    Was down on Tuesday for business. Water is rising. They've opened the dam but the lake is still coming up. Higher now than many past Memorial Days in the last few years.
    A great time to go down now on good weekends. Can't swim, water to cold, but you can really have fun, no lake lice. Usually a hooded sweatshirt and jeans are all you need. If you anchor in a cove a t shirt and shorts are fine.
    Going down this weekend. Supposed to be close to 70 degrees. was 65 on Tuesday when I was down. Type of water it's fun to run the jet on.
    Thanks, Sundance
