208, take Route 652 to Route 701.

    Tried launching at the beach marina by the dam two weeks ago. with the lake so low theres really not enough water there to launch and recover safely. The trailer ends up way off the ramp and theres still on 12-18 of water to float the boat.
