View Full Version : Lake Tahoe Winter Ramp Closures

12-22-2008, 03:12 PM
Just a heads up!!![b]

The Cave Rock and Lake Forest ramps will remain open daily from 6 a.m. 4 p.m. through the winter, weather and lake conditions permitting. These are the hours that qualified aquatic invasive species inspectors will be on duty.

All watercraft launching at Lake Tahoe are subject to inspection by qualified personnel. Those vessels determined to be at high risk of carrying aquatic invaders such as the quagga or zebra mussels, must be decontaminated before launching. Lake Tahoe Inspectors are provided by the Tahoe RCD.

[b]IMPORTANT NOTE: In the event of a winter storm, the launch facilities may be closed during scheduled hours. The launch facility will re-open as soon as possible after significant storm activity has ended. Boaters must return to the launch ramps everyday before 4p.m., as gates will be locked.

For up-to-date information on ramp closures, call the Tahoe Aquatic Nuisance Species hotline at 1-888-TAHO-ANS. This toll free number is available seven days a week, during daylight hours.

Happy Fishin' and Happy Holidays! [smiley=grinch.gif]
