OSAGE COUNTY, Oklahoma -

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is closing two boat ramps and adding new buoys on the west side of Skiatook Lake in Osage County.

The Corps says lake is too low for boats to launch at Twin Points and Hominy Landing.

The lake's manager hopes the weather cooperates so the ramps can re-open by the spring and summer boating season.

"Despite the drought, we are looking forward to a good year for fishing and most of the lake continues to be sufficiently deep for a full range of boating and water recreation," said Lee Perry, Skiatook Lake Manager.

"Depending on levels of rainfall, the two ramps in question may also re-open later in the spring or summer."

The Corps says low lake levels are the result of drought conditions and below normal inflows into the watershed above Skiatook Lake. These weather patterns have been in effect since 2010, with little relief.
