Great News! The cold wind that has been blowing non-stop is going to soon be gone. Lake temperature has dropped back down to 56 degrees in the mornings but it rises to 60 by evening. That has slowed bass and crappie spawning. Looks like all of us are just waiting for that warm weather, which begins this weekend. Then it will be party time.
More great news! The Castle Rock Cut deepening project is now complete. The Cut was taken down to elevation 3580 after 300,000 cubic yards of material was removed. At this elevation the Cut is 1-mile long. The lake will flood the Cut by rising just 3 feet. Boats can cross with an additional 3-5 feet of elevation increase. The lake rose 18 inches last week. At that rate look for the Cut to be open for Memorial Day.<
