Just wondering if Rampart Reservoir is currently allowing motorized boats and may be open now. Can you drive to the launch area? I heard at one time it was closed and haven't gone fishing there yet...Any comments on the fishing there? Thanks for any comments or advice.

I stopped going there because of the road in-some of the worst washboard I've ever been on. Only about 7-8 miles but it will seem like a lifetime.

Glad to know about the washboard. Kind of like the tests they use to see when things will rattle apart. I agree kirbydog, 8 miles is a lon-n-n-ng ways to deal with washboard. Think I'll take a slow ride up one day without the boat to check it out and just fish the shore. Thanks folks, appreciate the heads-up on that.

Theres always the chance that they have graded the road. Let us know how it is.

I hope to get up there later next week and whenever I do get up there I'll post any comments I have on the current road condition. As it is, I get my fair share of trailer jolts on Colorado Springs roads...:)
Thanks for your comments folks.

Take a light trailer

I have done well this year with a Kayak and Pistol Pete type lures.
