Beginning today, March 10, the generation has been reduced to the 12-hour release schedule.  This is again being forecast for tomorrow.  The schedule is starting at 6:00 am each day with a continuous release scheduled for tomorrow and a split schedule today.  Again, it would be best to check each day prior to planning your trip.

The good news is the lake level is now 463.08 which is only about a foot over normal.  The bad news is rain is forecast for the rest of this week with a possibility of up to 3 inches over this period for this area.  It will be a wait and see event to see if this effects the river clarity and amount of generation.  Hopefully we will miss the brunt of the rainfall and the generation will continue to decline.  The river is clear at this time and with the lower generation, the fishing should improve.  

If the 12-hour schedule continues there will be a window each morning to drift fish in falling water and the bite should be good.  Check the SWPA Forecast for the next day’s schedule.

Good Fishing!!
