Go to any of the big bridges and look for the graffi marking previous floods. BTW you must not have been on table rock two years ago....

Please tell me the Weather Channel is not your barometer for whether you should be concerned about your property flooding. Two weeks ago, they predicted 2-4 inches of snow for NW Arkansas. We got 24 in Bella Vista.

If we get a lot of rain this spring, by darn the lake will probably flood. If we don't, it won't.

God knows if that will happen. No one at the National Weather Service or on this forum is quite that high up the chain of command.

The Weather Channel is predicting record flooding in the midwest this spring. Has that traditionally been a problem on Table Rock Lake ?

Weather Channel is more than likely yapping about snow melt coming down the Big Rivers. Heard it's already at flood stage at Louisiana, MO on the Mississippi up N of St. Louis and that's really early. Weather Channel is so unreliable I hardly ever bother wasting electricity to tune them in.

For your area of TR I would suggest you average the Tulsa NOAA office's forecast for Oak Grove, AR http://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick.php?lat=36.46326301239126&lon=-93.44833374023437&site=tsa&smap=1&marine=0&unit=0&lg=en with the Springfield NOAA office's forecast for Lampe, MO http://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick.php?site=sgf&zmx=1&zmy=1&map.x=139&map.y=242 to get some idea of what's coming. The dividing line between those two National Weather Service forecasting areas is the AR State line just a few miles, as the crow flies, to your/our South so you kinda' have to read the "forecast discussion" at the bottom of the page in the text list and then interpret and average what each office is saying. This Winter I have had no faith whatsoever in the Springfield office's forecasts and found the Tulsa boys to be about 75% to 80% accurate and very good about issuing Winter weather advisories/warnings vs. the Springfield bunch. Tulsa's a heck of a lot further away than Spgfld but their forecast area is just over the hill !

It's gonna' take a whole lot of rainin' to fill this pond back up to normal. It will probably come in one Ozark-Frog-Strangler storm......like usual. :rolleyes:

If we get lots of rain it will flood and if don't it won't? Hard to argue with you most of the time Champ......especially hard with that logic! rolleyes.gif

On the other hand......the nice thing about the lake being so low now, is you can take pictures of spots you fish regular. For example.....one spot I usually do pretty well on has some "structure" exposed right now. I realized I had been fishing about twenty-forty feet away from where I should have focused. I was making those poor fish work to get to my hooks!

Here's another "tool" for your lake level tool box......

I'll try and get the Beaver Lake link up here in a few..

I check the TR site everyday... We're back up about 10 inches from just before the big snow.

I hope we have record floods come April for snagging purposes. In 2008 when it was really high, the snagging was out of this world. After snagging is over it can go back down though because I hate fishing high water otherwise.
