A lake is 4.49 feet above normal. That's pretty up there for the A lake. It came up 2.80 feet since this time yesterday.
Pair that with the freezing temps up north and maybe we will see some ducks stop by. Not too early, I hope, but I would like them to get pushed out of Kansas before January.

JND, they will stop by. And stay as long as there is something to feed on. It don't take much of a front to push them down here. I've seen this scenario before. But lets not broadcast it to other forums. Or we'll all be fight-n for a place to set up. I've seen that enough times too.

It will be on a weekend for sure. That way we can accommodate as many as possible. Think we had around 10 or 12 on the last one.



And you'd be taking your life in your own hands Razorback.

Grandbury is now releasing 28,932 cfs. They raised it again.
PK down to releasing 16,479 cfs.
Both of those lakes are less than a foot low.



Whitney is up +4.59 feet above normal, still gaining water, and releasing 19,065 cfs.


Aquilla is +10.04 feet above normal. That is huge for that little lake! It's releasing nothing at the moment.

No word yet. I'm sure he'll have a series of upper and lower GI track test done. Some may require sedation. He may need the night to rest and recover before tomorrow.

Best wishes storm prayers for ya. Has anyone been by towash with all this flooding? Just wondering if I’ll be able to get out to my spot on 12 I use the entrance on the whitney side. It’s kinda low so if the creek is to high I’ll be out of luck. I still have a week before I go home so maybe it’ll go down a bit.

Whitney is 5.95 feet above normal.

Waco came up 8 foot overnight. It's 11.70 feet above normal.

Whitney, Grandbury, and PK still releasing about the same rates.

Looks like Iíll need to dust off the quantum and a couple black senkos instead of my bow.... If you see a pile of corn out in the wide open and wonder what idiot is hunting there itís probably me now. Had to find the best dry spot i could to move and see what happens.

Some areas out there become dynamite in flood conditions like the ones we had in 2015!

Definitely gonna change up some of the feeding patterns out there.

On the phone with the park service. As of noon today all parks are closed indefinitely. They are looking at even more water level rise and are expecting it to crest in another 10 feet. COE are advising any units by the water to bring your own flotation device and enter at your own risk.
