The lake level is 541.9 and is stable.  They seem to be in a pattern of running one generator for three or four hours in the mornings. Surface water temperature is still about 46 degrees on the main lake and a few degrees lower in the shallow part of the creeks. It was cloudy with light winds yesterday with highs in the 40's and fishing was pretty good. The big fish I caught was on brush near the bottom in about 10-feet of water. Caught a bucket full of bass and crappie for the trophy pond. 1/8th ounce Bink's spoon, blue in color and grub worked the best. It was confortable out there compared to the day before. Fish started biting about 3:30 PM.
