    ok ladies...read/copied this elsewhere on the world wide web....

    Noticed that SRP was retaining water in horseshoe and dropping Bartlett fasttttttttt tonight flows are up to 1400CFS so I contacted the water people. It is Bartletts turn for dam inspection and repairs,maintence, like what apache and canyon did the last two years in fact last week when I was there there were people walking all over the place on top of the dam.

    Anyway lake is at 68% and dropping about 14+inches per day, per SRP they will drop the lake to below 40% and indicate it will be at least another 28 vertical feet down in order for them to start the work. I figure both launch ramps will be out of the water quite a ways and launching will be a little dicie till things dry out.

    SRP says unless there is unusual water flows that the lake will be held down into Febuary

    be careful with a lake dropping over a foot a day there is no way they will be able to keep up with moving reef and warning buoys.

    that's what you'd think but it also concentrates the bait fish which doesn't help us out any...

    i just like to think positive about everything that i can. heck, haven't been catching a thing lately, so if didn't do that, i'd be going bonkers. (that's crazy for people that aren't that old. LOL)
