Water level is 10.59 above normal on the W lake at the present. And 6.14 above normal on the A lake at the present.
Thanks TG! I'm torn, because I really wanted to be on W tomorrow, but now I'm thinking of joining the boys on Fork for some Crappie fishin'...

That (Fork) will be a good time! I'd go, but don't have a dog sitter. And Pope's don't accept dogs over 40lbs.

W lake got down to 9.43 above normal. And Granbury opens up the gates to over 25,000cfs ?


A lake is at 4.48 feet above normal.

If the A lake region doesn't get any more flash flooding, the A lake may be open soon. It's down to 3.35 feet above normal.


The W lake is a different story. Seems it's gonna be a while before they let it down some more. PK is releasing water at over 17,300 cfs. That is bumped up from yesterday. PK is releasing almost 17,800 cfs. But the W lake is releasing water also at over 23,800 cfs. It only gained 3" over the last 24 hours to the moment. And remains at 9.75 feet above normal.


The rest of the Brazos projects are slowly dropping. And becoming close to usable again. But some not.



Who knows? We may get a drought after all this rain.

We were hoping to camp out at Hamm Creek, looks like we need to make other arrangements as well. After last weekend, Fork sounds pretty good.

"Well", that is usually a deep subject. But it's not gonna be as deep as the W lake. PK opened its gates today, to almost 26,500cfs. Granbury is releasing over 22,600 cfs. I expect it will go up due to what PK is doing. The W lake is releasing about 24,350 cfs. I don't expect it to release more till after it fills back up some, because many of the smaller lakes on down the river basin are releasing water into the river already. And since they don't have as big of a flood plane as the W lake dose, W lake will fill back up some. W lake is currently 9.61 feet above normal.


A lake is doing pretty good at 3.49 feet above normal. And slowly dropping.

Happy Fathers Day to all the Dads out there.


Yall get ready! The W lake is only 5.53 feet above normal! This means some of the park boat ramps may soon be open in a few weeks. Being limited in manpower and resources, some of the the parks may take months before camping is allowed though. That had been the past history with some. But we're on our way. You can still launch at some of the private ramps on the lake at the present.


A lake is only 1.57 feet above normal. I bet the fish are hungry there!

It's to hot for me to be out fishing. I've done "winterized" my boat for the summer. And towed it in the back yard. I'll drag it back out come Sept when it starts to cool down a little.

Canít be for the lake they have several parks open for swimming and fishing. Soldiers bluff, lofers west, and cedar creek. Could be true about the river though because of the high water. Idk

If you enter a closed ACE park, you might get a ticket. Or if you go beyond a closed boundy in a park.

Great news! W lake is just under 4" above normal!


A lake is higher than the W lake at .55 feet above normal.




There should be lots of growth out there with all the rain we've had.

I spoke with the COE this morning, all of their parks are open except Plowman and the Kimball Bend boat ramp. I was in particular asking concerning Cedron and McCown, I suggest you call prior to making a trip. I read on TFF State Park closed until last week of July.

Maybe he's a baiting for catfish? I hear of folks using range cubes for that.






Edit: Course, if it's 300 yards from the water, it'd have to be "walking catfish".

You don't need to hook them, just throw it at-em. Did I say it's hot, looking forward the the mid-week cool down.

Hey, turn that watch around.

Hello all, I am new to texasbowhunter forums and just wanted to say hey.

Tried to go through all the pages of this thread to get some info, but it's mostly deer stuff. I'm more of a hog guy. Anyone have any info about hogs in either areas?

I can say that they are on both lakes. And they are in every unit. Some more than others, just like the deer and all other game. Just gotta get out and stomp the ground to find what you're looking for. That's half the fun of it all anyway. And welcome to TBH.

Thanks! Sounds good to me. I am right by Lake Lavon which doesn't allow hog hunting during the deer season so I wanted to checkout Lake Aquilla because it looks like a great area.

So for all y’all Aquilla hunters, how big is Aquilla creek normally? I’m looking at it on onX and it looks about 30-50’ wide but the picture looks like it was taken during flood. Just wondering if it’s navigable during normal lake levels

There are lots of hogs around, Iíve seen most of them close to the water but of course they can be anywhere. They are on every unit though. You being a mostly hog hunting guy probably know more than us mostly deer guys about where to look lol. I may be asking you for some advice.

Ender, like your concern, water level makes the biggest difference. It has been my experience that when the lake is near normal level or less, where the creek meets the open lake, the creek will be mostly dry unless there has been a recent rain. The banks can be really steep when you get toward the lake. Not very tall for the most part, unless your old . Found a rope ladder on the west bank onetime.
