is riding allowed on this lake? it's just a couple miles north of where we live and looks like it would be a good place to ride.

Joe, <BR>I used to live about ten minutes from lake hodges, Back in the 90's, back then you could only fish on the lake, no swimming etc. But it has been a long time so maybe they changed their rules

With San Vicente closing down in the future for the dam raise, there have been several rumors about potential other lakes opening up for water contact. One of those was Hodges, but nothing has been decided on. The City of San Diego runs most the lakes in the area, but it seems like our recreational use of the lakes is a pretty low priority. You can fish on just about any of them, but water contact is limited to only 2 lakes in the entire county, San Vicente, and El Capitan. Right now El Cap is the ONLY one for water contact. San Vicente had an issue several months ago with the water being too low to launch, so we did not even get our 2 days/week during the winter. They regularly have Thu/Fri available during the winter, then add Sat/Sun during the summer. Latest news is that this summer will be only Sat/Sun for water contact at San V. The dude at El Cap told me at their lake, the schedule will probably stay the same this summer - Fri and Sun only for water contact. Needless to say, a pretty dismal schedule for all of us. <BR> <BR>Like I said, they talk about making water contact available at another lake (Lower Otay, Hodges, etc), but that is probably a few years down the road - mainly when San V closes down for the dam raise at the end of 2008. No telling what will happen.

I did not forget about the Lagoon, I was just refering to fresh water lakes. The Lagoon rocks! Can't wait for a summer kick-off party there. Great time last year. Great place to ride, just not on my boat.

Have you seen all the trees and junk in the water at Hodges? Better bring a spare prop or two... <BR> <BR>~J.
