I can assure you with 110% accuracy that Lavon absolutely did not release water into Lake Ray Hubbard during the drought. That is a popular misconception of many people around Lavon. I’ve heard it my entire life and fish Lavon and drink it’s water.

Both lakes were extremely low, Ray Hubbard was at an all time record low.

Both lakes are operated by different authorities, each with their own water rights permits granted by the state. NTMWD will not give the City of Dallas water from Lavon.

There 26’ Pavati is closer to 300. Probably about as high end as you can go on wakeboard boat.

I know (not close but from the same town) the guy selling that 205k mastercraft. I had talked to his cousin and they were considering using a telehandler to get under the roof of the lift house and pull it out that way, but wound up being able to back under it. Very very sketchy ordeal with that much money teetering in the air.

Valid point but due to the huge amount of revenue generated from license and permit sales the state would never even consider it. That's how the wakeboarding ban was implemented, it was simple due to no $$ generation.

Lived on Lake Placid for several years and the skiers, wake boarders, and jet skiers were a pain if you were a fisherman. The noise from boat speakers and jet skis spoiled the peace and quiet I associate with a lakefront home. On the holiday use weekends (Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, etc) we just left our place and went somewhere else.

When it came to fishing, I just waited until after dark and started, fishing the lighted docks. My solution would be to make the two different uses alternate days---say even days for fishing, odd days for wakeboards, etc.

Went to school at TLU TLC back in the day and spent lots of days on Lake Placid. Way to small and way too many boats and jet skis. Was back then can't imagine how bad it is these days. I also lived on McQueeny for awhile and it is horrible as well.

I seen on the news this morning that GBRA is considering a plan to drain or lower the remaining lakes on the Guadalupe due to safety concerns. Lake McQueeny, Lake Placid, Meadow Lake and Lake Gonzales. I wonder if they will remove the dams and let the river naturally flow again? Most of those lakes are full of silt from runoff over the years and it will be a muddy mess for years.

I hate to see that as I have fished all those lakes except for McQueeny, which was blocked for public access years ago by the residents around the lake.

Don't hold your breath. I'd wager they'll, at most, check the remaining dams, and then let the lakes fill back up.

Article in the paper this morning says they are thinking of draining all the remaining lakes to facilitate inspection and repair, but also mentioned that they might be held liable for any damage/injury/death if another dam should fail.

What I want to see is the adjustment on lakeside property values in Comal county due to the Dunlap Dam failure---should be substantial for sure.
