Let me begin by saying I should get a job as a meteorologist! The Lake did the exact opposite of what I predicted last week. The lake level rose  about 2 1/2 feet between Friday and Saturday ... Putting us back to the level we were at just before Memorial Day Weekend!

What can I say other than - you can't get it right all the time (although I do my best!!!)

So what does this mean for us?
Put the dock extenders back on again ... but be aware they are letting quite a lot of water out, so it is going down quickly and you will have to take them back off when we reach the target level of 768 (I would say we will reach it next Tuesday or so)

Sand Island has very little beach and most of the islands are back underwater. The sand bar at Northampton is about waist deep.

Stump ally is navigable at the moment, and you are pretty much safe to boat anywhere with out the worry of hitting underwater hazards. (Use common sense though folks- OK?) 

The Lake is dead calm right now - so other than wakes from boats it is beautiful boating weather.

Lake Temperature
is 70 degrees at the surface
At 20' down it is around 61 degrees

Bass (as predicted)are slowing sown a bit for the season opener this weekend.
