What's the water on Dunlap and Placid looking like after the rains?
Extremely muddy. Will take a few days to clear up!
Dunlap seems to be a fairly stained lake even in the best of situations.
Do you see a wide variation in how long it takes for different water bodies to clear up? It almost seems to me you have to know each water body intimately in order to estimate how long it will take to clear. You also have to add in the other factors such as how long it has been since the last rain, how much rain fell, etc. Creeks like the Yegua which have hogs rooting on the banks can get very muddy and take over a week to clear. Likewise, some small lakes will clear within a couple of days or even get clearer if spring fed. I'm starting to add this information into my decision of where to fish on any given day. Fishing in muddy water with small flies is tough, LOL. So fishing spring fed ponds after a rain is usually my first choice.
PS: Great catch!!!
