Update 12/28/11

Wednesday, December 28th, 2011

Lake level is at 603.8. The lake is still pretty well open at this time and with the warm temps this week I don’t think it will freeze over this week. There are still a few brave souls out fishing, though we haven’t gotten any feedback on how they are doing. I would try the bridge piers or other structure that holds heat. The crappie could be 30 feet down, or in the heat of the day could come up to 4′. You might also find them on shallow flats chasing shad the come up to chase the hatch of the day.

Deer seasons for firearms is down to the late youth season, which is Jan 7 and 8th. It’s a good chance to take your youngster out to fill that last tag. Archery season continues until Jan 15.

We wish all of you a Happy New Year.

Lake level is at 601.3 today thanks to the rain we received this past week. We got about 2″ by the looks of it. I took the rain gauge in for the winter so I am not sure exactly how much. There are still some brave folks out there catching crappie. It’s not a fast bite, but if you stick with it you can catch a decent mess of fish. I also heard of some nice blues coming from 50 FOW. Muzzle loader season is set to start tomorrow and runs through 12/27. Our winter rates are in effect. Call and ask about them. All of us here at the resort wish all of you a Very Merry Christmas. We hope you get all the things you have been wishing for.

Lake level is at 600.6 and steady. It is not froze over yet. The crappie are still biting and this week we heard the blue and channel cats are also biting pretty good. There aren’t many folks out fishing, especially this week with the snow and cold weather we got. We ended up with about 2″ of t he white stuff.

*** Starting today we will be going to winter rates. Cabins are $65 per night, kitchenettes are $45, and motel rooms are $35.

Lake level is still at 600.6 with water temps in the 40’s. The crappie are still biting on blowdowns in 2-6 FOW. No word on any other types of fish. So far the lake remains open though you might find some ice back in the coves, especially on those cold mornings. Firearms season for antlerless deer comes to a close after this weekend. There is still plenty of time to get some small game hunting in.
