The lake level is 545.37 and dropping with heavy generation starting this morning. It does not need to drop any more for now. Water is clearing. It is to get very warm with a chance of rain for the next few days as we continue to keep on this rollercoaster called weather. We need rain bad. I think when I grow up I will be a weatherman. You can be wrong all the time and still get paid. Everything is about the same as far as fishing is concerned with bass fishing being the best. There are not many boats out there but a lot of fishing reports for some reason. We are working everyday to make improvements at Blackbuirns and you will be pleasantly surprised when you get here and also with no price increases. We still have a free boat stall with your cabin rental. Call 870-492-5115 and compare prices before you waste your money elsewhere. Got a new merry-go-round for the children. 11 pontoons to choose from and enough bass boats for a big group. Have to take a boat to Independence Marine for service and then hit the lake.Yes we do have live bait on site. We are nearly full for the Bass cat tournament April 13 and 14 so call before you get disappointed and have to pay too much elsewhere.
