Water Level:The Water is down about a foot from last week.
The Sandbar by Northampton is coming up, and it is knee deep at Sand island, so you can dock and enjoy the water in your lawn chair!
Stump ally and Mosquito Bay still have 8-9 feet of water.
They are letting quite a bit of water out, so we may have some nice beach in the coming weeks.
The weekends have been great! All the establishments are in full swing with entertainment all weekend - and their docks and launches are all in Good shape!
All the gas docks are open as well.
Don't forget the Dam Tie Up on August 9th from 12-5. It is a great chance to discover the other end of the Lake (It Doesn't end at the Batchellerville Bridge!) It is 12 miles from the bridge to the dam. It is calmer, narrower but deeper and more mountainous.
You can come by car or boat and there will be extra speakers this year so everyone can hear.
Water Temperature:is 76 degrees.
It has cooled down a bit with the rain and cold nights.
Fishing is Good!Walleye are coming in at 17" - 19"
and quite a few at 14" (just enough to be frustrating as you MUST release those!)
Perch are average
Bass are biting and good sized
Northern's have been 30" or less
Tip of the Week:CHECK YOUR BATTERY!
IF it is raining out that bilge pump and kill the battery!
