Ok folks, I know the lakes in our area have been full (thankfully) and the spawn is almost upon us. Crappie are staged and/or moving into creeks. Now this week long rain even appears to have been substantial in amount and may affect the spawn (it already has in my area), at least if yesterday's fishing skunk is any testament.

So how much rain did you get? Please feel free to share any additional info, such as nearby lake, town, changes in water that you feel is relevant to the rain event that we are having.

I just checked my rain gauge and I only show 3 inches, so far...however, three tanks are running water over, the ditches are swollen and water in the creeks at both Aquilla and Navarro Mills are muddy rising...

Oh Yea, I forgot to add, that we have missed the heavier rains that have basically slid off to our northwest or southeast of my house.

Palestine.
I have a 6 inch rain gauge. It was full. Half the rain prob. Didn't get in the gauge. It was a blow. Palestine will never clear up. Most fish seemed to go straight to the grass . Clearest water was the 1st 6 inches.

5+ Here in south Rusk county. I don't think I can get to my place at Fork right now. A lot of road closers.
