There's no public access anymore as far as I know.

You would think so. I'm not really sure how they could allow the marina to close off public access... It is public water, has been stocked with taxpayers' fish... I'm pretty sure I even remember hearing that they dumped a bunch of ShareLunkers into the lake.

I wrote the GBRA and TPW and basically asked the "taxpayer" question. Specifically, "why did is taxpayer money being spent to maintain a lake that is now private?" The answer I got was as expected. They are no longer stocking the lake so any taxpayer money going towards maintenance is for flood control and water conservation only. Basically, they say "Deal With It!" Oh, and they have no plans to open public ramp access ever.

i called the ski school and they would not even entertain the idea of letting fisherman pay to launch there. the skiers and wakeboarders have been wanting this for years, now its thier own private lake.

such a shame. it is a great little lake with quality fish in it.

Has public access been shut off by state law or could someone build a marina and open a ramp for angler's?

There is access, but it is way up the river, about halfway between New Braunfels and McQueeney. Its a subdivision off of 725 that has a public ramp in a powerline right-of-way. The ramp is narrow and a little broken up, but it will work.

How dangerous is the run in the river? Is it stumpy?

rivers not bad. follow depth finder to stay in the channel.
once you get way up toward the bandit golf course it gets real shallow in a hurry, about 3 ft for a little ways then drops a little deeper.
