The lake is starting to drop at a pace of around 4 inches per day. This will increase even more when work begins to repair Power Site Dam in early Oct. Surface temps have climbed back up this week to near 80 degrees. The water is clear and still very high for this time of year. We are set to drop another 19 feet by Nov 12th. Fishing has been getting better and should prove to be a great fall season for almost all species of fish!
