The corps announced that some of the campgrounds at Bull and Norfork will open a month late (May 1st) . Gamaliel and Quarry on Norfork will will open April 1st. Cranfield is expected to open then but there is still a lot of flood cleanup ongoing. Lead Hill, Beaver Creek and 125 on Bull will open April 2nd.
The marinas are showing interest in taking over Pontiac and Jordan parks that are expected to close. Nothing was mentioned about the Dam park. However there is a nice campground a short distance from the Dam, but electricity is not available there.
On both lakes, club members are reporting decent fishing for bass but not much else. My experience Wednesday was identical to that. Maybe the strong winds will change things, as well as the warm weather we experienced. The pear trees are blooming and some trees are beginning leafing .
