Well it looks like SOME rain for the rest of the week. My home lake(Belton) is still very low, but with Proctor nearing normal pool I'm sure they will open gates that feed the Leon R. into Belton. Hoping to fish water that has been dry ground for years!!!! Further north, seems most of the Trinity R. basin has seen far more water than needed. Maybe you guys got the ol' "be careful what you pray for" thang!!!! Sure is a big difference from 2 months ago!!! Still....that Colorado R. basin thing is in need!!!!!!


Looks like most of us will have some "down time" from fishing for awhile!!!!

....came in from Okieland Wednesday and noticed all the debris in the median. Seems the water was rushing across H35 in that area. Apparently it had taken out some fence. There was a cow in the median!!! eeks

Hopefully the lakes and rivers can stay full for awhile. This wet winter and spring has really helped. thumb

More rain expected later in the day today. Some possibly heavy. Though some lakes appear to be leveling out, things could change again by tomorrow!

Canyon has risen and is about 5' low which is good for that lake. All of the area creeks,ponds,and rivers are in excellent condition. Choke Canyon is still low but has risen during the past two weeks. Amistad and Falcon are still low but have also benefited from the recent rains. Looking at the 10 day forecast there is a chance of rain all ten days. thumb


Side Note. As for Medina Lake and Travis Lake it will take a hurricane to help those lakes out. taz

Banger, Texoma is now at 633.23 as of 5 am this morning. Normal pool is 617. So we are already 16+' above normal and still rising. Plus, we got hit pretty good again last night so it should keep rising for awhile. Pretty awesome seeing your home lake 16' above where you've even seen it before. Bad news is there is a lot of big trees and dangerous logs floating everywhere and some ramps are closed. I haven't launched my boat since all this started but, hope to real soon.

Crazy....CRAZY!!!! Rain again!!! Good news for my home lake(Belton)....upstream Proctor is full and rising. If they start releasing water say tomorrow...it is good news for us!!! Once again....the weather was not completely discriminate! Look at the lakes that didn't need anymore water!!!!!! All I can say is there is going to be a lot of fresh water going into the gulf!! eeks

Checking the seven day forecast we are going to have yet another "Major Rain Event" starting Sunday and going on through Tuesday. Estimated rainfall is anything from 2 to 5 inches of rain. hmmm
