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

The lake level is 551.17 and rising very slowly with no generation. It is raining now but should be nice for the rest of the weekend. I went out about 3:pm yesterday and checked out some new places. I will be able to fish places that were camped on now that the brush pile moochers are gone and so will Blackburns customers.  Do they not have crappie in Kansas? I went to the first place and caught one crappie, a bass and several large bluegill. Left there and moved to brush just around a main lake point and found big ones. I caught several and released all but the two biggest ones for the pond. Pictures to follow. The numbers of fish on the brush are increasing daily. That is a good sign. I used both the Bink's spoon and grub and minnow and caught about equal amounts on both. It was too windy for slip float fishing. Will try to get in a little fishing in between showers today. Very busy here now with people taking advantage of our low prices on boats and cabins and a free boat stall.  Several boats are rented and we have just a few cabins open. That is the way we like it. All of the money goes for improvements on the resort. Come on down. We will not charge you too much.
