Bull Shoals is still 26.5 ft above normal power pool of 659.00. However, the lake is beautiful with a surface temp of about 82 degrees! Little to no debris on the main lake. Probably won’t see a functional boat launch until late October, but launching off of the end of K Hwy is a good option this week! K Dock Marina still has a temp walkway until the lake reaches 679.00 ft. Fishing is good, not great, but lots of walleye coming in trolling with medium to deep crank baits near the flooded brush and the high bluff points. Purple, Blue & jointed Flicker Shads have been really producing! Deep Diving Bandits as well. Running into some Huge crappie suspended too! Crappie are scattered, but will get better when we drop 20 ft or more. Bass are eating up a Peanut Butter & Jelly Jig on the points and any flooded road beds! 10″ Plum Worm still a great choice right now! Also have seen some really big Flat Head Cats caught on small blue gill and perch! Pray for no big rains. Fishing is really going to be good later this year!
