Buch/Burnet County Park Ramp update.
Fished Buch this morning. Launched yak at Burnet Co. Ramp (FM 2341). It's getting pretty shallow.
There is still 24-25 linear feet of concrete ramp underwater. The water at the end of the concrete is roughly 28" deep.
Careful! There is a 12-14 inch drop-off at the end of the concrete.
BTW, fishing wasn't so great.

I kinda helped a guy load his big-ass Bay Stealth CC while I was loading the yak, today.
He had to hang the rear (tandem) trailer axle off the concrete to get loaded.
It's hard to see where the concrete ends. Ya gotta feel around with your foot.
Just wanted to get the word out.

Looks like they are getting a little rain up that way so maybe it will help. Sure would suck if we had to start using a different ramp. So convenient just pulling the boat 500 yds to drop it in the water.

We've received 1 inch of rain here in Tow since this morning. Let's hope we get at least 3-4 more inches in the next couple of days."When I read about the evils of drinking, I gave up reading." - Henny Youngman

I launched the yak at the Burnet Co. ramp again this afternoon. THinking the rain might get the fish stirred up.
When I pulled in there were 3-4 empty trailers. All tandem axle.
As I was launching, some men with a single axle trailer were about to launch their deep-V boat. Hated to rain on their parade, but did warn them. They were very appreciative and decided not to risk it.
A fellow bank fishing when I got there said a Pontoon had a helluva time loading a little earlier.
When I was leaving all the tandem trailers were gone and there were no boats left in the water. So, I guess they all loaded ok. Another guy launched a single axle trailer at dark, with difficulty, after I warned him. It's his business, but I don't know if he realizes loading is a different animal all togather, or why he was launching at dark with storms all around us.
I don't mean to beat a dead horse, but I once had to replace a trailer axle because of the exact conditions of this ramp.
It ain't cheap or easy.
I'm thinking, unless things change, Edgewater is going to have another bumper crop of 5 dollar bills this Fall.
And, the fishing sucked again!
