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?

I went to the spillway and got there around 6:30 am. First thing I noticed is that the river is really low. Barely any water coming out of the dam and there is really very little current. I fished two of my traditional spots on the east side using grubs with a 1/4 ounce head. First spot not even one bite. Moved closer to the dam and within 30 minutes caught one sauger and half an hour later caught one gar. at 9 am I hooked a pretty good muskie but after the first jump it broke my line. 9 am was when I had to leave so that's it. I did see one guy catch either a walleye or a sauger on the transition between the rock and concrete but that was about it. Until they start releasing water down there it could be pretty rough for fishing.
