The river is clearing after the rain and storms on Tuesday.  We got enough rain to put the lake over the level of 462.5 so the Corp is running the one generator around the clock to bring the lake back to normal.  I spoke with the Corp on Wednesday and was told this would probably last for about 7 days. This will mean no wading over the holiday weekend, but the drift fishing should be ok since the water will be clear.  A hiccup in the good fishing conditions we have enjoyed the last couple of weeks but not a complete washout.  Large nymphs and streamers will probably be the best bet in the higher water.
Have a safe Memorial Day weekend and Good Fishing!!
