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

The lake level is 562.62 and is stable for the last 24-hrs with one generator running. I am not saying we are too high but we are too high for this time of year and they will not allow for a cushion for a big rain. Let more water out boys.  The lake is actually in good condition and the creeks and main lake are both clearing. The surface temperature in Blackburns Creek is 64 drgrees as of 6:pm this evening. I am not much for predictions, because most of the people making them have not been here long enough to do so, but with the weather forecast and what is happening now, the top- water bite is ready to start in earnest. Get in your position before sunrise and be ready with your spook or spitin image. Use a soft plastic before then. A good top-water fisherman can lure them up from several feet down before they break the surface. It looks like there will be no spring and go directly to summer. I do not try to lure you here to make money and do not often do this but this is the time to get here. Good things are about to happen. If you do not want to pay too much better reserve at Blackburns resort and Boat rental Now. Fun times are here. You can park here, launch here and have a free boat stall. 870-492-5115
