Report: I live 2 miles from Lake Meredith in the Texas panhandle and it is worth the 3 1/2 hour trip to travel to Lake Foss. The area is great, camping facilities are great, fishing is great and we met some very nice people.

Report: Several weeks ago (early July 2002) I took my deep vee hull outdrive launch to Fosse because the local lake (Quartz Mountain) was too shallow to launch it. I found that the trip time of 80 min rather than 25 minutes, was worth it, because the lake was deep and easily launchable. It was a weekday Summer evening: we found that the floating restaurant by the marina, is open only thurs through saturday, so after the pleasant skiing/tubing with a party of four in pleasant surroundings, we headed for Elk City, where the Mexican restaurant was very welcoming, despite our arrival just 15 minutes before nominal closing time. This was a 20 minute drive from Foss. I recommend the Foss - it is a reservoir - but it does not look artificial - it is pleasant - and free!

Report: My wife and I went up to Foss Lake for the new year weedend of 2001 and 2002. We were planning on fishing in the heated fishing dock. It has alwayws been open in the past years in the winter time. We bought minnows and other items for this occasion. When we arrived the fishing dock was locked up. I enquired at the floating cafe to see if it could be un-locked so we could fish. We were informed it was locked up for the season. They advertise that they have a heated fishing dock that is open in the winter time. So a word to the wise......don't go to Foss Lake to do any indoor fishing.
