I have a few picture for you and know this morning they had the flood gates open 22' and I have never seen them at more than 9' which was last spring when we got so much rain. Also as of right now we have had 16'21" of rain in less than 48 hours.

Also will post a write up about this below pics.

Okay guys took this yesterday because the lake had already come up like a foot and I was showing it was back over my little deck next to my boat. Also notice how the wall comes up a little more than a foot still.


Then yesterday here are the pics and feel sure you can see the difference, LOL!

OMG With that release, that will flush things out. Folks living below in flood plain areas are in a mess most likely.

I don't remember ever seeing the gates open more than 9' and that was last year when we had all that water. When I saw 22' open on all 9 gates, I knew the poor people South of here are really in for it as they have never seen the Sabine this high! Just think about the people just a short ways down like around Burkville as they are only like 10 miles from the dam. Now down in Deweyville they have like 2 days before it hits, but still they are in for it!

Well good luck TroyKing your gonna need it! Sorry this is happening right now. I was just ready for the crappie and that seems hard now. The big bass had been being caught almost every day and sometime more than one over 10 pounds.

Find you a little creek flowing in to the lake and catch some whiskered fish.

Chicken livers ain't that expensive.
