This whole not getting to Fish recently thing has really almost killed me literally. I ended up in the ER last night dealing with people that don't want to do work right my blood pressure was 212/130 at one point with a pulse of 132. I am headed for water probably this afternoon to fish this evening and tomorrow but everything around me is kind of blown out. So I was trying to figure out what Brokenbow looks like right now I might just take off would just like to know the flows and what the fishing is like thanks for any help.

Thanks bud but I'm staying local now. Been to hard to sleep with all that's going on. If I was going would have been there now. But after looking around it is on the near agenda for sure.

LMF was pretty blown out this morning. We fished the first half of spillway creek- anything below had so many feeder creeks pouring in that it was too high and muddy for us. Others may have had some success, but we didn't try.

That forum on the Beavers Bend Fly Shop normally provides the most current information as to when those blasted 2 flood gates on Spillway creek will be shut. Looks like the Powerhouse Generators in Zone 2 are repaired and that is generally where water is released from the lake. A very crazy year up there.

The rain Sunday morning blew out the river for Sunday. It was churning.

It's still a little deep for wading....I had to hold my arms up a few times. LOL!

Fishing Friday for a couple hours was good. I caught my first 20" +. Followed that up with a keeper walleye (another first). Before those fish I caught a decent brownie. So Friday I completed the LMF Grand Slam. thumb

Saturday morning it was decent during the morning fog and drizzle(I really only managed one, I couldn't stick a hook in my finger if I tried). Then it got nice and sunny. The crowds soon followed. So did the sunburns. We did find one hole to share between 3 of us late that afternoon and I stuck a nice 17" (approximation because fish jumped out of net before measurements and a picture....fish was beautiful salmon color stripe, pretty fish, sad I didn't get a pic.) on Tenkara rod. My second trout on my new rod and technique. I am addicted to it now. If I'm not throwing a big streamer, this will be in my hand at LMF. 17" Bow bent that rod around my net man's head. shocked

Sunday I only managed 2, and one got off. Both brownies. That was just as the rain was ending. Fished a couple hours and packed up camp.

All in all a decent trip, weather held out for the most part. We paid for the nice weather Saturday when it rained for over 6 hours Sunday morning. No womins, no kids. Can't beat that with a stick.

Bass bustin really been looking at those bb would be a lot of fun with those rods. I had this telescopic cane pole growing up that was 14 foot and fishing the private lakes catching pound to 2 pounds blue gill that thing was a riot. Those rods really remind me of that I have been anxious to try one. Glad y'all enjoyed the trip. I was going to go up there for sure next Sunday but depending on Wednesday at Texoma will decide that.

Memorial Day Weekend is coming, I bet the crowds will be there in Groves. frown

I might sneak out Friday before everyone gets there. Day Tripper! smile

One last trip before the crowds get too bad.

BTW Snakes are out. Watch your footing.

The whole park might be one river by then if the rain does not stop. I pray warm water is not forced in wipping the stream. Wish they would have continued the low spillway flow. Way better than massive culverts that disappear to never be seen again!!! Hope it just finds a way to stop and pick back up in late July.

Last I checked Broken Bow Lake was at 88% of flood pool with rain forecasted for like the week straight. Plus they've only been able to generate sporadically with all the flooding that's been going on downstream. Why they shut the flood gates and kept them closed is anyone's guess, but at this point it's looking like they're gonna have to blow the park out big time now.

Red River will crest Monday. I doubt they will release until it's down. They are saying it will flood lot of land. This weekend, that river was UP and churning.

The gauge at dekalp had been going down several days I wish they would have brought it back up to help get some I the water out because it is really going to do some damage now it looks like.

From Eddie at the fly shop (on the fly shop message board), it sounds like the corp won't open the flood gates until at least Tuesday because of water levels downstream. It also sounds like they are going to try to avoid opening the spillway floodgates if at all possible, but if the lake gains 3 more feet in elevation that may be inevitable.

It's not going to matter what they do for those down stream if texoma is three feet over the spillway. I am saying a prayer for those down stream.
