I saw in the crappie section where the TRWD is extending the ramp at the Dam....
Does any one know if its open yet or when the opening is planned?

A new section of concrete was poured to tie into the old asphalt ramp under the water. The gate was still closed as of yesterday. The question is how far does the old ramp go out. Also, won't be the easiest launch, very narrow and FULL of rocks.

certainly not ideal

but at least their is an alternate to the 380 ramp

talked with jeff, he said according to his sonar, the ramp goes out about 15-20 more feet...

i was in there last year looking at the ramp and found the rocks.... some 1-2 feet under and big

water is a little lower now Caution is the word for sure

im going to give it a try next time on bridgeport

I haven't had the opportunity to see what they have done yet. I hope they removed those big rocks that I showed them about 25 to 30 ft. out in the water. If not the ramp won't be good for most people. There won't be enough room to beach your boat to park your truck. If you can't back straight for 100 ft. don't even try it. It's a long way to the water. When you are backing in right at the shoreline you will probably need to turn your trailer to the south a little to avoid the rocky shore to the north. There's the long rocky point on the north and a lot of big rocks to the south, just a lane one boat wide through to deeper water. Plus a long walk from the parking. It should help with relieving the crowd at the 380 ramp though. I'm looking forward to using it myself. Tight lines! Jeff

Well I walked the ramp at the dam today. It is 297 ft. from the sign to the water.
Long way to back a trailer for a lot of folks.
Also, they did NOT pull all the rocks out. They pulled them to the south and made a wall of them.
Why? I don't know.
There is only room to beach one boat at a time, so be prepared to wait awhile when loading and unloading.
It will be a week or so before they open the gate so we can use the ramp, according to TRWD.

Talked with the Bridgeport lake super today. They are doing work on the parking lot. He said the gate would open in a week or two. It will still be a difficult launch for some folks. I guess we will all have to have some patients (sp?) if we use this ramp.
Tight lines

Well, more delays! Wouldn't you know it, government red tape. The "powers that be" keep adding to the things they want done to the ramp and parking areas, before opening the ramp to the public. They also want to finish the twin points project before spring arrives. It would be nice if they extended the new ramp at twin points, but haven't heard anything about that. Which means Bridgeport takes a backseat for now. It may be the lake will fill before they get around to finishing both projects. But according to them " it will at least be ready to use if the lake ever gets this low again". lol I'm sure there is some sort of thought process going on but I'm darned if I can figure it out. At least they are attempting to make some much needed repairs.

Tight lines! Jeff

Dangit. I wish they would at least open the gate to the parking area. I can launch my kayak just about anywhere but I need a place to park.

Told me they were going to post signs, etc. Vehicles with trailers can park wherever, but any without trailers will have to park on top of the hill. That's a long walk but better than paddling from 380 bridge.
I guess to be sure there is enough room for boat trailers to turn around and park. going to block off the area to the south of the dock so no parking there anymore. too many people backing in too far and getting stuck in the loose gravel.

I won't mind the walk because it will beat paddling from 380. Keep us posted on when it opens.

Funny what they are worried about these days. Jeff, I know you remember going up and down that ramp when the road was just dirt. Real adventure when it was wet. The parking rule is a good one though....even though liked the back in spot on the South side.

Yes, I remember the rock ledge about half way up with the little dip right below it! If you didn't hit it just right you would definitely spin out. I used to get up speed right off the ramp and shoot up to the top then stop and tie everything down. It's certainly better now and should be better when they finish these repairs, except for the blocked off spaces south of the dock.

Checked today no progress made , guess the weather shut down any work this week .. understandable ..

did notice the ramp 1/2 way down on the right ( when facing the water) has broken down and is now a bigger problem. didnt look like there is any base material under it ...
just a crack in the ramp wouldnt be that big on an issue ...
now it appears the broken area needs to be removed , base material replaced and new concrete put in .....
as stated earlier it should be better when they finish the repairs ...

We are patiently waiting ....
