Haven't been there in years. Taking the daughter tomorrow morning. What ramps are open? Last time I was there two mile bridge west and east were closed.

Any help for sandies would be appreciated. Just looking to get out for a couple hours to get the boat going again.

All ramps are open, I would recommend Sky Point or the State Park. Not sure on the fishing.

State park all the way, sky point if you just happen to be coming from up north.

Absolutely State Park and it's protected from the south wind. If you launch there head towards the dam and look for the boats usually out from Holiday Marina. Even though it's free I wouldn't launch on the west end of the bridge, too close to trouble. Good luck and be safe.

Reviving this post. Ended up not being able to go due to family stuff. Might be going tomorrow.

The public ramp? Where do you put your boat while you park? Doesn't look like much beach area without rocks.

The private ramp is bumpy and out of the way and costs like $10.

I'll just try the state park ramp I guess. I have an annual pass so it shouldn't cost anything. Thanks for the help.

We went last night for a few hours, launched near 2 mile bridge. The lake was windy and we were fishing for bass...They were not cooperating...I mean their only job is to eat a lure when presented and they just didn't understand that very well. We fished from 6-9 and we both caught one.. main lake points did the trick, mine came off of some lily pads but it was slow.
Rattle traps and paddle tails worked well.

Good Luck

Confusing answer. Caught "one each", "main lake points did the trick", "mine came off lilly pads", "rattle traps and paddle tails WORKED WELL"......? :-)

oops fast reply.
My partner caught a 2 lber on a main lake point with a rattletrap and missed a couple others. I caught a 1lber in Lily pads near that point on a paddle tail. I would focus on main lake points next time no matter how inviting those Lily pads look back in those coves👍

State Park is a no brainer. Launch and go straight across to Rabbit Cove. Go past the marina about 100 yards and fish the scattered bushes with a pumpkin green rage craw and weightless white fluke closest to the left bank.

That sucks. That seems to be an area that attracts them, however they have fenced off the woods around the parking lot that may help
