dartag will know... with all his days off he has time to drive around looking at lakes to plan his next fishing trips... I haven't driven by Kent since maybe 2 weeks ago. It looked low then but not easy to see much from a little car whizzing by on 96.

I drive past on 96 often and always check the corner rock for the water levels, don't believe it is up yet. I think they wait until about the end of April before they raise the lake.

That sounds about right. Should be soon.

Seems like you can usually still launch at the East ramp in that farthest right hole.

The East ramp is the one they are rebuilding.   I posted about it last fall.  The old cement docks and everything had been removed.   A new ramp at a very steep angle was poured.  They must be going to floating docks.  The angle of the ramps will make it nicer to launch I hope.   Guess I will have to drive out there and check it out.

46 degrees at the end of my dock 3 feet down this afternoon.  Really windy with Big Whitecaps.  Water Clarity is great.

For some reason I guess I thought the Kent Lake ramp work was done now. Whoops.

Boy! That was fast - from 'no one knows when they're going to finish it' to done in a couple days!! Hope you get in and maybe even catch some fish.

NO.  Steve said the ramp is NOT Complete.  The ramp is done but the pavement is not in. It is still blocked.  The West ramp is open

Oh boy... that is the 1st time T-bone has ever led me astray!?! I probably started something now by 'getting the word out.' Won't be the first time I've gotten myself into trouble over a boat ramp...

What?!? I don't remember...??

Heck! I'm even getting a few senior discounts these days too. And look how confused I got myself over Minn Kota trolling motors...?? Darn shame... but I am going fishing a few more times this week, so that should help.

I hope so too. I also hope to post some fish pictures tomorrow. Big ones might be a lot to ask for... but I'm going to try.
