    What the "H" is going on with Lake Barkley??? I haven't seen it this low at this time of year in over four years. It's well below winter pool. I don't even dare launch my boat.

    It's 3/4 foot over winter pool.... :confused:

    People just aren't usually out there when it is actually at winter pool. They usually run it around 355 all winter long and only dip down to true winter pool a few days out of the year. That last foot of elevation makes a huge difference in surface acreage.
