The lake level is 563.46 and has raised one foot in the last 24-hours.  They have one generator running here now and they are running Table Rock Hard and have 5-spillway gates open and are holding it stable. Fish came up top for a long time this cloudy morning and a lot of fish were caught. I had seven rental boats out and everyone got checked by the Game Warden. Glad to see them on the job. It would not be a good time to keep over your limit, undersized fish or not have a license. Overall fishing is good with all kinds of fish biting. The Smallmouth Bass bite is exceprional. Use those shakey head worms with a very light slip weight. Many fish are in behind the buckbrush part way back in the creeks. Keep a top-water lure handy for surfacing fish. Come on down.  We will not charge you too much and your first boat stall is free here at Blackburns. You can launch here, park here and stay here.
