The lake level is 558.71 and has risen 7-1/2 inches in the last 24-hours with little generation and has risen 5-feet in the last 5-days. The creeks are brown from the heavy runoff most of the way out to the main lake. The main lake is stained a little green but still in good shape. I have had recent changes of thought about brown water.  I used to say fish past the brown water where it turns more clear. Now I have been seeing fish on brush in the brown water and catching them. I still prefer stained light green water though but you cannot argue with results. The surface water temperature is still 49 degrees and they are starting to generate a little but not much. They could be letting some water out to chase the slug that is going through the Gauge at Newport now and better do so. There is a good chance of rain this weekend. Bink found a bunch of White Bass a couple of days ago and I was glad.  They have been scarce since last spring. Crappie, bass and bluegill are still the best bite and spoons are the best bait. It is to warm up to near 70 again later this week. It does not matter much to me as I have an electric coat, gloves and socks and love to fish. We have not had any winter here yet and the iris and daffodils are up and the Bradford Pears have buds. I hope this works out. Good fishing for the next several days.
