||ALERT! As of 06/05/2015, water level at Boca and Stampede reservoirs is very low. Due to severe drought conditions several of our boat launching facilities may not be operable this year due to low water levels. Currently at Boca, Stampede, and Prosser the paved ramps are exposed above the water level. It is still possible to launch using a four wheel drive vehicle, but be prepared to back into the mud. Courtesy docks were not placed in the water this year due to low water levels.
