It is not releasing at all right now, so I would say probably not.

wait a few days. They'll be opening up a few gates since Lavon is over 3ft high now.

Best to still wait a couple days after the gates are open in my opinion. Especially if you don't live close. I'm pretty sure that my favorite fish will be making their way up!!

I went down this morning .. People catching a couple sandbass, buffalo,and drum.. It was actually a lot slower than I thought it would be.. Didn't see any hybrids caught or crappie but I'm sure they are in there somewhere.. I was only able to stay for hour or so.. Long enough to find out that I have a leak in my waders!!

I'm sure they are there. Front may have slowed them a bit. It's going to be pretty chilly for the next several days. Lows around 40 coming up.

Sounds like Lavon Dam River will be the ticket this weekend. Rowlett will be a mess from the bridge Construction, and Lavon Dam is releasing at 792cfs right now. I bet it's on and popping over there. Any reports of the hybrids showing up over there?

792cfs is bareley moving, so nothing can make it up to the dam from the lake. I don't know if there are there anymore, but before they really showed up in RC, most of the hybrid pics you've seen from the area have come from below the 78 spillway...don't believe everything you see here...

Lots of competition to cast in the prime spots there though.

I typically fish just below 78. 792 cfs, is about 7 times more flow than RC. I would think they would be all up and down the river there. I don't like fishing the turbid water. I assume it's like RC with lots of holes down the way. More flow and cleaner water. Sounds like better fishing.

Yeah, it's way more flow that RC, just saying they can't make it up past the spillway at 78 to get to the main dam.
