    Collins is never really super clear but it is a lot muddier than normal now. It usually cleans up in a few days unless we get more wind and rain.
    Example on Monday I could not see my prop on my outboard. Maybe 12" of visibility?? By Thursday I could see my prop but not very well. So maybe 18-24" inches where I spent most of my time. Up past the power lines and right in front of the dam are the worst 2 locations right now. In the middle of some of the coves it is slightly cleaner.
    I did see a bank fisherman hook a nice trout near the swim beach. Good fish even if it did come off right at the net. Usually bankers do better than guys trolling when it is muddy.

    The lake is now about 12-13 feet down and that is up from 26 feet down 2 weeks ago.
