Lake level is coming up fast!

Recommended Posts

Almost 2 inches of rain so far in the PC area as of Noon on Friday, and still coming down hard. Lake level is coming up fast, but the water running into is still clear, at least so far. Hoping not too much mud gets washed into the lake.

We're up to 3 inches now, and PC is running very high and very muddy. Looks like it's going to be a much different lake after this storm goes through. Hope this doesn't mess up any spawning.

High water for spawn seems to always be good. I saw fry in Avoca last week, not sure from what but the higher the water the more cover for them to hide in. Full pool and more through the summer is always the goal and hope to see 1225 by June.

Ended up with 4 1/3 inches. PC has calmed way down, but is still stained. I've not been out on the lake yet, but it looks stained from shore. Lake level is up 4' so far. It'll be interesting to see how the FLW guys do next weekend.

I fished today, back of PC is stained. Rest of mid lake still have good visibility. Can see down several feet, not as clear but definitely not dirty either. Did have a buddy up the rivers today and they are trashed. Can't hardly run a boat up there with all the trash. Even with the cold front though the fish were biting fairly well.

I don't think I ever saw over 2 feet rise in a day, and the river water is not even there yet. Look for all that trash to hit Mid lake by Tuesday. It will be a good year to be selling props.

Check out this graph:

Strong history that by the end of April the lake will be between 1119 and 1121...

We already have over 3.3 inches of rain here in the White River headwaters.  All the little creeks have been out of their banks.  I think we will see 1126 plus by Sunday.
