: Lake Rathbun: The current lake level is 906.29 feet. The lake is about five percent ice covered in the protected bays and coves, but that ice is not thick enough to support anglers. The entrance to Southfork marina is closed for the season. Crappie - No Report: Fishing activity is very low due to the ice around the shorelines and the cold temperatures. Don't forget Lake Rathbun contains zebra mussels so make sure to clean, drain, and dry equipment before transporting to another water body.
