Well, all three of those lakes got em from water being released from lakes upstream. Not much can be done about that.

The fact that lakes upstream have them and are releasing water. Seems pretty simple to me. Not sure what there is to question.

Because Bridgeport had/has them.....upstream from them.
It is logical based on their reproductive cycle/how they reproduce.

I'm going w/no "fisherman error" on this one since they were confirmed upstream way before. Seems most logical. Now don't ask me how they got in Bridgeport! :-)

Possibly the same way they got in a 45 acre lake in Sherman without a boat ramp near lake Texoma.

I'm sure every lake that flooded or has water from a another lakes spillway will soon have them.

Exactly

Now the TPWD is using this as way to fine people and collect revenue.

TPWD is becoming just another corrupt run department in Texas

I asked a game warden why they were doing this to boaters since there was no way to control the water coming from lakes upstream that had zebra mussels and that was the main source of contamination due to the flooding. He said it was something they could control. I told him that was a pretty sad answer.
