Silver Lake boat ramp closed to trailer use
VANCOUVER--The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife boat ramp at Silver Lake in Cowlitz County has been closed for launching boats on trailers.
The ramp was closed for safety reasons since the recent breach in the lake's dam occurred.
The access site's parking lot remains open and canoes, car-top boats and other smaller vessels still can be launched at the site.
The ramp closure for trailers likely will remain in effect through the summer.
