    Default Deepwater boat ramp 'CooperCreek'

    Just wanted to get the word out about the area we locals call Deepwater boat ramp. It is straight East of the town of Deepwater and ends in Cooper creek. Two great guys that I know have taken over the upkeep and trying to bring it back to what it was in the past. Brent and Mark have already did some major work to the ramp by adding a truck load of rock to the end of it so trailers will not fall off the end of the ramp when the water is low like right now. They have also moved the dock to the south side of the ramp. That's makes it easier for people to use and also keeps it out of the way if someone wants to load or unload two wide in the gravel area beside the ramp. They are also working on getting the bathrooms back open. After that it will be maintaining everything such as mowing and clean up when needed. They have some flyers made up and ask for a voluntary $15 annual donation to help them with upkeep. I let them know I would try and help them out when I can and would love to see a fundraiser of some sort to help them out. Not counting all the rock they dumped they will have fuel cost for mowing/weedeating and supplies like toilet paper to be bought. It has a nice pavilion that gets used for tournament weigh ins a couple times a month and I myself have used it for picnics with the family after fishing with he kids. I encourage guys who have never used it to go give it a try sometime and see what you think of the area, ramp, bathrooms and pavilion. If anyone has any idea for raising some money for these guys to willing to pitch in and help with labor needs just let me know.

    Appears this is owned by the Corps of Engineers. Do they not maintain it?
    I'll smoke just about anything (in my smoker)
    The fishing is always great. The catching varies.

    They don't maintain it. A group of locals have been doing the upkeep ever since I can remember.
    I will try and get a good picture of the flyer so people can see it. They use to do a hotdog and burger cookout at the little pavilion each year for a fundraiser. Beagleman even drove all the way up here for a burger at one of them. I will post more if they do something else like that again.

    Get me the address info. I will donate and if they have work days and give me a heads up ahead I would be willing to drive up and help.

    There will be days when the fishing is better than one's most optimistic forecast, others when it is far worse. Either is a gain over just staying home.

    Beagle you should have won a award for driving the farthest to that one. They did not know what to think when you told them you had never used the ramp or even been there before but still came all the way up here. Made a good excuse for you to come have lunch and shoot the breeze for the afternoon.
