With-out going to each place how would I find the names for each part of a lake so I can mark them on my maps?

Like people say 'we were fishing near massyes draw' or plum creek. or lake loop etc etc etc

Id like to know where each place on Aurora, Chat, Cherry, Union, Boyd,Barr,Jackson or any other metro lake.

Thanks

-Jay

Jay,

Get a few maps, that's about the only way. They sell'em in the bait shops etc. I don't think the maps are online with the names. If you want a specific....Here's a couple for you.

Aurora has two main coves into which water flows. as you face south, the right one is Senac, and the left one is LoneTree (cause there's only one tree there. Think I got that right. Just ask.

Jay,

Massey's draw is between the swim beach and the north western boat ramp at chatfield. There are 2 submerged gravelpits there. A little farther east is an old road bed that runs towards the riprap shore. There is also an old road bed that runs between the two gravel pits in massey draw toward the handycap fishing access over by the marina. A bridge remains underwater mid lake along that road.

Plum creek is the creek that comes in on the east side of the lake by the marina. It is pretty flat and muddy back in the bay, but there is quite a bit of structure basically in a line from the marina to that little point that comes off the dam. There are several gravel pits in this area also.

A map is a must have for chatfield. There are lots of gravel pits, humps (some unmarked) and road beds out there. A GPS is also a good idea, I still haven't relocated two of my favorite spots (about 30 feet in diameter) that I had marked and have lost the coordinates for.

May want to stop by local bait shops and marinas and ask they usually will tell you or pull out a map and show you.

Jay,

Any of the state parks (online) have maps of the park. Those maps ussually have the names of all the creeks, camping areas, etc. Its a start.
