LW, the sight looks great!
And I like those Finesse and Ball weights too. Would be great for catfish rigs in the river or lake.

PK is letting the water rip!
And Grandbury is letting a good bit out too. Town of Glenrose is already up 4 more feet above what it's been at 5 for a total of +9'.

Whitney should be coming up over the next few days if they keep this up! The river is about to rise. And maybe the lake too.

Grandbury has bumped it's water release up to over 7000cfs

The Glenrose guage is up to 12.6'. That is 3 more feet from yesterday. It has been running around 5' before the last rains.

The water level has not started back-washing into the Nolan yet from the gauge readings.

PK has dropped it's release to slightly to over 8900cfs.

Grandbury will have to release everything that PK releases due to it's lack of a flood plain. I expect Grandbury to open it's gates even more to handle what PK has/is releasing. This will mean higher water levels on the Brazos and Lake Whitney.

Looks like the W lake has come up 7" in the last 24 hours. But still 1.81' below normal.

PK has greatly reduced it's outflow to less than 300cfs. Grandbury is currently releasing 8,575 cfs. So the big W lake will still becoming up over the next few days.

A lake is 1.22 ft above normal. And has a light release.

I wonder what the expected rain will bring next week. More water probably .

Grandbury has slowed it's release down to 1320cfs at the present. Looks like the Glennrose gauge has dropped about 4 feet. But still above 8 feet. Was 4 feet before this started with water being released at around 400cfs at Grundbury.

W lake has come up a little bit more. Still 1.26 below normal.

A lake is 1.01 feet above normal. But is dropping.

W lake is holding steady the last 36 hours at 1.14 below normal. Grandbury has been releasing water at a steady pace as well at 880 cfs. PK still releasing water but at less than 300 cfs.

A lake is .76 feet above normal and still dropping. Water release cut back to about 300cfs.

There was only one fish in the whole of Lake Whitney yesterday. And I caught it!
It was undersized.

Not sure what happened to the rest of them. Maybe Buckshot-73 can tell ya. I saw him swimming in the lake last week.

We drove through the park late yesterday afternoon and saw several. Fifteen in one wad. They're dropping antlers but I can't walk enough to look for them. I found a couple close to a feeder. The grass is getting to tall to see them also.
Don't know if the gate was open when y'all came by but if you catch it open I'm there so stop in and stay awhile.

A couple of drops I found the other day. The littlest was under the feeder and the other was about 20 yards from the feeder.

I am so proud of my lovely and talented wife..

Sunday night, while I was leaving Houston, her mom called and said her dad (91) had fallen out of bed, she needed help getting him up.

By the time Sylvia got over there, he was in full arrest... She called our son, then called 911. Sylvia has been certified CPR for 15 yrs. but lost it. Careflite coached her till JEREMY got here, they got a pulse back, but he crashed again.

Medics resuscitated him again, and got him to Hospital.


Unfortunately, he suffered brain damage, he is still breathing, but will not survive. Going to hospice today.


She was able to save him for a few more days, so the family could gather around.

I'm getting the itch for a fish camp. Think we spoke about this a little while back. Next weekend is Bownanza. And I will be there cooking fish for the masses. But am open after that for a "Fish Camp" if anybody wants to get together for one on a weekend. I've got about 60 jug-lines I can deploy, and two trot-lines, if I can find that much bait.

I've still got several frozen shad, 2"-3", they're a couple years old but your welcome to them when I get home. I'm not likely to use them, I usually take my cast net and catch fresh ones

Might take ya up on that Ender. Been having trouble finding shad on the upper end lately. Been thinking about carp fishing and using some cut carp or drum for bait, if I can find them too.
Really don't want to buy any bait. I've nearly always have caught it with cast nets.

There is also a law on the books now where you can not take bait from one body of water, and use it in another. I still see fellers doing that. Course I know where your shad came from . But you can catch it on the body of water and transport it to another place on the same body of water.

And another where ya got to have a container of 30 quarts or less for bait. That's to keep peeps from catching bait and transporting it for their personal use in private places. It dose not apply to Lic. guides and their equipment in their boats.

Most of this if not all, is caused by the notorious Zebra Muscle.

I haven't been able to get back down lately to look for sheds. The grass was getting to high to see them when I was there. My looking doesn't cover much area.

I'm getting several pictures of buck with no antlers and several with only one. So I know they're dropping.

Good luck hunting.
