Title a little misleading. Plenty of ramps still available as of yesterday.

I would imagine At the rate it is being fished, the lake will be closed.

Sounds like it's all closing shortly. Pleasure Cove just announced on Lake Berryessa News on Facebook and Steele last night.

This was posted by Norcal Guides & Sportsmans Association Friday nite on their Facebook:

Lake Berryessa is closing tomorrow we are told due to COVID-19 due to the amount of traffic on water and lack of social distancing. Markley Cove Marina & some campgrounds at the lake have advised people to be out of the areas by tomorrow afternoon. Another lake gone! We will post official sheet if BOR RELEASES IT TOMRROW

What’s next? Almost a full shut down across the entire north state!

If the order is coming from the Napa County Health Director as stated by the Pleasure Cove management, it's only a matter of days before the entire lake will be down.

All concessions are suspended effective close of business April 4th, 2020. Lodging and camping will be curtailed to be effective April 6th, 2020. BOR adopted the updated Napa County Shelter in Place Order that was updated on April 2nd, 2020. Violation of the order is a misdemeanor punishable by a fine and/or imprisonment.
Just passing along the information that I received this morning. Stay safe and be vigilant.

Honestly it was crowded Friday, but most of the fishing boats had 1-3 people on them. I went with my son Friday never got within 200 yds of anyone. It’s not like we all show up and leave at the exact same time so the parking lot can be deceiving at well. But on the delta and Berry I saw multiple speed boats/wake boats with a boatload of people. Even one weds on the delta with 6 people who CLEARLY had little chance of being in the same family (I do reserve .1% chance there were mixed raced multiple adoption going on but unlikely). Those are the folks who are ruining it for everyone.

Last day on berry today. Wet windy and the fish where biting! Well looks like it’s gonna be a good spawn. The bright side guys I guess is all these lakes with no pressure will be wide open when we get to back on them.
