Will the roads leading to popular fishing locations be accessible in time for the official season opening weekend? That's the plan according to Deschutes County and the Oregon Department of Transportation.  Peter Murphy is the Public Information Officer for ODOT. He says the County asked for help after one of their snow blowers broke down: "With fishing season coming open and I saw some resorts up there getting ready to open up as well and they need to have Century Drive, the Cascade Lakes Highway cleared off and apparently Deschutes County asked us for help this year and we were happy to provide it. And up there with road graders, bull dozers, and plows getting those roads ready for people to get up there and enjoy it this spring." Murphy says both the County and ODOT will work together in an effort to reach Elk Lake and Lava Lake both by the fishing season's opening weekend, which is April 23rd.
