I am writing this report to give you a little insight on what is going on around the lake. It won’t be a fishing report which I hope to do next week but hopefully it will give you an idea of what is going on. We are going to open the marina on Fri 3/27 with limited hours. The motel will be open but the restaurant will open at a later date. With the COVID 19 virus that is in the country we have received guide lines how things are to be cleaned and sanitized and these have all been done. Not knowing what other government guide lines will be brought forth in the next few days and weeks we will try to start the season in accordance with what ever needs to be done. The best advise I can give you is to call before you come and we will update you with what is going on. The phone number hehe at Osage Bluff is 660-438-2939.
I was in contact with the COE this week and they informed me that the COE campgrounds are closed. It is my understanding that the private campgrounds are open. The COE boat ramps are open but the restrooms are all closed.
The lake level is at 713.5 and rising from the heave rains we received over the last week. The water clarity is stained and the water temp is 47 deg. Even with the lake on the rise it is good shape. With the amount of snow and moisture we had this winter the big muse is we are hoping for lots of mushrooms this spring. In reading a report from the conservation department on our spring turkey season they are telling us numbers of 2 ½ year old bird are down this year due to bad hatches a couple years back. We have been seeing a few birds and there is a little gobbling going on at day break.
We do have a few yearly stalls left to rent and are taking reservations for weekend stalls. You can reach us at Osage Bluff Marina 660-438-2939.
Reservations for the motel can be made at 660-438-2891.
We here at the marina are all doing fine and hope everyone this reaches are doing the same.
Till next week
