How many days do you guys wait once the rain has stopped for things to settle and hit the water again?

Ohhh, here in about an hour. Two things that will help in these kind of conditions are vibration emitting baits (creature style baits with moveable appendages or use minnows if you prefer). The other tip would be to find the clearest water on the lake and see how it treats you.

What Lane said almost, he waits for the seats to dry. But info on baits and water is very good.

Sorry it took so long for me to answer, but I was fishing...carried my rain suit, but just toughed it out, without it...Oh Yea, what laner said on the bait/water...that's what I did and it worked...

On some of the lakes, especially smaller lakes that got a lot of water and opened their gates...it will slow the bite down...I normally refer to it as "giving them a headache"...I see that a lot on NM and Aquilla two lakes I fish regularly. So when that happens, I just go find another lake to invade, which is what I did today. Hope this information helps.

I'm not fishing this week in order to let everything settle. A couple more rounds coming and rain chances next week too. Hopefully we don't get much more rain.

I checked the NM dam area Monday evening and all the water was being released from the little discharge hole at the foot of the Gates.None of the big gates were open. Some guys were catching a few in the cove right behind the Dam office and at Wolf but it was slow going.

Probably holding it back on purpose, due to downstream considerations...at least that is my best guess..

This has officially been the worst year of fishing for me so far in my life. So, screw it. I'm going fishing Friday and who knows how I'll do. Probably crappie...pun intended. LOL

Went to Lavon yesterday and it'd been pouring. Found the clearest water away from any creeks. Caught some good ones. Bladed jig is a great option under these conditions. Noisy and flashy. They knocked the paint off it. roflmao
