What’s your normal elevation and what prop do you use there?

We go from 5280 - 8500’ (sometimes higher) at home, so Powell is low elevation for us. Ive never changed props (although I probably should above about 7500’).

And tons of patience. Only one launch open... for now.... Saw a video on Instagram of miles of parked trucks and trailers on the side of the road leading up to it. Bummer for sure.

One launch at each end. And they are renovating the old stateline ramp. We will be ok to launch small boats. At least through the summer. 
 

And FWIW, Halls closed yesterday. Bullfrog and Wahweap have a launch open.

Cool. Bet the line is shorter since the website says they are closed. :rockon:

It is a bit of a mess. We launched July 1 at Bullfrog. It was 1.5 miles from the launch ramp to the parking lot.

Wahweap is open.  The ramp is at the end of the concrete, but there are metal grates that go another 60 horizontal feet into the water.    Doing the math, launching a 60 foot houseboat is getting pretty sketchy, so the last notice I saw said that launching and retreiving houseboats is going to be banned this weekend.  Launching our baby wakeboats is not a problem.  I would probably not trust the metal grates to 2WD, however.
