Eagle Lake Guardians are now donating to Pine Creek Restoration projects to help prevent an endangered or threatened species listing of our trout. You can help by going to Eagle Lake Guardians and making a donation. The faster it is funded, the faster we can get the job at hand done.
10-12-14: Lake Elevation at 5092.035 on Sept 16 from 5092.18 on 9-5-14.
BATHROOMS AND FISH CLEANING STATION AT THE MARINA ARE CLOSED.
THE PORTABLE OUTHOUSE IS REPORTED AS "DISGUSTINGLY FULL".
EAGLE CAMPGROUND IS OPEN. OUTHOUSES BUT NO WATER. VERY SMALL FEE REQUESTED SEE THE CAMP HOST. I HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THE CAMPGROUNDS, I JUST LET YOU KNOW THEY ARE THERE AND WHAT TO EXPECT. ANYONE PLANNING A TRIP IN AN RV, REMEMBER THAT THIS IS THE TIME OF YEAR THAT LOW TEMPS FREEZE UP WATER LINES AND TANKS. I RECOMMEND BRINGING BOTTLED WATER RATHER THAN FILLING TANKS, AT LEAST YOU CAN THAW THE WATER FASTER & KEEP IT INSIDE WHERE YOU BEST KEEP THE HEAT ON. THERE IS NO WAY THAT THIS CAMPGROUND WILL BE FILLED UP SO DON'T WORRY ABOUT THAT. PLENTY OF ROOM & ONLY ABOUT A 15 MINUTE WALK TO PIKES PT FOR EXCELLENT SHORE FISHING.
THE COURTESY DOCK HAS BEEN REMOVED FOR THE SEASON. DANGEROUS CONDITIONS FOR ALL BOATS. LARGER BOATS HAVE BEEN DRAGGING BOTTOM OVER THE SHOAL. THE DOCK HAS TO BE REMOVED AS PER THE LAW BY BOATING AND WATERWAYS. The docks in the old harbor are protected from the elements and damage & was always open until freezing up.
I personally don't recommend launching. Folks familiar with the terrain & very small boats might do ok. But, due to the reported motor damage, the gates might end up being closed and locked at any time. Just don't be surprised. Our accesses to the lake and fishing have been being removed a little at a time for years. Perhaps we will work on that next season.
Float tubes, pontoons and kayaks are allowed to use the ramp to launch. I suggest on the east side of the ramp, be ready to drop off and head up to park. Don't doddle, don't sit there for 30 minutes getting your rods & gear ready but be ready before you drive down.
Spalding Marina is not usable. Stones Landing is not usable. Eagles Nest is out of gravel & in soft mud now too. The low water ramp at Gallatin is about a 25 minute drive from Spalding at 45mph. Ya just have to get up and moving about 1/2 hour earlier than when you could launch here. Fuel consumption is a wash if not a saving. It used to be a 5 gallon trip from Spalding to Eagle's Nest or Shrimp Island and back in the boat whereas its about 2 1/2 gallons in my truck & about 2 gallons to get anywhere in the south basin and back after trolling. Personally, I am saving fuel by driving down south!
