    As of this morning they revised their projection to 28 ft by tomorrow at about 7 pm. I don't see any fishing on either this weekend. And yes JK, you're correct on the water level being too high to fish off the wall. I don't remember how high it has to be for that to happen , but I'd bet we are past it. Maybe someone will chime in here and clue us in...
