FISHING -- The public access site on the southwest end of Sprague Lake in Adams County will be closed July 27-Sept. 7 for a construction project to improve boat-launching and parking facilities.
A contractor will be installing a floating dock for loading and unloading boats in the launch area, and making improvements to the parking lot consistent with the Americans with Disabilities Act, said Josh Harmon, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife northcentral region access manager.
The entrance to the access area off Danekas Road will be gated with a sign explaining the six-week closure, Harmon said.
Access to the lake and boat launching will continue to be provided for a small fee at:
- Sprague Lake Resort on the east end.
- Four Seasons Campground and Resort on the northwest side.
- An unimproved, privately owned, pay-to-launch access site off Danekas/Max Harder Road just east of the public access.
The improvements at the WDFW access site are funded through a 2013-15 Washington Recreation and Conservation Office Boating Facilities Program grant.
