Does anyone know if the boat docks are in @ WF?

I talked with Dan at Fishin Hole and he was out Sunday and the docks were not in. I do not know when they're going in. But the lake is filling and the ramps were very usable.

Dam, I need to get into some Lakers. I'm still a little green when it comes to boating and I'm not 100% about beaching my boat.

It gets a little tricky when launching by yourself, doesn't it? Especially without docks! I've had my share of creative boat launches. My favorite is the tie the bow line to the trailer, unstrap the boat, back it in, then pull it up to the ramp far enough so you can get out and guide it to a safe beaching area. Of course I've got an insanely expensive ($200) keel guard, a glorified plastic strip, to help me beach it on a concrete ramp.

But the best thing is to always carry a pair of waders in the truck. Opens up all sorts of options. But if you don't want to beach it then you're pretty much out of luck without a partner or dock.

They were not in as of last Sunday,
But the trout were hitting great.
Not a lot of pike action though

Just had some friends from the western slope hit the Fork 2 weekends in a row......did very well 2 weekends ago, even landing a 23lb Mack and 10 or 12 fish total. Went again last weekend and only caught 3 total but 1 was 17lbs.

Was thinking about doing a 2/3 day trip up in this area? Can anyone tell me the rates on the campsites? Mostly interested in having some fun with the pike, but curious about these Macks...never fished for 'em....Any general tactics? Special Gear? I would also appreciate any tips on the lake as a whole, as I've never fished there.

Sorry, didn't mean to butcher the thread. I'll start a new one!

Any update yet?

Am going Saturday to try and get my first Pike and try and get some Lakers. Anyone have any tips for a 1st timer at the fork?

Jay, Do you have room for one more and help w/ gas? I've fished w/f and had good success in the past.
