Scotts Run Lake is scheduled for dam repairs late 2018. This work will require a 6-foot drawdown of the lake. Recreational opportunities will be impacted for the duration of the drawdown. Precise timing is unavailable at this time, however, work is authorized to begin as soon as mid-August and must be completed by October 15th, 2018. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we make necessary improvements to your French Creek State Park.
I was there yesterday and the water was down about 2 ft from normal pool. The DCNR officer I spoke to said it would be drawn down about 6 ft total and from what he was told there would not be a fall trout stocking.
It generally takes a long time for the mud to harden... and even then there may be spots that will suck you down! I lost one of my hip boots up at Locust Lake one year during a drawdown. Mud was dry, cracked looking and mostly OK but sank to mid thigh at one spot... fortunately Pop was there to pull me out otherwise I'd be a fossil....
DO NOT GO SOLO
