Norfork Lake Conditions and Fishing By Scuba Steve From Blackburns Resort and Boat Rental (Click Here for Comments)

We received one inch of rain in the last two days. The lake is still clear with little runoff. Catfish are biting well on trotlines and jugs on live bait and there is a top water bite early. They always come up but are not always agressive. The white bass are quite easily caught. Some crappie are coming in but not a lot. There are some nice bluegill. It is a slow start for mid may as far as water temperature is concerned. It is 68 degrees this afternoon. The lake level is 554. You can catch a lot of bass on top water lures very close to the shore on flats. A few smallmouth are on river channels just on the drop off. Fish are moving on the main lake points on brush but are slow doing that too. Fish are coming up well on Panther Creek, Fall Creek and Float creek. I am catching a few keeper walleye but not many. We have one 1-bedroom cabin open for memorial day. Come on down. 1-800-635-0526. We will not charge you too much.
