Dang, I've gotta work in the morning.

Can you ask the Rangers to reschedule the game for next weekend?

The fish are biting, and there's hogs to be kilt. Gotta go!

Fishing was great yesterday. Limited out for striper in 30 minutes. Caught several LMB and catfish.

Not here. Started to go to LBJ on Saturday- glad I didn't. Spent the weekend setting up the new patio furniture, new solenoid and rebuild carb for tractor, and put a new fuel pump on the boat.

Not sure about next weekend, Sunday is Easter.

W lake is up 4.42 feet above normal. Catfishing should be good along the banks.


A lake is up 4.02 feet above normal.


Granbury is still releasing over 7k cfs. PK is releasing over 2K cfs. W lake is releasing over 6k cfs. Fishing should be good below the dams.

Just call Hamms Creek. They said the boat ramps are still open. But the water is all the way to the top of the ramps.



Looks like we got a chance for some more rain this week. I'ma ready for it to quit for a little while so my back yard will dry out. It's a swamp back there right now. Seen a gator with one of the neighbor's cats heading for some coontail moss earlier today.

Looks like the Granbury release has been slowly cut back to 2635 cfs. PK is about half that much. Which brings the question: What will the proposed rains this week do to those lakes. The W lake continues to release water at 6,500+ cfs. Thankfully it has been a drop in level. Slow, but it's dropping. And sitting at 4.11 feet above normal.


A lake is 3.52 feet above normal at the moment and dropping still. I'ma dying to get out there and try all those crappie condos and structures TP&W put in over the last few years. Got them all marked on my sonar/GPS. Just need this little lake to settle, and the wind to be right.

And so, as the story goes, PK and Granbury open their gates back up. And Whitney is on the rise once again.




And the A lake, it's back up higher than it was.




This water drama is killing me!

PK releasing 18,600 cfs
Granbury releasing 20,000 cfs



W lake is 6.05 feet high and rising. And releasing 6,600 cfs.



A lake is 6.32 feet high and rising. And releasing 824 cfs.





Hope the W lake don't get to high.

PK and Granbury continue to release the same amounts.


The W lake has come up 1.89 feet in the last 24 hours to the minute. And now sits at 8.13 feet above normal. The gates there have been closed at the present, no water being released.


The A lake has come up .88 feet in the last 24 hours. It sits at 7.25 feet above normal. That is a lot for this little lake. NO water is being released.

Looks like Granbury opened it's gates up some more. Now releasing over 29,000 cfs. I'm gonna bet Whitney fills up again. Hopefully they will start letting water out of it before long. The rest of the lakes on the mid and lower Brazos are already beyond full. And they're not releasing much from them. If they don't open some of those smaller lakes up, there's gonna be some serious flooding on the mid and lower Brazos.

OK. Whitney sits at 22.17 feet above normal at the moment. And is now releasing over 16,000cfs. This is going to cause some real havoc down stream as the lower Brazos is already flooded. It crested at over 51 feet this past Friday. I've got another thread on the Brazos river basin in Around The Campfire.
Granbury has cut it's release back to 16,000cfs. And PK has cut it's back to 8,000cfs. Lets just hope any rain we get this week or coming weekend, is minor.


A lake is 11.32 feet above normal and not releasing much. The catwalk below the dam should be good for sandies and crappie right now.

Thanks for posting Nanners!

I usually stay home on this weekend, the 4th, and Labrador Day weekends. To many people on the water for me. Maybe I'll get to work this weekend.
