    Geist Reservoir

    What does it cost to launch your boat from the Olio Road ramp? Thanks!

    Last year it was 11 until memorial day then it went to 27 I believe. They have raised it before memorial day before.

    Last year it was $12 all during the week and $27 on the weekends. If u come off the water early in the summer before noon u get half your fee back. Unless u have some tourney their i don't fish the weekends ever!!

    Re: Geist Reservoir

    Why would you ever pay $27 to launch a boat? wow...anything more than $5 is just plain stupid.

    Re: Geist Reservoir

    Well the fact is the the homeowners on the lake don't want fisherman their. I know several people that live on the lake and they told me this, it's a private lake, not managed by dnr, so they make their own rules. And the houses on the lake are arguably the nicest homes in Indianapolis, and they want their own water for pleasure..........But if you live near it's close, a good fishery, and put it this way on tuesday nights they have a tourney from 5-9 and they average 50 plus boats a week! Good payout for only a 1500 achre impoundment.

    Re: Geist Reservoir

    WOW..not one of these replies was correct.

    It is $11 to launch your boat anytime through the week. On the weekends...it is $27 and if you get your boat out by 1100 am...you get $15 back. Never a problem, on the weekends the pleasure crafts all get out there by noon and you wouldnt want to be out there anyway.

    I was there yesterday and the fees are posted on a sign as you leave the ramp.

    I live 8 miles from Morse and it's the same price. Why would I pay this? When gas was crazy I could pay $27 or drive 1 hour plus to go to another lake and spend $60 plus in gas pulling my pontoon. I just had a hard time justifying paying that much for gas. If the gas says where it's at I'll go elsewhere.

    i understand more with the pontoon, while going out to have fun with family and friends. i wouldnt pay $27 to fish cuz quite frankly, i can fish in my own back yard for free. as far as fishing, there is always another place to go. i can see where thats not true with a pleasure boat.
