The new news is that they started generating Norfork heavily and the lake has dropped 3-inches in the last 24-hours. The White River at Newport has not only cut the discharge but the gauge level is now 12+ feet and there is no reason for them to not drop the lake. They have done an excellent job holding it up. The bass condinue to bite top water early and Bink is really on the stripers deep with his spoon. People going out with him are catching some good fish everyday. The lake in general is in excellent condition and pretty clear with just a few floating logs. Be very careful and avoid being out there after dark. If you do, go out before dark and retrace your route on the way back. It looks to be a busy holiday so share the limited boat launch parking.
