We've seen very little generation the past two weeks.  If the U.S. Corps of Army Engineers run it at all it's midday for a couple of hours, enough to move algae out of the upper end of the lake.  A slimy algae has been growing in both Table Rock and Taneycomo during daylight hours, which is normal for this time of year.  The fish don't mind it, but it's tough on us anglers....

Generation from Table Rock Dam has finally slowed to the point that we can actually predict with certainty that we'll be seeing quite a bit of down water in the coming days, that's until the next big rain.  Mild temperatures and normal lake levels mean less power demand and running water.  That's good for those who like no generation on Taneycomo for fly fishing as well as...

All three lakes in the White River chain of  four lakes are now at their seasonal power pools:  Beaver Lake - 1,120.64 feet (pp 1,120.43).  Table Rock Lake - 915.00 feet (pp 915.00).  Bull Shoals - 658.88 feet (pp 659.00).  But the U.S. Corps of Army Engineers continues to run two units of water, at a lake level of 705.72 feet, day and night.  Some have asked when it will stop...

Guessing what the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers plans to do with lake levels has been tough the last couple of weeks. I emailed to ask someone at the Corps a couple of weeks ago but have not received an answer. I asked about Beaver Lake's level and whether they were going to start dropping it, since it was so high. I got my answer a week ago -- they started running water at...

Generation has been very constant and consistent the past couple of weeks. Operators at the dam have run 40 megawatts most of each day with the exception of a blast of water in the mornings of about two units. Forty megawatts is a little less than one full unit; the lake level is about 704.5 feet. It really is a nice flow of water, allowing you to...
