We received 1.8 inches of rain in the two day period Starting Saturday night and they have continued to generate heavily but the lake level has risen about three inches to 555.61 and it rained heavily at times. it is near 60 today with temperatures to drop a bit tomorrow. I would like to see the lake about 5-feet lower or more going into the winter which we have not seen yet. I was unable to go fishing yesterday but will try to get out this evening. It is very busy here. Bert Gombos from Pierron, Illinois was here again this last week and had a good time fishing with Tom Kelly. I met Bert this spring and he is a very nice fellow.
