The lake level was 657.9; with moderate generation scheduled, the lake should rise to 658.5 by the weekend. Surface temperature at Bagnell Dam was 42 degrees; tributary temperatures were 31 to 39 degrees with some coves having more than one inch of surface ice.
Ameren has begun the annual drawdown, with plans to reach 654.0 by the end of February. Anglers should use extreme caution now, launch ramps and boat docks can be very slippery, plus there is occasional floating ice from coves. Take precautions to prevent accidental immersion and possible hypothermia.
