CARLYLE LAKE – The Crappie Masters Tournament Trail in coordination with the FishHouse Restaurant will be hosting a crappie tournament on Saturday, October 14 and Sunday October 15 at the Dam East Boat Ramp. To accommodate the event and provide public safety and support, the Dam East Boat Ramp and High Water Ramp will be temporarily closed for public boat launching from Friday, October 13, through Sunday, October 15, 2017.  During this timeframe, visitors should use the boat ramps located at the Dam West and Coles Creek Recreation Areas.  In addition, the east portion of the Saddle Dam II Roadway and the south portion of the Dam East Recreation Area road (formerly South Shore) will be closed from 3 p.m. until 7 p.m. to provide public safety during a 5K race.  During this timeframe all traffic must access the area from the west through the McNair entrance.
