Laurance Lake and it's associated campground [Kinnikinnick], located on the north flank of Mt Hood near Parkdale, are CLOSED for 2018. They are doing some renovations on the dam/spillway system and will be drawing the lake down low enough it may cause some stress for fish - especially later in the summer. Native bull trout, cutthroat trout and wild rainbows all inhabit the waters there.
Wonder if this applies to the ospreys and bald eagles that make that area home? Always entertaining to have them arguing each other over hunt territories.

Keep the closure in mind for any trips you were planning for 2018!
