As summer ends and fall comes into play our forecast is high 83 low 47. The rest of the week and weekend will be great weather for striper fishing. The highs will be in the mid 80’s and the lows in the mid 50’s. The wind will be 10 to 15 mph out of the east. The sunrise was at 7:11 AM with the sunset at 7:31 PM giving us a total of 13 hrs and 09 min to fish for stripers. As of 8:00 AM the lake level is at 616.62 ft which is up 1.36 ft with a temperature of 80 degrees which is 8 degrees cooler than last month. The Corp of Engineers is generation on 2 units from 11:00 AM to 7:00 PM. As the lake continues to cool off the fishing will only get better.
We apologize for any inconvenience we may have caused anyone for canceling last weekend due to the hurricane. We were under the impression that the lake was going to be to ruff for fishing and we were concerned for everyone’s safety. We have a boat open this weekend and some open next weekend if you would like to reschedule. We hope all our friends and customers faired well during the hurricane.
We are leaving the boathouse for our morning trips at 6:45 AM. This gives the guide’s time to get the customers out there ready for that first morning top water action. Our afternoon trips are leaving out at 2:00 PM and with the full moon this week afternoon fishing should be great.
