I wonder if the drowning today will give them a reason to shut it down again

Condolences to his family. Please be careful out there.
Plan is still to be open to the end of March.

Hey Jim, can the game warden start writing tickets for people not following the regs of how many people in the boat? Prayer's to this man's family and friends.

First I have heard of it. Anyone know what happened?

I have no say in what Game Wardens enforce but they do write tickets for exceeding number of people and the weight rating of vessels. That had nothing to do with today. The boat was rated for 4 people. It may have been a medical condition but we may never know for sure. Game Warden is doing the investigation.

We were out there one year way back when you could line up at the gate at all hours of the night/morning. They wouldn't let us in because a pontoon hadn't returned from the previous day. They finally decided to let us go because it was better to have 100+ boats looking for the pontoon than the park's 2-3 boats. Super foggy. The pontoon eventually showed up and everyone was ok.

The lake is shutting down in March?

Here we go.... 😂 They will shut down until next October. That was the plan all along from my understanding

I would like to thank the fisherman involved in trying to save him. I know one boat found the man on his 360 after he went under and dove in and with help from a second and third boat they got him onto the back deck and performed CPR as they quickly traversed the lake and turned him over to the ambulance at the ramp. It happened pretty far up in Squaw Creek. I know he did not make it but it was a valiant effort.

Prayers for the family, and agree kudos to the people that helped.

Prayers for the family. We were on the north in of the lake this morning and heard the sirens. Never knew they came to the lake. Sad deal

I was supposed to go fishing today with the guy that jumped in and tried to save the man. Work got in the way and I wasn’t able to go. He’s not on this forum. He’s pretty beat up over the ordeal. Can’t imagine what the family is going through either! Say a prayer for both. Can’t imagine what they are going through right now… those fish will always be there. But life can be taken away from you quickly
