I was reading in WV Game and Fish that there is another seasonal boat lauch other than the public boat launch off of Route 93. I'm interested in launching my fishing kayak away from the dam in shallower waters. It seems like someone mentioned before that there is a rough launch area at the end of Grassy Ridge Road, according to Google maps. Can anyone confirm this? I went down Grassy Ridge Road one time, but got spooked I guess. The road started looking quite rough when bearing right at the intersection noticeable on the map. Going straight leads to a Posted deadend. Everything seems well posted back there anyway. I also noticed that there is a boat launch near the baseball diamond on the west end of the lake; I assume that this area is inaccessible, provided for power plant employees only. Finally, I have found the public boat launch either crowded or desolate, depending on the day. Has anyone experienced any crime problems in this area? I think it is a shame that the old access roads east of the public launch ramp have been closed. I found that driving down to the old boat launch saved a lot of walking through the woods. Thanks for the input!
