When I woke up this morning it was 55 degrees and now it is 45 degrees and windy and raining. It is to freeze tonight and clear with excellent weather for next week. We have received over two inches of rain so far with more to come. The lake level is 552.20 and has risen 4-inches in the last 24-hours with no generation. The creeks are running and the grass is getting very green as is the lake. Fishing had just began to pick up and we will see what this does. Reports that the night bite for stripers has begun is premature. There are a few being caught but not very many and most of them have been during the day. Jerk baits and jigging spoons are still the baits of choice and live bait fishermen are having a hard time. There are several fish moving to the creek banks and some are still deep. We just need the water to warm up and this weather is not helping anything. It will happen but we are at least two weeks behind. We need some 50 degree water that is not way back in the creeks. All of Blackburns cabins are open and the last pieces of new carpet are being installed as we speak. Check out our prices before you book your trip. We do not want you to pay too much. People are catching fish but not a lot everyday.
