Amber Lake Project 2021

To quote Tennessee Ernie Ford:

“You load sixteen tons and what do you get?  Another day older and deeper in debt.”

On Monday, May 24, 2021 a work crew comprised of Dan Dzieken from WDFW, four members of the Spokane Fly Fishers and four IEFFC members spread and compacted 16 tons of crushed rock at the Amber Lake boat launch.  In addition, a large rock that was in the water alongside the launch was moved so there will be less of a chance of hitting it while launching or taking out.

The IEFFC members involved were Jerry McBride, John Bennett, Guy Gregory and Lee Funkhouser.

The IEFFC and SFF split the cost of the crushed rock and the rental of the plate compactor and IEFFC provided donuts and coffee for breaktime and also provided lunch for the crew.

We originally thought the project would take four hours to complete, but the crew was able to finish it in two hours.

And to answer Tennessee Ernie Ford’s question, we got a much improved boat launch at Amber Lake!!
