With the hit and miss snow and rain does anyone know what it is like down there? Did rain wash a bunch of gunk into the lake? Is the water clear or muddy? Is there snow on the ground? Are the ramps at K Dock, Beaver Creek and River Run accessible? What is the water temp?

rain? snow? a little, very little. The creeks didn't rise very fast and what I saw were running clear and not very high. We never had snow on the ground really, a little sleet and snow adding up to about a 1/2 inch. I haven't seen the lake since the moisture, but I would be shocked if it wasn't clear. I know it is low. River Run and Shadow Rock ramps are fine.

Today's release is tomorrows gift to another fisherman.

Thanks Wayne. I'll pass that along to a couple of guys who plan to go Sunday or Monday. I did notice that the lake seems to be coming up a bit and is only 5' low now.

Yes it is and it needed it. I haven't stood lakeside so clarity is not something I can post on, but Bull and Swan were up just a little and clean. Just for your reference, before the rains you could walk to the rockpile from the Empire side.

And you could wade from the rock pile the rest of the way across and barely get your knees wet.

I'm not familiar with the rock pile. Is that some place near the Powersite Dam?

Here are some pics of the "Pot Hole" when the lake was really low several years ago

Here's one from this year, not much difference. Last year you couldn't see the rockpile.
