Outdoors: Popular boat ramp temporarily closing


The Speelyai Boat Ramp on Lake Merwin will be unusable for approximately two weeks beginning Jan. 19 as the reservoir is being temporarily lowered to accommodate work at Lake Merwin Camper’s Hideaway.

For this period of time, there will be no ability to launch boats on Lake Merwin.

PacifiCorp will be communicating with management at Camper’s Hideaway and will restore the lake levels to allow boat launching as soon as is safely possible.

Yale Lake is accessible at the Saddle Dam boat launch.

Fish report

The Dalles Pool — Three bank anglers kept one walleye; Nine boats/14 rods kept 16 walleye and released two walleye.
