Hodges is a great place to sail. Best time is after 11am in the summer time. This time of year the winds tend to be light, but best in the pm and in changing weather.
The lake is open Wed, Sat, and Sun. Kayaks are $2. If you are launching by cart go to the old ramp (red line) at #1 above and launch right from the beach or dock. If space is available you can park right there on the old ramp near the dock (pictured)
If not, the large parking lot near by (yellow circle) is best. If you launch by trailer, follow the green line to the end of the road and find the large ramp (seen below in front of the AI). Parking is a bit more of a walk though.
Typically, your two best areas for sailing are close to the large launch ramp -- flat water and decent wind; or up toward the dam past the project on your right where the old wind surfing area is.
You never know what will show up at Hodges....
Hope to see you there!
