    Sunset doesn't open until the concessionaire opens for the season at the campgrounds which is Memorial Day weekend. Been this way for years. Fortunately you can still launch at Sunset after the concession closes after Labor Day until the first snows. Guides tried pushing for an earlier start date but they have been declined.

    I've never seen a dock at the Union Valley dam ramp.

    Frustrating they don't open the Sunset ramp earlier. Loon is the same. Nice facilities at both, the public can't use for a month or more, even when they're free of snow. I expect it's a maintenance cost / vandalism issue. May be some other regulation thing, but I sure wish it could be changed.

    Even so, both lakes are accesable and nice places to be this time of year.

    I ended up driving up there on Sunday to look at the area, talked to someone waiting just outside the sunset gate waiting for a park ranger. They were saying the sunset ramp won't open until Memorial day. Didn't go over to the Dam, do you know if that ramp ever has a dock?

    Hit Ice House yesterday in the afternoon. Marked lots of fish in the 10-40' range but got skunked. Beautiful day though.

    Union Valley

    Any reports from UVR? Heading up on Monday. Is the sunset ramp open yet? I imagine if the fishing ain’t good the view of the crystal basin has to be awesome!!!
