Even if the ramps are dry, launch should still be possible, right?

I thought Monticello has a claypan/claypan like bottom most everywhere?

The lake has a new lower "full pool" but the big ramp is just fine. The water actually has come up a a couple of inches in the last week or so from the rain.

Went last Saturday. Could still launch but courtesy dock high and dry and area to the left of the ramp very shallow. If you draft more than 6 - 8 inches of water you probably will not reach new shoreline to get out without getting feet wet. If you have a keel guard and power poles best bet is to park on the ramp. Water temps ranged from 45-50 on Saturday but it was cloudy with north then east and then south east winds. Creek past railroad bridge is 3-4 ft in the middle in front of the power lines. While the channel itself is 5-9ft with the deeper water being just inside the bridge. Past the power lines is pretty much 1-2 ft or less outside of the creek and secondary drains. Pretty much all of the stumps are a foot or two out of the water. If you go up in there do not hang a hard right when you go under the railroad bridge with big motor down. That rock pile is now in inches of water. Hope that helps give an idea.
