The lake level is 560.68 and has risen 1/2 inch in the last 24-hours. The White River at Newport is 11.40 feet indicating not much water is being released from either Bull Shoals or Norfork. You would think they would need power someplace in the Southwestern Power District with the hot weather all around us. They did start up the generators a couple of hours early today. The White River at Newport is 11.40 feet indicating not much water is being released from Norfork or Bull Shoals. They seem to like to keep both Bull Shoals and Norfork high for some reason while keeping Table Rock normal. It is hard to tell the plan as there is no accountability or explanations. They are known as the office of no. They are sure not making any friends or influencing people with their lake management, constant dock inspections, new property surveys and regulations. I had less inspections in Marine Corps boot camp. They make up rules as they go and their hatchet man is the most disliked person in two counties. I love the lake and would do nothing to harm it and many other people feel the same way and do not want it turned into the Lake of the Ozarks. Fishing has been good  for bass, walleye and stripers. The stripers are under the 101 Bridge about in the middle by the fifth column. and can be caught on the spoon. Walleye are on main lake point brush just under the thermocline at 27-28 feet. The visibility is improving with the thermocline starting at 22-feet and very cold at 26-feet with some kind of algae bloom from the surface down to 22-feet and a mud line from there to 26-feet. Surface water temperature is 80-degrees. Blackburns Resort and Boat Rentalcontinues to have the best prices on both cabins and boat rentals in the Ozarks. One bedroom cabins start at $90/day.
