Never thought I could say that a couple of years ago.
Ray Roberts is showing a whopping 6.55 feet over.
Most are 3-4 feet over.

And Ray Roberts is gonna get higher with all the water still flowing in feeder creeks, my creek feeds into Spring Creek and it's still flowing strong, same with Buck Creek well away from the lake. Cedar Mills marina on Texoma sent us an email update since we keep boat there, basically 3 more feet and main road in will be closed and have to use alternate route from north. Much higher and electric may be disconnected to docks and adding length to dock ramps. Launch ramp closed. May end up being like a private lake for those of us with boats in slips if all ramps end up closed.

Yep, Hubbard Creek is still 29' low. Wish we could pump some of that extra water here.

Well, I just hope people dont complain. This time last year we were praying and practically begging the gods for rain. You get what you pray for, folks. We are blessed to have lakes too full around here. Better to be too full than empty.

Texoma is too full. Went up there today and all the boats ramps I saw were closed except the Corp ramp at the dam. There was a pile of flotsam (woodchips, plastic, Styrofoam, etc) about three foot high at the ramp and a thick skip of similar material for a about five feet out.

I came back home. Looks like another week without fishing.

Went out to Grapevine today and the ramps I usually use were completely flooded into the parking lots. Thankfully I was on the kayak!

People just cannot be happy about nothing it seems. You'd think they would be happy with water in the lakes now. Just give it time for all the floater to go down though. Fishing should pick up for sure and sure wish the west would fill.

I am elated about most of our lakes being full around here, I am not elated about the possibility of 10 inches of rain that is predicted for this week, could get really interesting.

It's always been that way!
There's a remedy to both the situations since you can't do anything about it, and that is....Just deal with it!

We'll take all you don't want down here in south Texas. Falcon and Amistad are down 25+, so send it this way.
