Went out to Pk to see what kind of damage was done by the storms and view the lake at -5 ft.
I've only been fishing Pk since 2011 so I've never seen it this high. PK folks can sympathize with
Texoma as the power is cut to the Marina and the walkway to the ship store and courtesy dock at
the cliffs is flooded. Supposed to fix that Next week as memorial day is coming. Water down at
the dam and in neely slough is not muddy yet.
This is what we had last year
Now it looks like this at - 5 feet.
Muddy as the Mississippi up lake. Here's a shot I took from the road across the hills. Most of this was sand bars a week or so ago. They have a lake now.
Went up to the Brazos at 1287 bridge to see what was coming. It's a torrent. Evidence there that the river was out of banks as both fields on either side were flooded. Sorry for the bad pic but no place to stop on that bridge.
Rock creek now has water. Here's the view from the 533 bridge. This is normally a clear stream when
it has water, so I assume this is nasty stuff coming down from the salt fork of the Brazos that backed up into Rock creek.
I used to fish below this bridge and catch some nice LM Bass. Gonna be tough in the future with all those
flooded Mesquite trees. For sure I won't put an inflatable in there. Bass tournament guys are going to have to stop complaining about no structure on Pk. Snagging an old flooded Yucca will add some additional
difficulty in lure retrieval.
Looks like we'll have a swimming beach this year at the cliffs. Not sure how all those goat heads that grew on that exposed sand will work out. I will advise keeping flip flops on. There's also a very steep drop off that was caused by wave erosion that the BRA would not allow to be fixed.
At this point, I assume I know nothing about this lake now. it's a new deal with all this water.Lot's more on the way I'm told.
