Reelfoot Update on Water Level & Ducks

Postby Reelfoot Legend » Wed Nov 26, 2008 5:19 am

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.

Hey Guys, Live in NC, but planning to hunt Reelfoot in January with a guide. Did last week's rains raise the water levels at all? Just curios.

Nope, which is a good thing since it is the only water around. We just need rain to fill up the refuges. Still a lot of ducks to the north.

The rain expected in the next two days will help a little. The ground is still a little wet from the last rain. Went today and killed 10 which is our worst day yet.

Anyone know if there is water in the Isum Refuge or Black Bayou? I hunted last week and Bayou was completely dry which really affects the hunting...this time last year it had a lot of water and thousands of ducks.
