It's almost full! I think it came up 4' a few weeks ago so if I remember correctly it's only down 85' now (give or take a few feet.)

Most the the rains have been west or south of the watershed so no, the lake has received squat as mentioned above.

Medina have a very small and unique watershed. The valleys and hills above the lake is not very large. Kind of like a small funnel that starts up around the Tarpley area and the small Town of Medina where the rain has to fall in order to run off into the Medina river which fills the lake.
It can rain just a few miles either side or above that area and not a drop will end up in the river.
When a system camps out over that area it can put a very Large amount of water into that funnel and bring the lake up overnight.
I've seen it happen several times since the early 70's.

I see too many landowners on the Medina river placing large cement dams across the river in their river access.
Most people with land on the river think they own their part of the river too.
The land owner will tell you as long as there is a trickle of water going over their dam they are legal..
Go look at Deer Creek Camp. and other areas like that and you will see.Then they say they have permits to have the dams..We need a lot of water to fill up the underground water aquifers up first ,then the Medina lake will start gaining water back if San Antonio will stay out of it. 2cents

We are going to need "forty days and forty nights" to get her back up again and if that happens lots of fingerlings from TP&W.

Where would you launch from? I'm 20 mins from the lake and I've never fished it before. Thanks in advance.

Yup,they are cleaning up around there and mowing. Betting some will try this weekend. As far as ramp,I bet it's back to 4x4 only. I'm planning on trying Sunday but we'll see. Hope to drive by and see some empty boat trailers before the trip. Please post if anyone goes.

I have heard there are not a lot of game fish left. It will be curious to see how if fishes when it comes up. It needs another 20 ft before I will try. The last time I fished there it was about 50 ft low. It's about 70ft low now.

Kayak people been doing well. You'd have to think recruitment is null,never is good in that lake anyway. But surely with the bait balled up,there are some nice ones left.
