Wouldn't think Lookout would be too bad....no marinas on the lake. Also heard today the water is much lower than normal. There is a launch ramp in Iredell and Catawba county near the dam. My recollection is the Catawba side is easier...not as steep.
Thanks for the info guys. I was thinking that the lake would have less boat traffic and never been there so I might give it a shot. Also looking at another spot near the Va line so it might be a 2 lake day if this old body can handle it.
