The current Lake level is 706.39 with the water temperature in the low 40’s. With the cold front moving in you can expect some surface ice so be careful.3
It’s been a crappie fishing bonanza, as they have reached the winter pattern along the bare bank bluffs. Casting an 1/8th ounce jig near the bank and working it SLOWLY back to the boat has produced several fast limits of nice crappie. This pattern should continue until March when they head to the spawning coves.
I’ll be cutting back this winter, beginning in November to catch up on the lure making. Will be having both knees replaced December 30. What a way to end the year and start 2023. I really hate to admit age is catching up….It’s still just a number and I still haven’t decided what I want to be when I grow up….BUT….I’m going to wait until Spring this go around. Plans are to be back on the water by April 1, 2023.
As many of you know, Sterett Creek Marina and Resort sold and the new owners, BeYonder Campgrounds has taken over and is busy getting ready to make some changes in the facility I think we will all like… Winter will be extremely busy with changes to the Camp sites and the motel areas. Not sure what lies ahead for the Marina yet, but another dock is in the plans.
That’s it for now, be careful and watch out for the other guy…..
