    Default Pine Flat Lake

    Does anyone frequent this lake? Looking for a good middle-ground spot for Nor/Socal friends to meet up at. We heard there are a lot of snakes out there. Does anyone have personal experience out there? Jet boat friendly?

    Lots of snakes around PineFlat. But most of the time they are not an issue.

    In the lake
    Seeing them in the lake is most common in the spring early summer when the water level is rising (floods the burrows/dens). They use to be an issue way back when I was a kid, my parents didn't like to go to PineFlat because a snake tried to climb in the boat. Back then it was common to see them swimming around out there. But I haven't seen a swimming snake out there in a long time. Lake doesn't get that full anymore.

    On the shore line
    You do need to watch your step and where you stick you hands . There are snakes around that lake, and Rattle snakes are common in the area.

    That being said, you will be spending most of your time in the boat anyway. Pine Flat does not have much in the way of "nice sandy" shore line. Its mostly muddy messy or rocky. Lots of house boats on PineFlat just for that reason. The lake is "hot boat" friendly for the most part as long as your not being stupid. If you plan on open headers, or have a boat that has trouble with no wake zones, stay away from the first launch ramp (Deer Creek Marina). That's where the Sheriff boats dock and they will enforce the no wake zone in that marina. The lake has 3 other launch ramps (depending on water level).

    What he said. Our rule with the kids was "stay below the high water mark". We've seen snakes but only a couple in the water and been going to Pine Flat since '64. Just pay attention in the rocks, driftwood, and grass.
