The lake level is 559.19 and has risen 2-3/4 inches in the last 24-hours with one generator running most of the time. The 1/2 inch rain we received earlier clouded up the back of the creeks with the runoff but the creeks run very little. The ground is saturated. We missed most of the predicted rain and it looks like Norfork will crest tomorrow if they keep at least one generator running. We could get a little more rain tomorrow and then some high pressure for a few days drying things out a little. The ambient temperatures remain cool with highs in the low 50's and lows near freezing early next week. The White River at Newport is still high at 24.41 feet but has leveled off. They are doing as much as they can to get lake levels back down to the power pool of 553.75 but have a long way to go this time. If they get back down to that it will be very good but it is getting harder and harder with the spring rains that should be a surprise to nobody. The surface water temperature was 52.5 degrees when I came in last evening at dark and I could see my lure down about 3-feet on the main lake. It is a good color for fishing. Fishing is not the best but I was able to catch two bass and two crappie in about an hour of fishing. The wind has shifted to from the north and will change fishing again. I will let you know. The bait fish follow the plankton and the plankton go with the wind. Give Debbie a call at 870-492-5115 for a reservation. Blackburns has no early March price increases or none at all as far as that is concerned and your first boat stall is free. Rates start at $59/day so come on down. We will not charge you too much. We like big covered porches here at Blackburns. Out of the sun. Out of the rain and a good place to rig fishing poles.
