Mosquito Lake Boat Ramps Closed

The hot dry weather has effected a lot of things this summer, including the lakes and reservoirs.  The water levels at Mosquito Lake, the 7,850 acre lake located in Trumbull county, have dropped 3.5 feet below summer pool.  Due to the low water conditions the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers have closed the ramps at State Routes 88 and 305.  Boaters are able to use the  ramps in the State Park for now.
