Lake level is at 600.7. Be careful out there. At this level there is a lot of ground showing and a lot of areas where you can usually get to that you now can’t. The whole west end of the lake is frozen over. Basically everything west of Hwy 107 is iced over. Open ramps include the State Park ramp at 107, Robert Allen, Shell Branch, Ray Behrens, and Spalding. I have not talked with anyone that has been out fishing lately but if normal holds true then the crappie should be biting on the bridge piers by now. On a clear day you can likely find fish on the south facing bluffs as well. On a hunting note, from all reports, the duck hunting is really good right now. The mallards have moved in and with the west end of the lake frozen they are concentrated on the main lake. Be very careful out there as drowning and hypothermia are very real threats this time of year. Take a buddy along and let someone know where you are going and when they should expect you home.

NOTES: All of us here at Southfork wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
