Seems more than a few are not back up to speed yet but I recall 4-5 years ago the last time we got a lot of water in the lakes we had the same issues in the summer with super tough fishing. I recall though the fall was amazing. I bet the tide turns in another month or so and they all get back to fishing better. Some lakes are still releasing water which hurts but I bet we have a killer fall.

I think it has to do with how much new water and available cover there was, seemed like once you could get dialed in the water would drop another foot and have to search again.

I don't think its necessarily the fish aren't doing their thing and eating/hitting. Just the rapidly changing conditions are harder to keep up with.

As much water as the lakes got and as fast, I think it definitely makes things tough. It almost creates a whole new lake with as much water as some of them got. A few years back amistad flooded and we fished it that year and it was tough, but the lake stayed stable and the next year me and my buddy had 2 days of a lifetime. I think the high water messes with them for sure, plus it muddies up water, etc.

Mark, I know it is supposed to rain a lot again next spring but I think as long as the lakes dont drop 25 feet before then it won't affect the lakes as much. I think the Fall will be great and next year could be good.

My look on it is that they have/had a lot more and new cover and that has then spread way out and also lakes are being pulled down.

I can't find anything bigger than two pounds. Shallows are loaded with little ones. Big ones I think are still deep.

More water + more cover means the fish are spread out more.

IDK, between soo very much rainfall (thankfully) and now searing heat and very continued muddy waters, I just 'summerized' my rig at least until the heat subsides .... a little at least.
The fall, winter and hopefully coming spring are going to be MUCH better fishing.
God Bless
