Litchfield Swimming

Recommended Posts

My daughter has a Softball Tourney in Litch this weekend. Is there anywhere near there to take the Kids swimming between games?

Not sure what Lake Ripley is like for swimming right there in Litchfield. Might be an option.

I haven't been to Ripley in the summer for years -- probably since like 1988 or something. But they used to have a beach on the east side. Probably still do. It was a fairly large park, I think there's an old military tank or helicopter there, can't remember which. The water was fairly clean too, from what I remember -- remember seeing sunfish swimming around all over. I was 10 though...so take it with a grain of salt smile.gif

Highway 22. South of Hwy 12.

there is still a swimming beach there. The lake does get very weedy for about a month more in the summer, but they eventually go down. dont know how it is out there now, but a few weeks ago my grandpa said it was weedy. he lives on washington usually fishes the local lakes. i would imagine that the swimming area may still be fine. with all the kids in litchfield i would say its probably kept up pretty nice.

Took the kids swimming there on Sat. afternoon between games. Beach was great, Their was even an ice cream truck that came by. And they played on the park for awhile. Litchfield City should be complimented for the park they have there.

      +1 on the trim tab being the issue.

      Did you do anything to the lower unit? Trim tab might need adjusting.

      Another weekend is in the books. The guys in the cabins did all right but the fishing did slow. maybe due to the water getting stirred up from the winds and the cold front that moved through.. today Monday looks like its shaping up to be a beautiful day. ken is here for a couple days and scott and his parents are coming tomorrow for a day or two. The kids will be coming for the holiday weekends so I guess I better get the boat in the water this week. I held off due to the low water but the park was able to jump through some hoops and dig out the channel so I think I'm ok.  The access was crazy busy yesterday and I still have no clue where they all come from. I guess its just a combination of  other resorts and people with cabins with in 100 mile radius.

      Have not been here in sometime. Thought this would be a good opportunity to get back on here. Got out for the C season, arriving just before sunrise  and the birds were already on the ground. Started with an aggressive calling sequence "Purr into a loud Yelp" there were birds North and West of my location responding. This guy decided to take a look about 30 minutes later. He got within 5 feet of my blind full strut. Something I have never heard before he started to hiss at the decoy.  Not a great shot at that range but sealed the deal.

      Very nice! I was kicking myself real hard this weekend for forgetting my fish finder at home. I did manage to bring this smallie in, but they were tough to pattern for me and this was the only noteworthy fish of the weekend. Hope the water temps come up and I can get back next weekend!

      Nice boat Raven! I think I saw you out buzzing around in Wakemup this weekend!
