Hey man, that ship has sailed. Bullards has a facebook page for goodness sake. It's no secret. And as much as it can suck there on a Saturday in August (and I know, it can) where 25 boats are going up and down the canyon area in the back of the lake, it was awesome on Saturday. Like a midweek bluebird powder day in April... great conditions and nobody there.

Should've taken a pic of dark day launch too... the dock is pulled out and the "island" that forms behind the launch is now an 8' tall peninsula. Luckily the launch was really mellow so you could go in cockeyed to get a straight shot out.

Damn it I was all set to go that day to Bullards when the tow vehicle had to be taken elsewhere.... Hopefully next weekend is just as warm

BTW I think i might have to side with Fernando... The internet killed weekends on that lake, just 5 years ago it wasn't as popular as it was this summer.That's why i ride week days or post labor day weekends.

And now they are going to start charing to launch there......F that.

What's the deal with the launch fee?

Last i heard its still up in the air how much they are going to charge but they will, along with mussel inspections that you must pay for yourself. They said they are thinking of putting a tag of some sort on the boat that says it passed inspection, but is voided if you take your boat to another lake, like somebody is suppose to rip the tag off. Not sure how they will enforce that but at least they are taking proper precautions. Would be a shame for the ecosystem of this beautiful lake to be taken over. And maybe the extra fees will scare away the out of towners

Wow, so you made me look. I guess that's what the "detour" is about at the top of the dark day ramp...

Mussel inspection at New Bullards Bar?
Comments 1

By Rob Young/Appeal-Democrat

Q: The July 27 minutes of the Yuba County Water Agency refer to the installation of kiosks at Dark Day and Cottage Creek marinas on New Bullards Bar Reservoir for inspection of boats for quagga and zebra mussels.

As a recreational boater, I'm concerned that a very popular lake is going to become inaccessible due to overreaction or a desire to make more money from the public. Could you help us out by bringing more light on this project and how much public comment will be accepted, or is this a done deal?

A: As you may have noticed, inspection kiosks and gates are under construction at both marinas.

Peter Wade, the YCWA's assistant power systems manager, said the state Department of Fish and Game is requiring his agency to have a plan in place to inspect for mussels and keep them from spreading to Northern California. But no start date has been determined and the YWCA board is waiting for a cost study to be completed before voting on the matter, he said.

Wade did not estimate how much the inspection fee might be.

A board vote on the matter has not been scheduled. Once a vote is taken, the public will have at least two chances to comment at regular board meetings, which happen on the second and fourth Tuesday of the month. If there's enough interest, a special meeting will be held, he said.

So, mussel inspections at New Bullard's Bar may not be a done deal, but the installation of kiosks and gates tells you a lot.

Does anyone really want to see the reservoir become "mussel-bound?" Not likely.

A University of California summit on mussel control for lake and reservoir operators will be held Oct. 21-22 at the Lions Gate Hotel & Cottage Suites at 3410 Westover St., Sacramento. For information, call Heidi C. O'Guinn at 752-3932.

Eh..... every body of water is busier than they were 5 years ago. People want to get out on the water with their families. The best thing that can happen to these lakes is for more people to visit sites like this. At least then people would learn some boating ettiquite and figure out why the wakeboarders are yelling at them as they whip their kids back and forth through the only smooth water on a lake.

If you want the place to yourself, then get out midweek or early morning. By mid day most lakes are done anyway. Bullards is beautiful. Enjoy and let others enjoy.
