Water temps are in the 57- 58* at the Lithia Springs area, marking a lot of fish but getting them to hit is different. Was there for 2 days & got my limit, but you had to work for them. All on minnows, tried plastics & jigs but them would not touch them. Very few fishermen out, one day had the whole lake to myself. The fish are not jumping in the boat at least on the south end.

Current pool is 603 about 7 feet above average this time of year. Expected to rise another 1-2 feet by Sat. Not sure in water temp.

Guys, heading down for the Champaign Firefighters Crappie Tournament. Anyone know what the water temps are? And the water must be pouring into the lake. Anyone know the current lake level? Thanks and see you on the water.

I went last Wednesday and I couldn't believe that the water was even lower than the last time. Hardly any current and very few fisherman (which should have told me something). We fished for about 6 hours threw every trick in the book at them and still not one bight. My partner snagged two muskies but lost them both. Until they start letting water out I would wait before I would try again.

Go to the USGS Website and look under real time water data.  You can see the discharge at the spillway.  You can also check the flow of the rivers coming in to the lake.

Is there a way to get army corp. of engineer information on when they are going to let water out?. Live 4 hrs. Away and would like to know ahead of time when water will be coming out of dam. Is this possible?
