Fritch Fortress Boat Ramp Again Ready for Use

The Fritch Fortress boat ramp is back open at Lake Meredith, but not because the water level is rising. 

Maintenance workers extended the ramp to allow visitors to get boats into the water.

So far, the ramp has been extended more than 150 feet. 

The lake level hit a record low on September 7th at almost 53 feet.

Visitors are being urged to watch out for hazards below the surface, because of the low water level.

Sandbars, limbs, and other submerged obstacles are becoming more of a problem.
