    Yahoo! I heard on the news that ELWOOD RES. is supposed to receive water. Apparently once the Platte River reaches substanable levels, the water will be then transfered to Elwood. Not sure when, but looking at Central's Website it appears to be towards the end of this month. Hopefully they can put enough water into the lake in order to get boats on there. You can bet your bottom dollar I'll be there when the water is going into the lake. This means catfish, wiper and walleye action like crazy!! Stay tuned!!:wink::big_smile:

    Thanks!!

    I will definently post on here to let you guys know when it happens! If you have the opportunity to make it to Elwood, please do so. When the pumps are running, the fishing is crazy and I do mean crazy. the catfishing is ridiculous, chances of catching a 20lb. channel is great odds. last year I caught several in the low teens, including a 15lb. channel on cut shad. stay tuned!!:big_smile:
