The lake level is 553.61 and has dropped 3/4 inch in the last 24-hours. They have been in a pattern of running the one operational generator for about 8-hours from 9:AM until 5:PM for several days. The White River at Newport is 5.80 feet and very low but they are running Bull Shoals heavily so that should raise. We are to get some raIn tonight and we need it badly. It is very dry with a fire hazard. The generation is helping the water clarity on the main lake and I could see my lure down about 7-feet last evening and it was very clear near the shore. The creeks are still stained green but that changes almost daily with the wind. It has finally slowed way down after being very high for about three days. I do not like wind to say the least. The surface water temperature on the main lake is right around 50 and a few degrees warmer back in the creeks. I am still not finding fish moving back into the creeks in big numbers. A couple of degrees in the spring usually make a big difference but the cold nights cool the shallow water down again. Some fish are in the creeks though where there were almost none. We are in a transition period now but one day soon they will appear under my dock in big numbers. I have good cover there and feed them daily and also have an underwater light. When the bluegill move in the bass and catfish will follow soon after. I am still fishing main lake brush just around to the inside towards the creek and the fish seem to like 23-feet. I am catching a few everyday but not a lot. The best bite remains from sundown to dark. People are wanting to get out for the spring and we are getting a lot of calls. I will open up more cabins at the end of next week if the long range weather looks good as we are staying mostly full. Come on down and we will not charge you too much. You can save over $30/day on a cabin and a free stall for your boat comes with the cabin at our dock. Some charge for them. We do not. Some even raise their prices again in March when the weather gets better to get you at every turn but we do not do that either.  You can stay at the best place and still not pay too much. Give Debbie a call at 870-492-5115 for a reservation before you have to pay way too much elsewhere when we are full and we are the first to fill up. You will like it here.
