    Hi, All. I just heard that the ramp at alton is not really useable, does anyone know where else to launch down there? Thanks!

    your only options are the ramp below the dam, columbia bottoms on the missouri or try the alton marina but u will have to lock through if your wanting to fish below. If the gates are still open u might have a hard time getting out at the marina being water is so low above the dam.
