Looks like a good week for fishing ;D ;D :)  Just a little worried about the water getting too hot down river??  Fished the past few days in morning--FISH ARE STRONG!!

Generation Schedule & Conditions / May 15-21, 2017

Schedule finally updated for the week...

"Hen" reported that they shut down this morning at 8:00! But...


Schedule is showing to crank back up at Noon today, Tuesday and Wednesday and running till 8:00 PM today and Tuesday and 9:00 PM on Wednesday.

Thursday and Friday cranking up at 11:00 AM and running to 10:00 PM.

Saturday running from 11:00 AM to 9:00 PM.

Sunday running from Noon to 8:00 PM.

Pretty much limits you to morning fishing only.  :-\

However, with the lake at just 547.94', I wouldn't be surprised to see something different at any time! Particularly with a 40% to 60% chance of storms for the latter part of the week...

It's a very iffy scenario, but if you want to risk a few hours of morning fishing with the chance that the schedule may change at any moment, more power to ya'!  8)

For those who do get to fish, be prepared for some really healthy fish after a high water episode! Particularly at this time of year!  8)

Its 8:00 Monday the 15th and they just quit generating!!  Water smoothed on river in back of house at 8:17 am.  Don't know for how long, but as of now the river is going down for first time in a while!!!! :) :) :)

Lake is down to 548.42' this afternoon! Should be able to get it to 548' tomorrow around midday if they keep running...

However, SWEPCO still hasn't posted a schedule for this coming week. Don't know what to expect anymore!
My past experience says they'll keep running and get it well below 548', but without getting any word from SWEPCO, I'm not sure what to expect.  ::)

Still running one bunger valve as of today.  Moving lots of water.  I too would GUESS the will run it until they get to at least 548- at least three more days depending on coming rains??  Checked water temp. this morning, holding at 61, thats a good thing!!

Looks like the Bunger Valves kicked in at about 5:00 AM Monday...  8)

Lake is now down to 551.98' this morning, dropping at a pace of nearly a foot every 24 hours - as long as the Bungers are open. At some point they'll cut that back to just generators and the pace will drop back to a little more than half a foot a day.

So for now, we're looking at no less than a week more of high water. That would be my estimate. I wouldn't count on fishing this coming weekend, but you never know.  ::)
