The lake level is 552.67 and rising slowly with no generation at all. Surface temperature was 67 this morning and the fish were biting. Tom Kelly caught some very nice bass last evening and I caught crappie, bass and bluegill. One day they are biting at one place and the next nothing. I am rotating about five different places and am catching fish every day. One day the red meat fish are in Blackburns cove early morning and the next around Mallard point. They are not moving very far. It was 70 degrees yesterday afternoon with almost no wind. Fishing conditions were very good and the lake seemed to be clearing a bit. You could see your lure down about 7-feet. Mike and James are leaving today and it is a good thing. Norfork lake will run out of fish if they stay any longer. I like to see all of these white bass caught. They are not stocked and it leaves more shad for the good fish. The game and fish are replentishing brush piles and that is very good. The ones with the blue signs have not had any improvements for some time. It is good to have wildlife biologists that really care about the lake and are willing to work. Many big bass, crappie and a few walleye are in open water with the white bass and hybrids. It is hard to tell what you will catch. The brush that I am fishing are producing about 4 big crappie, 3 or 4 nice bluegill and a couple of bass in about two hours of fishing every day. I do not kill fish unless they are taken out of deep water or deep hooked. That is why I do not fish water much deeper that 30-feet. None of the brush crappie are in over 25-feet anyway and they are only down about 10-feet. Several boats were out enjoying the nice weather yesterday but it is windy with a cold front moving in this afternoon with temperatures falling into the 40's for tomorrow.  Come on down to Blackburns. We will not charge you too much and are open all year.
