    Any news on when it might open? I know the Marina and snack bar still needed to be built, but is there a time frame? Looks like October is out unless things happen quick.

    Kellen maybe we can have a page just for San V. on update until the lake opens, like they used to have for DV?

    You know they're going to put off opening for fishing as long as possible, maybe forever.........

    I haven't heard a timeframe. But I have said all along I don't think it opens this year. I have no idea where the October rumor came from? I even heard people talking about there being a possibility the the San Diego Team Open was going to be held there this year (would've been a couple weeks ago). Not sure where that stuff is coming from.

    Everything I've heard from sources in the know is really, really stressing that there is no opening date scheduled. They're basically going to announce an opening date a month or so before hand, and thats as much notice as there is going to be.

    In my view they are stressing as they know what's going to happen. Its going to be a zoo and they will not be able to handle it without extra workers for the people wanting to fish and ski. Not to mention the line of boats going down Moreno Road for weeks waiting for the chance to get in. Thet will need special guidelines unless they do a soft opening.

    The small details of repairs and such weem very small compared to what they be encountering with the crowds. Here is a photo of the water level as a week ago. It is way the hell up right now!!

    Zero shore access- no where to put a boat on shore or shore access to fish.

    Hope it opens in the near future. Loved fishing there as a teen some 20 years ago. PB bass and blue gill came out of there!

    From the looks of that pic an El Nino could put it over the spillway! What a waste of water that would be!

    There is no estimated opening date at this time.

    They concession is "almost" done from what I could see (but since I don't have construction insight I can't be sure). The marina (as in launch facilities) have a bit of a way to go. No, I will not go into detail :)

    CWA is the current entity that WAS putting water in, they are currently holding it to study the dam at this water level.

    So wrong I don't even know where to start. We want it open as soon as it is ready and safe for public use.

    This.

    Stressing? Nope, not really. Know what's going to happen? Yup, we gots plans :)

    Extra employees on hand? possibly, but we have had the line down to and along Moreno in the past. Mostly the Highway Patrol gets a bit irked at us when that happens but most people seem to be able to control themselves in an orderly fashion when that happens.

    There will be special guidelines to control access, as far as I know (and things can change) there will be no 'soft' opening..

    Yeah :( That's one of the special guidelines so far (as I have mentioned in other posts in regards to safety reasons).

    At least it would be CWA's waste and not ours! Oh wait, it's basically still all our water. Yes, that would really be bad for PR if that were to happen. I have no idea what CWA's water plans are, but I really hope they are taking into account the El Nino reports.

    Summary of what is most likely beyond " there is no estimated opening date at this time":
    1-The opening date will be highly advertised at least 4-6 weeks prior to opening
    2-Entry into the marina area will be restricted
    3-We will most likely be using Ticketmaster
    4-There will be no shore access
    5-There will be a press release with details when it is decided to be released

    Lately the weird phone calls are always in regards to SV from: "Hey my brother told me SV opens tomorrow!" to ")@#*$@#&( how is <insert random tournament/ club/ media name/ ???> getting early access/ a day to themselves/ ???"

    Awesome, no shore access. That eliminates me and many other taxpayers.

    Float tube is not shore fishing, but who knows, they may group you in with us lower class users.

    It's not that we are trying to exclude people but really there is NO Shore access. The entire shoreline at the marina is constantly in a state of collapse because of the 'new' water levels and thus, not safe for the public (or anyone for that matter). This won't change for awhile as there are no plans to keep the water level at a constant level. There are also no boat beaching spots anywhere along the shore right now.

    Can't say for absolute sure, but I don't see why not as long as there is parking for the cars. Parking spots may be the only limit with these.

    The fees are determined by the ticket coast. Currently we are only planning on selling the launch permits only through Ticketmaster since the number of boat launches are what we need to regulate. So about 1/3 of the fees that a $20 Barrett ticket costs? What you should be worrying about is getting through to Ticketmaster when they go on sale and staying connected long enough to purchase the ticket. Or their system crashing.....mid-purchase.

    Of course, everything I say now is subject to change. Something may come up and change what has been determined.

    If they allowed the line to enter the parking area that would solve that problem I'd think.

    On the use of Ticketmaster: there really is no other way to make the tickets accessible to a wide variety of people (those with and without computer access) in a fair and equitable manner. Pretty much every online reservation system I have read up about has both those who rave and those who rant; we can't please everyone.
