Even with the recent heavy rains, the lake has remained very clean and stable! Perfect conditions for this Labor Day Weekend! Water temp is at a perfect 84 degrees and the fish have been hitting great that past few weeks! A little slower the past few days after all the lighting and thunder, but they should turn back on by this weekend.
