UPDATE 11/28/16

Tuesday, November 29th, 2016

Lake level is at 602.3. We got a little bit of rain over the weekend, but not enough to raise the level any. Water is pretty clear and temps are in the lower to mid 50’s. With the way the near future forecast looks those temps are going to go down pretty quickly over the next 10 days. Right now people are catching some nice crappie in normal fall fashion back in the coves in shallow water. You can use minnows or jigs to get them to bite. They do tend to be pretty aggressive this time of the year. We have heard of some darn good catches in the past week. Now that deer season is a memory for most people it is a good time to come out and get into a nice batch of fresh crappie fillets to get you through the winter. We still have minnows and goldfish and crawlers here at the resort. The store is open on Friday, Saturday 7 to 7 and Sunday 7 to noon. We will still cook on Friday and Saturday for the next couple of weeks doing pizza’s, fried chicken, burgers, and pulled pork. If you want ribs just let me know in advance and I will get them done. We hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving holiday. We do still have 2 rooms available for the special deer hunt the weekend of Dec 10 and 11.

Lake level is at 603.6. Water temp is finally coming down into the upper 50’s, lower 60’s. The fall crappie bite is finally getting started with decent fish coming in the back of the coves in shallow water. Watch for the shad. They can be caught either 3 feet or 14 feet depending on time of day. They do like the sun to be shining. Dipping tree’s seems to be the best bet. No reports on any other fish other than white bass, which can be caught in the same area’s as the crappie. Go out and catch some of these late season fish.
