TRWD called me Friday pm and told me they were opening the gate to the ramp at the Bridgeport dam. They are about finished with the projects they wanted to do there. He said they had a few more signs to put up, but that could be done anytime. There are rocks just under the surface to the south of the ramp. Only room for one boat to beach right now. The water has risen a little and you may not see those rocks. I could see them just under the surface before the water level rose. They will only be 1 1/2' to 2' below the surface. They extend out about 35 ft. from the shore. Jet ski trailers and anyone who is not very experienced at backing, please use 380 ramp. It is 300 ft. from the top to the water line and one lane. Please don't cause others to have to wait for you to figure out you are unable to back that far. It's going to be fun videoing you and submitting it to worlds funniest videos on national tv. Only one boat at a time will be able to unload and beach to park their truck. They asked if anyone sees folks throwing out or leaving their trash to please ask them to pick up after themselves. They don't have an attendant to clean up after everyone.
Hey, 9 months from the time I talked with them about fixing the ramp to it being opened is not quite as bad as the federal governments schedule.
At least now we have an alternative to the 380 ramp.
