I would just about bet Bo is in the back of a runnoff today.  Would really surprise me if we don't see a post of him and some Monster Basses.

He better get up early if he's going Saturday or he's gonna be fishing behind me and Donna all day 😁

Will the lake be fishable next week?

919 is pretty much nothing.  Guys are slamming them today on swimbaits and topwater.  With the rise the bush bite, the tube bite the jig bite and the Ned Bite will be just off the chart.  

Rise is slowing down, it just hit 919.  They also dropped the flow by 200/300 CFS so its looks like this event did nothing but put some fresh water in the pond.

Fluke was really catching them, it will be a monster now.  Pop R, Yellow Magic, Frog, Spook or any of the walking or popping baits in front of or through the bushes will be in serious danger, not to mention the Spro Rat.

Just picked the flow back up to 15,275.  30 minutes ago it was 14,900  

Another edit.  Just spoke to Phil Stone he guided out of the dam area today and said it was NP getting bit.  Same deal with the boat in 20' swim bait.

Thank you, Bill!

 Fishing was incredible the last couple weeks and awesome the day the storms were rolling in. Went back yesterday a.m. and the banks I was catching them on were trashed and fish were on strike. Fluke bite died. So much current the fish on the banks must have hid for a bit. Water clarity wasn't muddy yet. Went down this a.m. and there was so much stuff (big stuff) floating I chose not to load in. Almost couldn't get to dock to move it. Obvious mud in channel today where we had 6'-8' visibility. Current was hauling even more this a.m.

Maybe the lake will stay up and the wake boards and ocean going rigs will stay home a little longer this summer. Hopefully this high water will help the fish that haven't spawned. Be careful running out there.
