Absolutely beautiful weekend coming up! Almost zero winds most all day Saturday. Mild breeze Friday. And a very light wind Sunday. Nothing more than 79 degrees at max with the lows in the 50s for over night low. Won't be many weekends like this for a while. Tempted to go set jug lines again.

Got out here Wednesday evening, tromped around B3 on Thursday morning, H5 this morning. Grass is so thick and tall I don't think a turkey would risk it, and you couldn't see them anyway. Did manage to pull 7 decent crappie off the Nolan yesterday, no keepers today.

Razorback, looks like you got a monster crappie in that right hand.

I had the Grandboys come camp with me Sat and Sunday. Daughter and SNL were there too. Hushpuppy Man on here showed up Friday morning. He was nice enough to cook me venison burgers for lunch and tenderloins for dinner Friday, and catch all my bait for my jug lines all weekend . He even prepared the fresh fish tacos for Saturday night . Still a lot of bait robbers in the water. Lost a few lines again to brush and fish. Had some hand sized perch stolen on my monster jugs. May go back to running trotlines. Sandies and stripers were working the water at times. But I didn't mess with them this trip.

Stinkbait, glad to see you post. Life gets busy sometimes . I believe the state statue says that it is to start the first Saturday closest to Oct. 1st each year. That would mean the opening of the bow season would be Sept 30 for 2017-2018 season. I believe you may have been looking at the 2016 season dates. It started Oct 1st for 2016. They generally don't publish the season dates till sometime in June, if I remember correctly. Licenses are usually available sometime in August, possibly Aug. 15.

What have you been fishing for? Cats? Bass? Crappie? Glad your wife is feel-n better too.

Looks like Whitney is about to come up a few feet. PK and Grandbury got hammered, are getting hammered, and are letting the water out.

About par for June this time of year for the last few years.

W lake has come up a little over 4" over night. It's 1.75 feet low. From the looks of the elevation on PK and Grandbury, Grandbury is gonna flood if they don't open the gates some more. PK was letting out over 9K cfs yesterday. And over 8700 cfs today. Grandbury is releasing 3500 cfs. PK is near normal level. Grandbury lost 4" over night. But is only .75 feet low. But they are going to have to release a lot more pretty soon~! Or face flooding.

It's to early for me. I've got some irons in the fire at the present. Will know more in a few weeks.

The old building where the Caddo used to be is open again. Calling it the Texas Cattle Guard Steak House. I just tried to call there a moment ago. But no answer. But that don't mean we can't have a G2G at the lake. Or both. Weekend of August 11th is certainly out for me. Will most likely be working the LSBA Youth Archery Booth that weekend at the TTHA show in Ft. Worth, all pending on what happens the next few weeks.

I don't think this one (June) is going to be as bad as the last three years. That is unless we get more rain in the northern Brazos river valley. The river valley basin runs almost to Lubbock.

Edit: And heck Storm, the W lake ain't even full yet. Whatcha fret-n about?

W lake is .09 feet below normal. Still not releasing any water. I expect it to reach normal in the next day or so. Looks like the river valley is getting lots of rain between Grandbury and Whitney at the present. So it certainly will come up a bit more with Grandbury still releasing too.

Grandbury continues to release at 8229 cfs at the present. And is .06 feet below normal.

PK is releasing 290 cfs. And is .2 feet below normal.

For those who want to see what the normal water level is like in the areas you hunt, now is a good time to go look. Also note where it is according to the oldest Willow trees on the bank. Then all you have to do is look at how low the water level is on-line to get an idea of where it's at. Right now it should be right at the base of most of them. Or half way around the base. When at normal level, it is usually to the inshore side of the trunk. Now, if the water level is above normal on-line....that's a different story. Just look how far up the truck of the tree the water level is from the ground,...or rather the bottom under water.

Just looked at the "current" elevation (pun intended). And the W lake is now .56 feet above normal. That's right, I has come up over 6 inches since this morning.

Storm must have spoke to the higher ups at ACE. Grandbury cut it's water release back to 4157 cfs at the present.

I wonder how much the W lake will rise over night now that the crest of Grandbury's water rush is getting there.

W lake is .78 feet above normal at the present. Releasing 81 cfs. Yes, that's a low release.

PK is releasing 291 cfs. Lake is at normal level (0.0). But still has a .11 foot rise in the last 24 hours.

Grandbury has cut it's release back some more to 1750 cfs. Lake is 3" low. Guess yesterday's cutback wasn't enough for Storm.


The A lake is 2+ above normal. It came up 1.16 feet over night.


In all, I think that the Army Corps of Engineers is doing a dang good job of keeping everyone down stream, and up, safe from flooding . That is their number 1# job to begin with. I look at the lakes down stream. And every one except Georgetown is at, or slightly above, capacity. With no sever river flooding. Georgetown is 2.47 feet below normal.

W lake is .82 feet above normal. Same release as yesterday.

Grandbury is releasing 440 cfs. Cut back from yesterday.

PK is releasing 291 cfs.

For those that catfish from the bank: if you can find some flooded green grass of any type, you will find fish. Worms work great in those conditions. You can find the fish in as little as 2 foot of water.

W lake has dropped to 8 inches above normal.

Grandbury still releasing about the same amount. This is the same release rate they had most of this spring between Jan and May, with exception to one high release.

PK releasing 135 cfs.

Battled the wind today. Not much biting. Few bass and a few crappie. Three other boats close by and they did about the same.

A long standing member, and long time Whitney and Aquilla hunter, has been selected for starting the new 2017-2018 thread in August this year. And has accepted the task. He's a very experienced hunter and has taken some great bucks over the years. And as usual, I won't say who it is. It will be a surprise like it has been every year when he starts the new thread in August, after the August Cleburne Get-2-Gether.

That almost is temping to drag the boat out of the back yard. And go chase-em again! But then I'd probably wind up sick again from being in the sun to long, or over heating again.

Carlock, if it was a day like Sunday morning with cooler temps, I'd take ya up on that. That's why I put my boat up for the summer; the warmer temps. I got a little delirious over Fathers Day while outside cooking fish for the family Sunday afternoon. Once you get heat sickness really bad, things are never the same. And it gets easier to get sick again the more ya get sick/over heated.

Looks like I'll be starting back to work on the 10th. Not sure if I'll even get to hunt this year. Or anything else for a while. Got to make it while I can.

Hushpuppy Man and I, and every body else, would have never gotten to eat if we left it up to everybody else . We decided to cook our Dad some catfish. That's what he likes. Rest of us poor chumps got crappie, sandies, catfish, striper, blackbass, and some Gou . We cooked about 30lbs of fillets, and hushpuppies too, in a 12or 14" pot. Took forever. Nothing like the Cajun fryers I've been using at Bownanza . After I get settled into work, I'ma gonna pick up a cajun fryer.

Whitney is letting out a bit of water at just over 4,000 cfs. Sandies and cats should be biting below the dam.
