The Fish Don’t Mind The High Water!

Beautiful, sunny, warm day today…probably low 80s.  Friday looks nice also with party cloudy and mid 80s.  Possibility of scattered showers or thunderstorms in the afternoon.  Saturday is our best chance for showers and/or thunderstorms.  Some showers in the morning on Sunday, then cloudy most of the day.  By Monday, it looks like low 80s and clear.  Mid-week 50% chances of showers are currently showing up.

No change in the water.  Still have 10 flood gates and 3-4 generators almost 24 hours/day.  Water is clear.
