BRA is letting some water out now to get ahead of what's coming. I saw that Parker county has a flood advisory for all those living near the river. Here's some pics by the 16 bridge and the dam. They had the bridge closed most of the day but opened it after closing one flood gate. Water is right at the bottom of the bridge now.
Looking downstream on the bridge. Makes me nervous stopped on that 75 year old bridge with that much water pushing against it.
They have two flood gates open and four floaters. Locals were telling me that the white flecks coming down the water fall were fish. I hope they are wrong. Already people fishing down at the dam.
Water down at the dam is getting muddy in spots. With those gates open looks like all the clear water is headed to Granbury.
Water is very muddy coming out of Neely Slough. Can't see from the pic I took from the observation point but this one from my balcony shows the color well
Lake is totally full. Ramp really looks good.
Swimming area is totally full now. Those bad goat heads that grew on the sand during the drought are now 7-10 feet under water. There's a real nice drop off at the end of that sand that should hold fish now that it's 15 or so feet under water.
