June 28, 2024

Another week of off and on rain keeping temperatures cooler, reaching a high of 85 F on Tuesday.  Given the rainfall, the dam release fluctuated quite a bit throughout the week.  Starting off with a 1000 CFS release on Monday, on Tuesday the dam was increased to 1650 CFS, brought back down to 500 CFS, and now back up to 750 CFS.  Between the weather and the water conditions, angling pressure remained fairly light.  The anglers that joined us noted activity comparable to the past few weeks, with efforts continuing to be focused in the middle and lower sections.  The dam release is currently scheduled to remain at 750 CFS until 11:59 PM tomorrow (6/29).  Please monitor safewaters.com/facility/lighthouse-hill for updated dam release information.

Heavy rainfall on Saturday, the White Water Release, and the bump in water level from the dam kept many anglers away. The few that did venture out did not report experiencing any fishing success. When the water level drops it will be interesting to see if the pulse in water has encouraged and fish to nose into the run. Water from the dam is currently at 1000cfs but will be going to 1650cfs at 10:00PM this evening. The current flow at Pineville is 1390cfs, but that too will be on the rise overnight.

Relatively light angler pressure for the past several days with diminished numbers of bass; both in terms of number and size. With the hot weather in the forecast, we can anticipate increased water temperatures and a declination in fish activity. Please avoid excessive exposure over the next several days and be sure to keep hydrated (especially if you are anticipating outdoor activities). The flow from the dam remain at 200cfs and at Pineville the flow is 291cfs

Temperatures remained sub 80 F throughout this week, with a bit of sun here and there but mostly cloudy and cool.  Water temperatures were stable in the mid 60's, with most mornings starting at about 60 F.  The release from the dam stayed at 200 CFS with very minimal rain impacting things.  Based on the reports from our anglers this week there's plenty of smallmouth around, again similar to last week, with cooler temperatures the activity was a bit temperamental.  Most anglers reported action in the early to mid morning, with most efforts focused in the middle and lower sections of the property.  The bass reported this week ranged from about 9" to 19" inches.  The dam release is currently scheduled to remain at 200 CFS until 11:59 PM tonight (6/14). Please monitor safewaters.com/facility/lighthouse-hill for updated dam release information.

The weather of late has felt more like November than June. Overcast skies, occasional rain, and unpleasantly cool temperatures with strong westerly winds make for less-than-pleasant conditions on the run. Nevertheless, a few anglers are still having some success in pursuit of smallmouth with one of 20 inches being brought to hand today. Water from the dam remains at 200cfs and the current level at the Pineville gauge is 324cfs. Somewhat warmer temperatures and more sunshine are in the forecast for tomorrow and that will make things much more enjoyable on the run.
