Oh wow! Looks like some fishing time Wednesday, Thursday, Friday am. Don't remember weekend. I will still call before driving up there. John D

They must be feeling pretty ambitious about getting water off the lake! I'd definitely have to see it before I believe it, as yet. But it's conceivable! :o

Just keep an eye on it through the weekend...

They are indeed dropping about a foot every twenty-four hours! :o

If they keep that pace up, we just might have normal conditions by mid week! :)

Monday the 29th!

Lake was at 550.38' at 9:00 this morning. Still scheduled to run non stop through midnight Tuesday. That should get it very close to 548' by then and I suspect they'll be happy. They've been hoofin' water off as fast as I've ever seen it!!!

Schedule for the rest if the week is crank up everyday at 11:00 AM, however. Doesn't leave a whole lot of time for a good trip unless you're already close. Maybe next week's schedule will give us some more hours of low water... :|

Looks like they backed off on the flows late this morning... Appears to be settling at normal three generator levels.

Afraid so, John! :|

I suspect, as usual, they want to get the lake, just a little below flood. Understandable since we're about to go into peak tropical season.

Schedule shows round the clock until overnight Friday, then cranking back up at 11:00 Saturday and Sunday...
