SO my question is WHERE do you like to see the lake level at? Seems like it goes up and down a lot which is what it was designed for but what is best for area owners etc.

For ease of safe access in some of the coves we like, I'll take 915 and would be happy up to 916. We don't launch that often, but it sure is easier at 916 or even more. Talking about state park.

Here's an interesting figure, one I don't believe anyone here has ever talked about (which seems hard to believe since we talk about everything ):

Bottom Power Pool: 881.0

I have not been able to find a definition of Bottom Power Pool, so I'm going with the lowest level at which the lake can provide power generation.

Table Rock Lake provides a storage capacity of 3,462,000 acre-feet, of which 760,000 are for flood-control and 2,702,000 are for generation of power. The flood control storage is equivalent to a depth of 3.5 inches of water over the entire contributing drainage area above the dam, 4020 square miles. At the top of flood control pool the lake has a surface area of 52,300 acres and a shoreline of 857 miles. The full conservation pool covers an area of 43,100 acres and has a shoreline of 745 miles.

I know you don't like 920 because you have no shoreline to walk. But can you get them to raise it to 922-924 by next week? Trout fishing can be fantastic up in the creeks on Taneycomo this time of year when they are running 4 units constantly!
Probably not soon enough though. It usually takes a few weeks to drive all the big fish into the slower moving creeks that are still cold from the Winter.

Being as you're on the other side of the dam, you probably would not like 944.

LOL, I don't think anybody would!!! How about 924.

944 Would probably stock Taneycomo trout all the way to the Louisiana Delta!!!!

Still creeping up, and the rain hasn't started. If we get what they're saying, plan on 915 at least, making some happy.

It happens every Spring, but it is really happening right now . . . there seems to be a lot of people out shopping for their lake place, and boat slips. Time flies, but it's 20 years since we were doing that! There's still interest in TRL.

How about 915, and 90 degree temperatures so they have high demand for electricity, and plenty of water to generate with for all the AC demands.
