Falcon Lake Report
Thursday, August 4, 2016
Another day on the water for me and man, did the weather "people" get the wind wrong today. Highs for the wind were suppose to blow SE 6 - 7, but it blew upward to 15 or so, and then gradually drop back down to 8 - 10.
Air temps were no different - low 80's at take off and about 104° later in the afternoon. The 104° does not include the index, that is just the heat.
Water temps continue to stay about the same as the last few days -- 85° to 91°.
This poor lake continues to drop everyday, but it sure hasn't hurt fishing here on Falcon. Actually, I guess you can look at the fact that with the lake falling, these fish will become more concentrated in areas.
Our level today is 268.41-- 34.7% full.
The Double "R" is continuing to fish with the same pattern for several weeks now, we are throwing plastics, (mostly Texas Rigs), and some moving baits.
Today we boated 54 fish, with 33 keepers and our big fish being around 5#. Our best 5 weighed 20# - 21#. We did not fish a full day, as we got off of the water around 1:30.
I am off tomorrow, and I'm not sure if I am going out or not, as the wind is expected to blow 20 out of the southeast.
I do have a trip on Saturday, so that should be the next report provided.
