Bennett Spring Fishing Report for 10-26-2011
What a spectacular way to end the fishing season. The weather has been absolutely golden, the water is clearer than can be imagined and there are large numbers of fish to be caught. This coming weekend is forecast to be somewhat cooler, but still sunny and mild. There is a predicted rain Wednesday that may bring the spring up a little bit, but by the weekend we should see conditions as they are now.
• The Spring is currently putting out 130 cubic feet per second.
• The water level currently measures 1.93 feet at the Gage House.
• The water continues to be very clear.
Thursday: Partly sunny, with a high near 53.
Friday: Sunny, with a high near 57.
Saturday: Sunny, with a high near 59.
Sunday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 63.
Monday: Sunny, with a high near 65.
