I havenít been to Adobe recently but Henery and Merideth were still capped Friday. The last update said the water was below the low water ramp but I have unloaded a boat with the lake lower than it is now. Around May we will be getting more accurate updates.

Work and curiosity took out there this morning. The lake is at the same level it has been all winter. Only the north half of the lake has water. Last November at this level I was seeing max depth of 13 ft. You should be able to launch a boat as long as its not to big. The only ramp in the water is the east low water ramp and it is pretty flat. I took a temp as far out as I could reach and it was 43į. The picture is the low water ramps this morning.

thank you fellas for checking it out for me at least I know I can get my boat in the low water boat ramp and it would be worth probably going down to catch some crappie

Not to say that you can't catch them this time of the year but we usually do well later in the year around mid April. Finished it early last year and the fish were holding tight on the bottom, this lake go through such fluctuation of water inconsistency that hopefully the crappies are much bigger this year.

The stocking reports are insane for that lake I know it is halfway empty but if you read this stocking reports the amount of crappies saugeyes and other fish they put in that small Reservoir is crazy why do they dump so many fish in that one little lake

Here's a link to the CPW fish survey of this lake. Even at such high stocking numbers the mortality rate is very high due to the fluctuation of water levels.
