I-fish, the lake is closed on Wednesday, you have to go online to Squaw Creek Reservation
to make a reservation to fish , they only allow 150 boats and check each boat in and out for the day, for security reasons. The fee is $30 cash and the gates open around 630am. If there is fog which can happen in cold temperatures with the warm power plant water, or other weather issues they will not let you leave the launch cove (past the buoys) until they determine you can leave and return safely. These changes were made after 9/11 to reopen the lake for fishing, you have to leave the by 4pm unless instructed otherwise by the staff when entering.
