Update 3/26/15

Thursday, March 26th, 2015

Lake level is at 607.1 and rising. We had about 1.5″ of rain over the past couple of days.

CRAPPIE: Before the rain they were catching some nice crappie in the backs of some of the south facing coves. Look for warmer water. 2 or 3 degree’s will make a huge difference in the attitude of the fish. If you can catch a day when the wind isn’t blowing to hard and the sun is shining you can find some good fishing.

CATFISH: We have been hearing about some decent blue’s in the 30# range. Shad seems to be working best right now

BASS: No reports

Lake level is 605.4. The lake is pretty well free of ice and all landings should be useable. No courtesy docks yet that I know of. There have been some folks out on the water but we have not heard back about their success. I assume the crappie will be deep yet, but you might find them near the surface on the days when the sun is out warming the water. I would try bridge piers and rock faces that are facing the south as those will warm up first. Walleye will be biting down below the dam or back into the creek arms.

NOTE: We will be doing the tree drop this coming Saturday. Anyone wanting to help can give us a call for more information. You can help here at Southfork or up at Spalding. We will meet here at 8:30.

Update 3/8/15

Lake level is 603.8 and rising. The lake is still pretty well frozen over. With the temps the way they are supposed to be this coming week I am hopeful that maybe by Thursday the ice will be off enough to at least fish the main lake. I will post on here as soon as that happens. The river below the dam did open up this past week so a person could put a boat in there and fish. We have been seeing a lot of turkey around lately so that is a good sign. We are also seeing some white geese around so that could be fun. See you all soon I hope.
