A pair of 20's caught this morning with Bink's Guide Service. Over 100 trips a year come from Blackburns and everyone is happy. Good partnership. Image title

The hot weather is here and the Schuler group from Chicago like it. They are always welcome here. The lake level is rising just a bit with very light generation and is at 573.59 and has risen over a foot again. the level a Newport is back near 14-feet after the rains.  It is too late to plant soybeans in the delta so there is no reason not to let some water out. The rules of generation need to be reviewed. Just a few feet makes a big difference on the area lakes for day users. You can swim off Blackburns Dock or in the big pool but swim beaches are under in all area lakes. Norfork is in better shape than most.  The lake in general is in excellent condition and boaters are having a great time and people are catching fish.
