Has anyone been to the Grasslands lately? Was curious about the lake levels ...I was thinking they caught some water in a couple of these storms. I caught quite a few crappie out of Windmill several years ago along with some nice largemouths. Dan's pond was another favorite but I think I read on here that it completely dried up. It would be nice to get the Fatcat back out there if there is some water.

Regarding Windmill

It is still listed on the website as Fly Fishing only but from several years of fishing I can tell you that it is not enforced. Anytime they post a notice on the board there it gets torn down. I was even told by some teenagers out there one time that the Game Warden doesn't even enforce it with them. The good news is I hardly ever see anyone out there bait fishing unless they are catfishing. Most non flyfishing people I've seen out there were spin fishing and doing catch and release which is more important than the flyfishing only regulation.

Black creek never went fully dry. Dan's pond did as someone mentioned as did Berkely pond. Shame...Dan's pond was full of 3-5's and Berkely was the gem for panfish. Since Tpwd does not stock these ponds regularly it looks like it will be a few years before we can enjoy fishing them again. Clear Lake is still low but has gone up, maybe 4 feet low now. Last week is was muddy as all get out though.

Oh and cottonwood lake went up. Water is still not up on the boat ramp very far but at least that little hump off to the side is surrounded by water again. Someone had dumped some christmas trees right by the ramp last time I went out there. Might be worth a try here soon!

Rhodes lake is also up, fullest its been since the summer of '11. That poor lake has been slowly losing water for the past four years. How it never went dry is beyond me. Bright side is there are some good road beds now underwater from when it was so low and people literally could drive from the parking area to the back creek.

Anyone having any luck out there recently? I went last Sunday and didn't get any bites at Clear lake, water was still cold. I don't have electronics so can't be specific on temp.

Rhodes Lake temp was 56 a few weeks back, imagine its only gone up since then and the bite was real good there. I was in boat and caught a few but I saw two guys fishing from shore on dam and they each caught at least 10 in a two hour time period. With Clear lake being a bit stained I imagine it might still be cool, but it should be heating up this month. Try creeks first then protected coves.

All lakes were spilling into their respective spillways as of this post. Not sure how long water will stay up but as long as the rain keeps-a-coming we should have some prime cover for fishing. Last time I can recall all lakes in the grasslands doing this was in early 2010 smile

Anybody around the lbj grasslands area know if the weekend rains filled up all the lakes there in the grasslands. Could really use a trip to clear lake or black creek lake this weekend. I would imagine if clear lake got the rains that Denton got that the pier would just about be under water by now. lol
