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

The lake level is 573.87 and is exactly what it was at this time yesterday. They are generating just enough to keep all of the area lakes stable while dropping the level at Newport very quickly and reducing the amount of discharge. The level there is now at 19-feet and it should be at 24 if they were managing things correctly. We have not received any rain for several days but are to get some today and Sunday. Hold and hope and keep everyone one big rain away from problems. At least the levels are high enough where it takes a lot of water to raise the lake very much. The bowl gets wider and bigger and the level increases. The water from the Mississippi and Missouri is coming no matter what they do to the little White River. It is policy to make everyone miserable at the same time except Branson. Bass fishing, walleye, crappie and striper fishing are all fair with some good fish being caught everyday.  Mostly early and late. Stripers have moved deeper as usual for the summer and are in about 60-feet near the bottom. Many being caught are 10-lbs. or smaller and they do not live coming up from that deep.  They may swim away but cannot go down. Venting does not work as others say. Dock floors and big stringers full of dead 10-lb. stripers are not impressive. The surface temperature was just above 80 in Blackburns creek last evening and a little lower than that on the main lake and the water looks clear from the surface.
