I was talking with some of the equipment workers there this past weekend and one of them said it was supposed to be completed in Feb-Mar time frame. BUT, this weather had put them behind alittle. At this point, it seems like the weather is playing a big part in the repairs.
Thanks for the info. I have a silly question. Do you think many big fish survived in the lake. I know there was some whopper bass and cats in greenbo. Some nice holdover trout as well. Just curious.
I don't know. They dropped the lake level 30 ft to do the repairs. In the area of the dam, there is still plenty of water. Be ready to walk to get to it though. You can't see water from the boat ramp. They are also working on the boat ramp, making it longer and easier to get a boat in / out.
There used to be trout in the area of the dam. You would have to park at the ramp and walk to the dam, because the dam area is closed.
I ve heard that the water near the dam is around 90 ft deep. If they lowered the level on 30 ft then there should be 50 ft or so of water at the dam. You would think that this would be enough water to sustain the holdover trout. I'll have to go check down to the dam and fish some this weekend. I drove up to the dock this past weekend to check it out. I would like to see that trash picked up around the lake before they begin damming it back up. I would volunteer to pick some trash up if enough people would assist in the cleanup.
