    We always launched off the beach in by the Ryton river mouth.

    But is not that easy unless you have a tractor. (i assume you are still allowed to access the lake at that point.

    Munsey, its a lake you really need to watch the weather mate, goes from flat arse calm to real pooze in the blink of an eye.

    Especially if you hav to go thru the "neck" in the middle of the lake.

    @mikee , I've always known that ryton bay was a place you could launch , but I've googled and searched but there is nothing to say there is still access . I always thought there was a proper ramp somewhere . Don't want to tow boat up there to find out I can't launch my boat . Especially my glass boat

    My uncle had a Bus Batch in the Ryton from early 1980s right thru to late 90s. Fishing was always best in the 0-40m depth along the lake edge. We had a few "frights" when the wind changed suddenly.

    Found this
    Public Access | Glenthorne
    and this

    Well done Munsey.
    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!
