Now I'm wondering how the floods might be affecting the spread of Zebra Mussels. Thoughts?

My understanding is they can't stick to anything in fast moving water. With all the gates open on the lake north to south I would say there headed down the line.

And TPW will continue to fine us if we don't follow their rules, makes sense to me. . .

I wonder if the TPW Clean, Dry & Wipe law is enforceable. If the COE has to dump water with Zebras for flood control, how can individuals be fined? It seems like an unenforceable law. Another gripe is the 300M pipeline from Texoma. I'm glad we had it last year, but such a huge expense and now we have Zebras running down the Red.

If you don't have common sense. you have politicians & government.

Most laws like the Zebra law that is not only not enforceable but stupid. It is not about the spread of Zebras, it is about a lot of stupid stuff coming from politicians, money. If I let my lower unit down for 10 minutes and then pick it up and go home. When I get home I let it down to park my boat and water runs out. Water is in my carpet, water lines to my live wells, where do these people come from. Was at Texoma driving around there is water coming over and threw the dam everywhere. Every lake below Texoma, Ray Roberts and any other lake below them will have mussels in it before long. It is not how they affect the fishing or people that put there boats in and out. It is about the pipelines and peoples boats that they leave in Marinas. Like I said at first, its about the money. We need to learn to live with them or figure out how to get rid of them. I have seen several post where fish eat them. Not seen it yet, but I hope too.

I think it is a problem but I do not know how to stop it. I will let the scientists and higher ups investigate it. For right now I will wash my boat and trailer and do just my small part.
