The lake level is 557.12 and hs remained constant for two days. They have shut off the flood gates and have also reduced generation to maintain this level three feet from going over the spillway. They have held Bull Shoals until it is nearly full while keepng gates open on Table Rock to protect Branson at all costs. They are now out of options except to open gates if we get a big rain. This steady level has cleared the lake a lot there is not a lot of debris in this area except near the bank. Bass abd catfish are still the best bite. Reports that the water is clear with no debris near the dam are greatly exaggerated. Everything that does not get hung up on the way ends up near and past the dam and rolls with the flow. It is just a matter of time. It is to rain tonight and be beautiful for the weekend.
