    A year or so ago, I tried to make up a list of Gateway area boat ramps. This info would include both high & low water levels where use of the ramp would not be possible. I can no longer find my list and the thread was lost in the last server change, I guess.
    Could you please give me any info you would have, thanks.

    How about adding which RIVER GAUGE you are basing those levels on?:wink:

    Some may be obvious, some are not, and some folks just may be unfamiliar with the area they are planning to fish and not have a clue which gauge to look at.

    I don't know, shoot, I just use the site you gave me and don't you dare expect me to spell it. Hell, I can barely say it well enough for folks to understand.:wink:

    I just meant to list the appropriate Gauge on the list.

    St. Louis Gauge, Alton Lock 26 Tailwaters Gauge, Grafton Gauge, MO River St. Charles Gauge.......etc.

    I am in agreement, however, there is a problem.
    I tried this once before and while initial interest was good, it died a slow death. Far to many of the ramps had no info because the folks that used those ramps never added the info needed. I got tired of trying to pry it out of them and could not locate it on the internet.:sad2:

    Tom Plattin Rock is based off of the St Louis gauge. Too high to launch at 30 feet and it's never too low to launch. Might want to note it's private as well.

    Parkers landing (Foley Ramp). Water is at a good level. Easy launching, water exiting chute at about 4 to 5 feet. Sand flat straight out from the launch is underwater, but not deep enough for most boats to exit straight into the river, just a reminder. Corps of Engineers just put new gravel on the parking lot and ramp. This info from yesterday when I was there.
