It appears they are letting it roll out.. Level is pretty steady.. Once it floods south, they should close the gates...

Rayburn does not have the water shed that Toledo has.

..Or the floodgate capabilities and downstream area to drain it.

It's gonna rise. 166-168 if I'm guessing. The corp balances the flow from the power house, the flow from the Neches, and the flow from Dam B. It's a balancing act.

Break out the flipping gear if you haven't already.

It's a flood control lake, Toledo isn't. They can hold it like last spring. Toledo has to release, it's flooded there already.

I expect that Rayburn will have to stop all releases in the next day or two because the Neches is already flooding above Dam B. Due to the fact that dam A (rockland dam) was never built on the Neches, Palestine and dam B are the only flood controls on that side So Rayburn has to hold the Angelina water till the Neches can flow through. I also don't know if the record releases down the Sabine will effect them or not but the Neches does flow into Sabine Lake. I would look for a 2 to 3 foot rise on Rayburn and if the water is around the Sweet Gum Trees there will be bass there. It isn't going to help the Hydrilla that had started growing back and the early spawners beds will be under 2 to 3 more feet of water not sure how that will effect them. Hopefully the first wave had already finished and the fry are hatching.

I just looked at the accumulated rain fall totals for this week and it appears most of the Rayburn water shed was at the edge of the really massive rainfalls. Most fell to the east and northeast of Rayburn. But they still got about 2-1/2 to 3" according to the National Weather Service. I sure some areas got heavier ran than this, but that was the region average.

Looking at the lake level chart, it's jumped from .19 above pool this morning, to .49 at lunch to 1.24 now. That's a foot since breakfast, and 9 inches since lunch. 3 feet above by Saturday is possible.

Back to flipping the pines!

6 feet above pool on The Bend is a record breaking situation. Rayburn went to 10+ feet over just last spring.

The 2 lakes are completely different animals. Take lines, permanent structure allowances, etc.
