Rain did not help water level on Reelfoot Lake. We got maybe a 1/2" of rain Monday. Water Level is 280.64' feet msl (mean sea level) this morning. almost two feet low. Go-Devil & Air Boat time on the lake for sure. Lots of damage to boats etc. opening day for sure.
Ducks are still here by the thousands (150,000 +/- 1) - Mostly Gladwalls, Pintail, Teal and lots of Mallards located along the Bayou Du Chien from Brewer Bar, Burnt Woods, Simons Pocket, Buzzard Slough, Tri Bar Timber, Snaggy Towhead areas.
Lower Blue Basin is full of Divers of all types.
Lots of stumps above the water line in many areas - 30% of blinds have no water at all to hunt from reports around the lake.
Grassey Island Refuge Unit is full of ducks - not sure about about the Long Point Unit on the North End of Lake.
