The Corp has informed me that the generation on the Little Red River will increase to 1 generator for 20 hours per day starting Wednesday, May 10, 2017.  This will gradually increase as the White River level at Georgetown recedes.  The second generator will be back on line after annual inspection Saturday, March 13, so two units of generation are possible after this date. It could be that the hours of generation will be reduced with more flow during these hours.  Since the Little Red empties into the White River, this all depends on the White River being able to accommodate this inflow.  As the White River goes down, the generation on the Little Red will increase to lower the level of the lake which is about 8 feet over normal.
Fishing will be limited to drift fishing.  Large weighted nymphs and streamers will be the best fly selection.  Please take care while drifting to avoid being caught on the upstream side of obstacles such as docks or submerged logs. Kayakers and boaters should be aware not to approach docks or submerged trees from the upstream side.  The current will pin the craft against these and pull them under. Be safe on the high water and enjoy your day.

Good Fishing!!
