Lake Morena Fishing Report

Lake Morena Fishing Report

by Lake Morena Staff

The lower boat launch is open. However the dry conditions last year have caused water levels to drop rapidly. Watch for submerged obstacles in the lake.

All vessels must pass a Quagga Mussel (clean, drained and dry) prior to launch. An $8 launch fee is required for all private vessels.
