I went out to check it about a week ago and there are so many trees growing in it you will never be able to cast a line in it. I can't imagine a boat even trolling in that lake with hundreds of trees in it. I walked all the way down to the splllway and that part looks great. I honestly don't feel it will be open for trout season. If it is open then they didn't cut the trees down and do the jog right! Go check it out and see what I mean. You will be surprised!
