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

The lake level is 556.55 and has risen 11-inches in the last 24-hours with about 5-hours of generation. We have received 2.3 inches of total rain yesterday and today and the creeks are running hard and it is still raining. It is heading for 558 even if they leave the generators on but they will not. The creeks were lightening up a bit in color but that has all changed now and is worse than it was. There is debris in the lake and I am going down to move my dock in now. I did not go fishing yesterday.  The lake is not in bad condition but is about 8-feet higher that it should be going into the spring.
