Roark or Mutton Ramps

Recommended Posts

Im headed up tomarrow to get some fresh air with the 12 year old for the his first time on the water this year.  Just curious if either of these ramps are good or bad.  Ill figure it out either way but was just curious if ones better than the other. I will post a report of what I find tomarrow night.  We will be in search of Crappie or Walleye more than likely.

Do not use the north mutton creek ramp as the courtesy dock there is pulled out and unusable. I would recommend the south Mutton Creek ramp by the MC marina.  Good luck, the lake in that area is pretty muddy.  In fact, you might consider the State Park ramp to get into cleaner water...... although at this time of year you generally want to fish upper lake!!! ???  Good luck!

I know, Im so used to fishing the south end that Im not real confident anywhere north. LOL I know I need to get out and explore much more but this trip is mostly to get out and enjoy the day more than anything! I appreciate the advice and we may just check it out and take a little boat ride til we find cleaner stuff. I may even get bored and flip some run offs or throw a Spinner Bait in the mud.  Gonna crappie search and dont expect my normal success but will just enjoy the day off on the water more than anything. Ill be in my Red Targa cuizing around so anyone feel free to say Hey.

I don’t think you will find a courtesy dock anywhere on the lake except the pontoon dock at Hartley.  I plan to go tomorrow and look for clear water down by the dam.  I plan to put in at Stockton park.  It will be my last trip fpr a while as we are going on lockdown Thursday night.

Cedar Ridge is open with the dock in place at the right height. Water color was in the goldie locks area. Just a little high is all. Lots of folks out and about on the lake.

I forgot to mention that two A-10's buzzed the ramp when I was loading...

That is interesting.  It was way out of the water Saturday.

Both the Mutton Creek docks were in as well as the roark was in as well. Several boats using all of them today. Water around the mutton area was definitely muddy and we did not do too well. Found crappie stacked in 18 to 20 foot of water just could not get them to bite. The two we did catch were 14 in and we're beautiful but just could not get much fired up. It's always worth it to see the smiles even when it's slow.
