I am planning on visiting North Catamount quite a bit this year. I have an 11' Coleman Crawdad with electric motor. Where is the best place to put that boat in at? It looks like there is a road coming close to one of the fingers on the West side of the lake. Want to get as close as possible. Don't mind carrying the boat a little ways. :-)

It won’t be easy to get a crawdad down to the water. You must go through an opening less than 4 ft wide between a a concrete wall and large rock. I have a 42” wide canoe . Soft sand 50 yards. It’s worth it. Good fishing, Bald Eagles. On week days not unusual to be the only person on the lake. Avoid weekends if possible. Kayaks and stand up paddle boarders take over on warmers days. Lakers by the dam and cuttthrout near inlet pipe. Good luck.

I have been there several times and I know the exact spot you all are referencing. It looked like a royal pain in the rear to get my crawdad up, over and down to the river. And then back up again! That is why I was hoping that road leading to a finger on the opposite shore would provide better access. Sounds like it does not. I have only shore fished North Catamount. Any recommendations on what to use for trolling?? THANK YOU!
I have taken my crawdad to Monument Lake many times. It is the closest to me. Brush Hollow (not very good fishing) Rampart Reservoir, of course the south Catamount, Clear Creek, basically any lake that allows electric motors is fair game.
