Due to a decision by the Power Commission, the drawdown of the lake has been changed to one unit of generation around the clock until the lake level is 457 feet.  This is the level needed to do the repair work necessary to bring the second generator on line.  I was told that March 1 should be the target date for this level unless we get a large amount of rainfall before this date. The lake level is 458.4 at this time and falling at .2 feet per day. When the lake reaches this level, the generation should return to demand only which should allow breaks in the schedule and allow wade fishing.  The one generator water is at a flow of about 3400 cfs.  Drift fishing is available on this water but no wade fishing.
Large nymphs and streamers are taking fish.

Good Fishing!!
