Hello Pat and fellow fisher people, I hope you are all well.
As some of you know the Saratoga Springs Marina is closed due to construction. We apologize to those who did not know and may have wasted their precious time and fuel to only find our boat ramp closed off. Unfortunately it is impossible to inform everyone of this closure.
The ramp will be closed for approximately the next 30 days in order to dredge the marina 4' deeper. Our goal is to have the bottom of the marina be at an elevation of 4481'. Included in this scope of work is to also dredge a channel almost a half mile out in to the lake to assure water is always in the marina. This underwater 'canal' is to
be 12' wide and also 4' deeper than the current lake bottom.
For your patience with this project, you will be rewarded with a new 'structure' in the lake that fish should find very enticing, both while ice and regular fishing.
Both of these dredging projects are expected to be completed by early to the mid part of May, just in time for Utah Lake to produce hot fishing for the rest of the season.
You will also find a new pump house being built in the inside northwest corner of the marina. The pumps will take water out of the lake to be used as secondary water for the south half of Saratoga Springs.
Unprecedented growth in this part of Utah County is driving this project.
We will try to wrap this project up as quickly as possible so you can all get your hooks back in the water. Our marina is very busy as we do not charge an entrance fee to fish or to just relax in this City property. However,we do charge to launch a boat.
The Saratoga Springs Marina has flush toilets and a fish cleaning station. Our guys work really hard to maintain these facilities for you to enjoy but we could really use your help.
If you see someone putting rocks in YOUR fish grinder or vandalising YOUR restrooms, please put a carp under their car seat while they are not looking.
" It's all fun and games until someone loses an 'eye'".
