: Lake Rathbun: The current lake level is 904.30. Lake Rathbun contains zebra mussels, so make sure to properly drain, clean, and dry boats before transporting to another water body. Spray boats and trailers with high pressure hot water (above 104 degrees) or let them dry for at least 10 days (5 days in the sun). The lake is free of ice. Target areas that are shallow and catch a lot of sunshine; they will warm up first and hold active fish.
