The lake level is 558.82 and has risen 8-inches in the last 24-hours with absolutely no generation for 2-1/2 days. Do not forget Norfork is here boys. They are still running Tablerock hard to protect Branson and the money. The White River at Newport is now 20-ft. and could be at 24. Fishing was good yesterday with many big fish being brought in. It was very busy here at Blackburns and the Easter egg Hunt was a big success. We like children here and have lots for them to do.  The lake surface temperature is still about 55 and does not have much chance of rising in the next few days. It is cool here today with highs in the 40's. Spring is very slow coming. Blackburns is nearly full and others are nearly empty is not only because of our high rate of return customers but the price. You can save $27/day or more on a 1-bedroom cabin and a minimum of over $130/week. For a two bedroom it is $40/day or $200/week. If you add on extras for your boat stall and trolling motors for pontoons you are looking at some seroius $. We are not here to see how much we can get by charging you.
