It won't matter, they will ticket you. They just put up a blockade on the road and they put a Sheriff down the road where you can't see him. Once you drive around the barricade you have broken the law. I did this at Bartlett once and the Sheriff wrote about 25 of us a ticket, for failure to follow a traffic sign, all at the same time. I was able to defeat mine in court over a procedural issue though. It is very easy to shut-down all the AZ lakes... call the Tonto Ranger District, it takes about 20 seconds and you will see what I mean. I personally think we are SCREWED here in AZ!

I can appreciate your enthusiasm. But some thing smells fishy *chuckle. I looked all over the az boating website and associated national websites and there is no mention of a permanent shutdown. In fact I found some evidence that it will be running strong into 2016.

I see now the issue relates to the federal shutdown and all national forests. If there is a shutdown (which by the way it was just postponed) there's no way that the house, congress and the president will let it fo on for that long at all. This will clear up more quickly than the weather!

I just got my boat back from the detailers and we might go to tomorrow if someone else wants to go. Most likely go all day. Most of the regulars are either out of town or on another boat... 480-226-3629 text is fine...

Long story... no one in town... sorry... Call Melanie at Century Marine, she should have some good names. There is a young guy named Dustin who does an excellent job.

Dustin 480-430-1144. He is in his early 20's and seems a little weird, but he can detail the crap out of boats and cars. He definitely knows his stuff and will do a great job. Tell him Ryan Bailey sent you.

Fractured Fiberglass in Mesa also does an excellent job.

Thanks, that will get me started.

What lake do you normally go to? We usually go to Saguaro. 24' white & yellow Sea Ray.

Sam, I may be up for it. You still go to Bartlett? What time do you get there? I think the Marina ramp may be the only one open since the lake is so low

Eric,
I will give you a call tomorrow. It doesn't look good for Bartlett. I talked to SRP this morning and they said that they will continue to drain it until May 2. The chances of it coming back up before next year are virtually none according to Mark at SRP. He said that they had zero winter run-off this year.

To me it sounded like they had a management issue and let more water out than they were suppose to, but were "well within protocol".

I didn't even think about the water level. Last week we saw a boat collision. Lots of boats in a very small area.

Maybe we will head up to Apache.

This weekend (Memorial Day) has historically been the worst weekend of the year. Over the last five years I have several years where we went every Saturday of the year, with the rest missing less than 10 Saturdays easily. Memorial Day Weekend has been the worst weekend of the year. In fact it has gotten so bad that we aren't even going this weekend. We are going canyoneering instead.

I used my phone for GPS. While up there. Once I got cell service on the way back, I turned off airplane mode and the emails, voicemails, and text messages rolled in. This was on of the emails I replied to. BTW I'm in for tomorrow! What time?

Gotta agree with you on that Sam. Powell is one of the best places to disconnect from the rest of the world and relax. Think of it, as a Corona commercial "miles away from the ordinary"

hahaha...to each his own. some people relax by watching their favorite team play.
When you're there for a week in the middle of nowhere it's the nostalgia of being able to connect up and see a game.
When we go to the dunes we project games on the sides of toyhaulers at night. it's fun to just be able to.

I would definitely post a lot more on this site if I didn't have to reset my password every time I wanted to log in. . .

On another note I am down for riding all winter. My boat or somebody else's. Would anyone like an invite when I go (Saguaro Lake) ???
If anyone needs a third I am a well qualified driver and I pitch in for gas/clean up.

Welcome to the forum. You should also label your availability(such as days), lake locations you're nearby, etc..

The days vary, Monday, Wednesday, Friday some times weekends. Any Phoenix area lake is fine.

Thanks for the welcome. I do prefer longer days for a couple pulls since it is a drive for me.

Thanks again WW.

Just curious if anyone has been to Bartlett recently? I see SRP lists Bartlett at 37% full and the Jojoba ramp is in 1 ft of water. Ouch.

DC - It's the first ramp you see when you enter from Bartlett Dam Rd into the main parking lot. There's a ranger/police station to the left and a private marina to the right (as you're looking at the lake).
