Table Rock has turned

Recommended Posts

James at the hatchery just emailed me and said the indicators at the inflow went from 1 to 7 ppm overnight so the lake turned last night.

I thought it'd turn quick this year.

How long after the turnover does the chum shad begin to turn up? I assume this isn't necessarily simultaneous with the turn?

I always seem to hear about this about a week or so after it happens and always miss all the action, so thanks for the quick report.

Their die off threshold is said to be -45 degrees, but they also have to be near the dam at the time they turn belly up.

Sorry, I noticed the implication but there isn't an edit feature. Below 45 is threashold for Threadfins.

I might point out that the fish become conditioned quickly and once there is a kill, dead or dying Shad aren't required to fool many fish, just something that resembles a Shad for several days after..
