Planning to head up to Jefferson tomorrow AM and looking for current updates. Last I seen water was low due to issues with the dam.

Hey what were the conditions??? Is the gate already closed?

All gates are open no issues getting in and up to the lake. First parking lot is closed due to work on the dam.
Nice day slight breeze with a little wind from time to time but not bad for Jefferson. We arrived around 8:30 water level was very low I'm guessing 20ft.
Fishing was good using bait I caught 3 bows and 3 small lakers. I threw every lure I had including rainbow rapalas and caught nothing or had any follows.
Great day to go fishing!

So it looks like the boat ramp is high and dry....What was the exposed lake bottom like at the bottom of the ramp? Could a couple of guys carry a small boat to the water at the bottom of the ramp?

Wacokid57 I watched a few people launch from there without a problem.
