Nope open 24 hours until sept 15th when they close at sunset. To be there after sunset you have to be actively fishing. Everyone will need a license. Trust me the man checks. The cost is $3 dollars weekdays and $4 weekends to get in. Usually about an hour before sunset they close the gate and then you only have to pay $1 to get in through little slot machine that takes your money by the gate.
Beware, they start charging at 5AM on weekends. got there at 5:15 one sunday and the lady asked for 12 big ones (had my kids with me.) Had to leave cuz I only had 2 dollars till the bank opened at 9am. Got the kids up at 4am, made lunches, etc.... all for nuttin'. The sign clearly says they open at 6am, but it seems they get there earlier on the weekends to take advantage of the early risers.
Remember guys don't give up on spsp when they close the gates at sunset during the fall. The fall run is good there and right before susnset is when you will most likely catch that monster. I wait until the ranger comes over to tell me to leave when they close at sunset.
