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!!!!

Because of earlier rain saturating the ground, it's pretty much 100% runoff, so, here we go:

21APR2017 0900 913.16

The James River at Galena has been up for four days, and is really up today.

Guess where it's going?

The entire area for about 80 miles around Branson got at least 1.5" yesterday and last night, and a lot of it 5". That's a lot of water yet to get here.

22APR2017 1100 916.12



Man what a yucky few days . . . but, tournament boats were running up the lake at 7:00 this morning.

I just hate it when it's very windy, 45°, and moving docks requires chest waders!



The next warm day would be a great time to go around the lake and pick stuff up off the banks. . . . No Wake Buoys, fenders, dock foam, chairs, etc.

The James River at Springfield was 3 feet above flood stage yesterday, and is now back down to right at flood stage.

At Galena it just hit flood stage, and is still going up.

918.27 with a full four units running since Noon yesterday when the level was 918.07. So creeping up a bit even with a bit over 13K cfs discharging through the turbines.
Looks like I might be getting my wish for next week. Sorry NotJLB, I know my wish is your nightmare.

Yup, with a heavy release it has been reversed:

24APR2017 1300 918.26
24APR2017 1400 918.24

at about 10 feet too high for this time of year.

More storms in a couple days.

If that is current, we have a low water warning and a high water warning on this forum at the same time.

Where's the low water warning? Wasn't that a month or so ago?
Your link is for high water, and debris in the water.

Not necessarily. Didn't it take 13" of rain in six day in 2011 to bring serious flooding? Isn't the NWS forecast, including today's rain 6 1/2" total through the weekend?
They have the gates open some. Five gates enough to make up for the one unit that is down. So in reality, they aren't even dumping water any more than generating four units. They have a few more inches of the five gates, and some on the other five before things bet bad below the dam. So they still have discharge room without major flooding.
