The lake level is 462.7 as of Friday morning (April 20). This is .7 ft. above normal. The Corp has informed me that they will release 12 hours of 2 unit generation until Tuesday (April 24). If we miss the heavy rain forecast for Sunday, the lake will return to normal at this time and generation will be for power demand only which should be a reduction in the flow.
This Saturday and Sunday, the generation is scheduled from 10:00 am to 10:00 pm (2 Units). Monday it will probably return to the 6:00 am start time.
The river is clear and Caddis and March Browns are beginning to hatch. The bite is good ahead of the generation rise.
The cold weather looks to be behind us so you may want to start planning your spring or early summer trip. Just give me a call or email to get that date you prefer. I still have May and June dates open.
