Looks like Grandbury is releasing the perfect amount of water this morning at 460cfs. Should make for a great afternoon and evening tomorrow, for those who will use it.

Well, they didn't release all day yesterday. Just enough to flush the river a bit. Hope they keep it up! Cause I hope to go fishing next weekend, weather/wind, and another obstical permitting.

Looks like Grandbury has been releasing water since Friday afternoon. Shows to be releasing now. But talked with someone who lives on the river below the dam. And they said it wasn't flowing right now. Maybe the data servers took the weekend off?


And I'm free again. Got Doctor's release Friday afternoon! Back to work tomorrow.

Whitney dam is sill releasing water at 275 cfs. Good time to take a rod with a pop-n cork and jig to go catch some sandies or striper off the catwalk on the office side.

Anybody need-n minnows, I have two doz in the refridge for free. They will be good for about a week to 10 days in there. My bait tank is empty at the present, or I'd put them in there.

If you have 2 doz. Does that mean you didn't catch any fish?

I bought 4 doz. And only opened one bag.


Didn't catch as many fish on minners as I did jigs yesterday. But had them just in case. Went a couple times last year. And all they wanted was minners. They wouldn't touch a jig hardly. Caught one fish on a jig per 20 on minners. Having left over minners is why I started a bait tank. Had goldfish in it up till Dec, from last April. They were small ones to start. They got as big as my hand by Dec.

If I can get my taxes done by Friday, I might go try to wet a hook again sometime this weekend.

The fish are biting, and there's hogs to be kill-t. Gotta go!

The striper were biting on the lake yesterday. As usual with stripers, overcast skies helped. I was trolling in the state park/Whitney Creek/Towash Creek area. Caught 9 total, smallest was 20" and the biggest was 26".
Had two rods out- one with a 5" white curly-tail grub on a 5/8 oz head. The other was a 5" chartreuse sassy shad on a 1 oz head.
8 of the 9 fish were caught on the white curly-tail, which is kinda surprising. I've done well with the chartreuse sassy shad before.
Might've had something to do with the depth. The 5/8 oz jig was running at a depth of about 10' or so. The 1 oz jig was between 15' and 20', depending on speed.

Was good to get into some nice fish. I was out on Saturday, same area, and only caught 1.
Can't wait for the shad spawn.

Congrats on the stripers RoadScholar.




I hope to get out Saturday, if I get everything together. As the wind is looking favorable that day. Sunday, not so much.

Thanks TG, it sure was fun.

Did pretty good wading the Nolan yesterday. That last rain brought the flow at Blum up to about 180 cfs.
Went down fast though, yesterday morning it was at 28 cfs. Caught around 35 sand bass, brought home 19. Gonna fry up some of those for dinner tonight

I'm hoping to get the boat out Saturday too. First half of the day looks like it might be tolerable wind-wise.

I haven't been in a couple of weeks because I've been out of state for work. But I fished on April 14 and really got into the stripers surface-schooling. Had my 5 keepers in no time, and ended up catching 31 total. (one was a big sand bass) No big ones, but no small ones either. Pretty much all 19 to 21 inches.
Really great day. Whitney creek/Towash creek area.

I'm back home now and planning to get out a day or two this week, if the wind is tolerable.

I heard they have been do enviormental studys on construction impact down stream from the bridge. So that when the new bridge is built on the south side of the old bridge, they will have something to measure against.

The fish are biting, and there's hogs to be kill-t. Gotta go!

No telling how many years they will take to build a new bridge. Thanks Mike!

If you go to the lake this weekend, please, please wear a life jacket ! And a kill switch if you're driving a boat . There'll be lots of crazy people out there on the water, all times of the day. And night.

And.....the Brazos lake levels continue to drop. How low with they go? I don't know. The little rain we got Friday evening didn't do much.

7 of 12 lakes on the Brazos ACE sight are 3 foot or more below normal. All lakes on the Brazos are below normal. Colorado River system is really hurting bad too. The W lake, even though low, is still in pretty good shape, considering they used to keep it 9-11 foot below normal. Good news is Grandbury and PK are flushing the river with light releases about once a week. A lake is a shallow lake. It don't take much to make it flood. And a few feet low like now can really make a difference.


W lake is 3.99 feet low, at the moment.



A lake is 3.12 feet low at the moment.

If you go out this weekend in a boat or personal water craft, be sure to wear a PDF with a kill switch attached to your self. The lake will be crowded due to other lakes being low. And please don't boat and drink.


Me? I ain't going anywhere near the lake on a holiday weekend, anymore.
