Dannie Golden just called me and asked me to post this. He got a call from Chris True from TPWD. He was on the water so asked me to post.

As of right now, they have CLOSED both the Buck Creek and Sanger Ramps and want everyone using either Isle Du Bois (State Park) or Johnson. He also said there was a very good chance all ramps could be closed as early as tomorrow and to look for updates.

Really? The lake is only 2 feet high. It's still going up but most of those ramps should be good for several more feet

Many more ramps on that lake. Lake has been a lot higher, there will still be open ramps.

I've also put in at much higher levels. I'm just passing on info I was asked to post. Don't shoot the messenger who was just trying to help....better yet, everyone complain about it and head out to Sanger's ramp and try to launch then come back and complain more because they closed it.

my buddy just told me they might close all ramps at 4 foot over pool? I thought when it came up from the big drought in the early 2000s it was way higher than that and the ramps were open

this sounds like the best solution


Do you know if they will make the marina close their ramps? They should be able to handle plenty of water as well

I was being sarcastic. TPWD is only going to close ramps if they feel they could become unsafe to use for whatever reason. I am by no means suggesting people complain...that just tends to be what a % of the people on here do all the time. Again, don't shoot the messenger. They have closed 2 ramps and will most likely close more. As RedRanger said, there are other ramps out there that TPWD doesn't own. If I recall last time we flooded, Sanger Marina was one of the only ramps open and was charging something like $20 to launch.

so was I! cheers

Hopefully the water will level off soon and we won't have to worry about it but that seems unlikely.

With Lewisville still up it could take them a while to pull Roberts down.

RHBC is keeping an eye on this. Nothing said about Jordan yet? We may be postponing or trying a late change of location. We will be in touch with our members!
