Had a buddy that put in at the last ramp down on the lower Cowlitz(Kelso) yesterday at low slack and he said the high water earlier in the year pushed a bunch of silt down filling in the boat ramp and surrounding areas. He said there was only about 1 foot of clearance going out. He said he did not feel comfortable running his pump as it was sucking up silt. Just wanted to make everyone aware since we have some negative tides coming up that might make it difficult if not impossible to launch or trailer your boat. You may want to consider the Ranier ramp as an alternative.
