    Regan, Ya might want to wait another week or two. The lower ramp is still to mudded over to put in unless you have a 4 wheel drive. I put in above the dam and locked through today. Caught 1 small skip and then drifted down to the gun club. didn't get a bite, Seen a few catfish on the sonar but very few. The guy at the lock must have been busy:roll_eyes:, took a little while to get back through the lock:eek:oooh:. Loaded the boat in a light rain and made it to Mcdonalds on Rogers when the storm hit. Pea sized hail and heavy rain:eek:oooh:.
