This is the original boat ramp from the 1950's before the lake was raised.
 
Good times !!

Really not all that different now. That ramp isn't very usable.
Can't use the ramps now either Beat a Dead Horse Beat a Dead Horse

Love fishing! It's my drug!


It's useable, we pitched in that year to get it extended. Then 2 weeks later, the flood came in!

12, 7oz---PB...Good fishing to you!!!!


I used it originally and once I returned to Texas after being gone 25 years....lol.  If I remember correctly there used to be a small fishing boat rental there or at Lavonia. That's been a while back.

Lake changed a lot once they raised the water level, however......But, she still rocks and rolls when the wind is high from the south......However, I believe the fishing for cats and crappie is better after raising the water lever although crappie was good before.  Don't remember there being so many rough fish in the original level......Buffalo and Drum in particular.

Tim,

Are the line of trees in the top picture now a line of brush piles under water?  Do you know where that beach is?

Yep Terry, that's Avalon.
Those trees are long gone.  That would be almost 70 years ago.  icon_mrgreen  But I like the way you think.
The lake was raised in December 1975, so that would be about 40+ years ago.
There are a few stumps around the lake at around the 18' mark, which is the old shoreline from the lake at 472 Pool. (Thanks to Jerry Hancock for that tidbit)
Only winter readers of the LLFF get this kind of info.  icon_cool

I remember that ramp... days started out like glass and ended with strong north west winds . We were taking on water from waves crashing the back of boat
