    Is there any reports of the water level? I've heard that only one ramp may be open.

    water level is at 417ft. fairly low, but lots of ramps are open...Browns, Folsom Pointe, & Granite Bay.

    John,
    Well,that sounds GREAT! Until those SoCal jerks decide to rip us off and they start draining it down so they can fill their pools and water the streets at night. Maybe they need to invest in water desalination plants down there. They've got lots of oceans really near by.

    They open up the lower level big wide ramp at Granite Bay when the water level hits 424-425' which I'm guessing will be in about 2-3 weeks...just in time for it to start going down again. I will be out there on Saturday. See you then.

    I wouldnt count on it getting that high
    I have been monitoring it twice a week for three weeks now and it is creeping up real slow,but you can still see the outline of the 1920s bridge on the South fork just downriver from the 5mph zone

    yes, but he dodged calls from the financing guy I hooked him up with. he kept telling me that he could pay cash in a couple months and even asked me to carry the paper if he put $70k down.

    Plus, on the test drive on Sunday he said that he wanted to put a wakeboard tower on the boat for speakers. I asked if he was serious and told him that you don't put towers on this kind of boat and he was dead serious. Oh well, if he does buy the boat I guess he can do whatever he wants with it after the check clears.

    Bummer, whenever I sell a boat it typicaly takes me about 2 years. Only takes me 10 minutes to buy one tho Then ya get the tire kickers that have nothing better to do than waste peoples time................
    So right after I buy one I put it up for sale
    Good luck on the sale.

    I tend to stay out of the South Fork when the water level is this low...too many hazards. The North Fork is the place to be anyway.

    I can't make it this weekend.
    The water is so low this year I feel pressured to get out every weekend I can. By July we'll all be setting around someones pool talking about how nice it would be to be boating.
    Or even worse; we'll be at the River
