It's open, launching from the parking lot at Dutch branch.

I'm sure it is, I haven't been out in several weeks. It's 15ft high right now. Quite a few people launching and catching fish. Just to big of a pain to launch my falcon cause it takes a lot of water because it's I/O

I ended up going to BB last night. I have never seen the water that high. There are two temporary ramps in the parking lot area. And they even somehow built a courtesy dock for launching. It wasn't too bad, actually. Funny thing is, the Marina building is not reachable by foot--you have to launch and then motor over to the Marina building.

Also, there is lots of floating debris. Especially on the east side around Richardson slough. I did see a huge floating log, probably 12 foot long, floating right in the middle of the lake.

Be careful at Benbrook.

We launched Friday and fished close to where Dan was fishing with live bait. We did not get any shad and threw everything in the tackle box at them and they would not bite. I was fishing with someone that knows the lake really well.

Was that you in the huge CC with strike king on the side? If it was, that was me leaving when you were launching.
