Lake Mead officials are asking boaters to utilize an alternative launch ramp.
Because of a narrow channel near the main launch ramp at Echo Bay, officials request boaters use the low-water launch ramp.
The main launch ramp is still open, but navigation is difficult because docks and anchors from the former marina have shifted with changing water levels, creating a very narrow channel. Boaters who launch from the low-water area will have an easier time navigating into the Overton Arm.
The courtesy dock at the main ramp has been relocated to the low-water area for boater safety and convenience.
