DEEP: Beseck Lake Boat Launch

Beseck Lake Boat Launch

By December 1, 2018, the lake will be drawn down 3 feet. That elevation will be maintained until March 1, 2019.  During this time, the boat launch area may be shallow. The lake is scheduled to be refilled by April 2, 2019. However, there is always a risk that refilling may not be achieved by the target date due to unusually dry weather conditions.
