I thought the lake was closed on 9-31, or is that just for boats? Also, is this the inlet on the S.E. corner? I fish it alot but never saw it this low! I'd like to take a walkabout and see what I can see, if it's open. I think I'd learn alot.

I didnt mark the shelf I did it they old fasioned way measured it and wrote it down .....Yea the inlet is located at the southeast corner of the lake ...You used to be able to park across the street but now its a little harder to find parking. I usually have someone drop me off .....

I did the same thing last year at Barr Lake...took a bunch of photos while the water was down to help me later if i ever fished it when its up. for the most part though its all the same....flat and sandy, with a few scattered rocks. there is a long rocky "road" type area that cuts across a portion of the lake though coming off of the dam, that might be a good one to remember...

digital cameras...gotta love em

Hey fishinguitars
I too was thinking about going out to Stanley, It has been years. Maybe I'll hold off till spring.
Good to know that the water is down so far.
I wonder if they are drawing it down to do dam repairs?
