JUST IN TIME FOR THE FOURTH: The lake is up, City Beach is looking better and more boat ramps are open. At left, a photo at City Beach shows conditions before the deluge of rain Sunday. At right, with the lake up 6.7 feet, there’s actually water at the beach. City boat ramp, next to the Pearl Street bridge over Lake Granbury, is back in business. The City Beach ramp is also open next to the Granbury Resort Conference Center. The Brazos River Authority has opened the public boat ramps at deCordova dam park and Rough Creek park. Ramps at Hunter Park and Thorp Spring remain closed. Lake rangers are repairing channel marker buoys and expect to have the 108 markers realigned from the dam to Arrowhead Shores by the holiday weekend. Boaters are advised to use caution as submerged hazards may not be visible. At Carey and Sons Marine the phones are ringing off the wall. Seems everyone wants to get their boat out for the holiday. Romney Carey said people are ready to trailer their boats. “We sold a lot of boats on this lake without trailers. Now a lot of people want to get their boats out of the dock and on a trailer,” he said. Due to the low lake, many boats have been hanging in docks with no water beneath.
