Norfork Lake fishing and lake conditions by Scuba Steve from Blackburns Resort and Boat rental (click here for comments)

The lake level is 552.88 and has risen about an inch in the last 24-hours. They did generate for a couple of hours this morning. That is good news since they have been running generators on that other lake in the ghost town hard. Norfok gets the left overs. Kind of like the veterans.  The lake is clearing a bit but it is taking a long time. It was very windy all day and evening yesterday. I had to tighten the cables on my dock 3-times and I have 4- 4,200# dead men and two shore cables holding it down. I am in a protected cove and the wind was swirling and gusty. It almost blew me off the dock. It was as bad as I have seen it continuous for long periods at a time. If you have not checked your dock you better get on down there. It has blown itself out now finally. It is not very warm now but I will go out and check conditions and try and catch a few fish. It is almost noon now and is just over 40. That ground hog was right.
