8 Units: Lake Dropping Fast

At the rate the lake is dropping it will hit the normal pool elevation of 654 in 7 days or one week.  My guess is we’ll see some much lower water or perhaps some shut off time during the evening with generating starting up sometime in the mornings.  Perhaps it’ll be a good time to ride a rise.  See the article page for “riding the rise”  as well as targeting big fish on no generation water.  The one fly along with the BR-549 are the go to flies the past two days and are producing well.  Wished I had figured that out thursday morning as it was a tough day for me and my fisherman.

Below is a picture from earlier in the week of a fish caught in the State Park Hole.
