The lake level was 658.8; with medium to minimum generation scheduled, the lake should hold there until the weekend. Surface temperature at Bagnell Dam was 60 degrees; tributary temperatures are 54 to 64 degrees depending on location and time of day. Ameren’s plan it to begin the annual drawdown to 654.0 after January 1. Truman Lake is still one foot over pool.
Very little has changed in the fishing report.
