We have recieved about 2-inches of rain so far with more to come. Most of it has run off and the creeks are not running yet. The lake level has risen about 3-inches in the last 24-Hours with a little generation and is at 554. The surface temperature is still about 50 and has not changed much in several weeks. We have had a very mild winter with no snow. We just finished installing new drains and gutters on the dock and it did not take long to test them out. They worked well and you will like them. I am reluctant to predict the beginning of spring but the dogwoods are blooming as is my giant apple tree. That usually means the walleye and white bass are moving south. I did open up four more cabins and Debbie, and Susan are busy painting, deep cleaning and washing the windows. I do not believe the dock, grounds, pool, cabins and boats have ever been in better condition for your visit. 1-800-635-0526 It is to be 80 next week and things should really break loose. They have had plenty of time to lower the lake this spring. I hope they do not go on tv and radio and say this is what the dams are for. They just need to be managed properly. We know what they are for. To take care of special interest groups. Bink is still catching stripers after dark and Scuba Steve is catching big bass but no walleye. Come on down We are ready. I have to get out and catch some big catfish for Tom Kelly's pond. It is a trophy pond and that is all it needs. When I get that done I will build a chicken coup. I have wanted one for years and also want to raise quail and turn them loose at the resort. I miss having them around here. We used to have lots of them but they are gone.
