Scuba Steve From Blackburns Resort and Boat Rental On Norfork Lake Arkansas Near Mountain Home in the Ozark Mountains Blog. (Click Here For Comments)

Lake level is 562.16 and dropping. We are getting dry again here. Last summer holiday is about over and day services on the lake are coming into play along with some campgrounds. Took since last of April to get the level down to manageable. People really missed the swimming areas this year but were able to go out on pontoons and swim off them. There are a lot of fish in this area of the lake at 22-26 feet and some brush piles are getting to be at the right depth. A am very sad about the striper kill down by the dam but have not seen any here. There are a lot of small walleye dying there also. Hard to tell how many sank to the bottom rather than floating. Dissolved oxygen is best the closer you get to where the river flows into the lake. It is about time to start catching some big flatheads. Starting today Blackburns has dropped their rates to $53/day for a one bedroom cabin along with a free boat stall. Up to 4-bedrooms are priced accordingly.  Others charge from $80-to over $100 and charge for boat stalls and trolling motors on pontoon rentals and have no covered porches. You can save $ towards the rising gas prices. The weather is to get cooler for the next week and fishing will get better. Call 870-492-5115 We will not charge you too much and are open all year.
