Lake Drops: Air Temps Rise

Greetings from Jimmy “T’s” Fly Fish Arkansas.  The leading guide service on the White River and your SHAD KILL Head Quarters.

Fishing is in the cards for this afternoon.  Generation is pretty consistent and has been this way for a week or more with 22,400 C.F.S.  The lake level is down to 660.40 and has dropped another 7 1/2 inches in the 24 hour period end at 8:00 am this morning.  The lake temp dropped over night from 46 f as of this morning is back up to 46f .   Another 6 1/2 feet and the lake level will be back to normal pool elevation of 654.  At this rate the lake will be at normal pool in 10 1/2 days or on or about Jan 21st assuming we have no more heavy precipitation. .  Beaver Dam should begin generating this week or next week which means Tanycomo will also be generating which will slow the rate of drop on Bull Shoals Lake…….

Thanks to those who have signed up for the shad kill alert.  That list is growing.  Don’t forget to check out river cliff cabin for a place to stay on while you are on the white river.  There are days left during the week.  The cabin has a dock and if you are familiar with the upper end of the river it is the first private dock down from the dam.  The state park dock is the first dock down from the dam.

Here is a picture I took yesterday morning on the Baxter County side of the river near the dam.  It looks pretty cool. It won’t last long though as the daily temps will continue to rise and will be in the mid 40’s today and into the lower 50’s on wednesday. thursday is calling for a highs in the upper 40’s as is this coming friday as well.

Fishing Special:  Two nights and a full day of fishing for two at River Cliff Cabin $448.00 plus tax on lodging.   Two nights for 4 and a full day of fishing with 2 guides $798.00 plus tax on lodging.  For the month of Feb only.
