Riffe lake launch current water level?

Post by The Quadfather » Tue Jul 02, 2019 6:20 pm

Can anyone on here describe the current water level at the Mossyrock, Riffe lake launch?
I know the lake gets super low, and yes, a recent report mentions the floating dock, etc.
But man, that a long drive to have any issues with a launch.

Thanks

My wife and I go 'lure scrounging' down there when the water is really low and have always been able to launch, but it is a long steep back up to get down there!

Yeah, I’m familiar with the back-up, and I suspect that it currently reaches the water. There were a couple reports recently.
It’s just a super long drive for me to find a problem.
I did look at the link that was above, but I did not see anything that gave any information.

from the link above

Lake levels and boat launches as of July 2

Riffe Lake – 739.13 feet of elevation (maximum of approx. 749 ft)
Learn about changes to Riffe Lake levels.
Mossyrock Park boat launch is open.

Our new Mossyrock Park boat launch has two long lanes usable at lower elevations: one lane is usable to approximately 720 feet; the second lane is usable to approximately 708 feet. The longer lane should be available all summer, fall and early winter (in years with normal inflows).

Thanks for the clarification, Hlindsay. I read the part about 739’-749’, but didn’t really understand it. But that other paragraph makes good sense.

It took a little digging to find the second paragraph. Glad I could help.
