Do you think that the lock and dam between Centerville and Crocket will be fishable this year from the bank. I know that the flooding last year washed away some of the banks and wasn't for sure to make the trip or not.

I drove by there today on the way to Centerville.
I stopped in & talked to a couple guys & they said it's very very slow.
There were only about 6-7 people fishing.
I watched them for awhile & only a few were catching anything & what they caught were thrown back.
Maybe in a month the whites will show up in some numbers.
Water looked OK though.

On a side note don't expect the owners to be open much at the store.
They say they're cutting grass & weeds & cleaning up the place but, it's still the same as it's always been.
Lots of trash, which really isn't the owners fault as some of the hillbilly trash folks don't know what it means to carry out their trash.

Almost forgot but, the banks are very steep.
Be careful if you go.

According to USGS the river has already risen 1-1/2 feet in just 8 hours.
Water flow is at about 3500cfps.
Normal is about 1100cfps

There's 3 more days of hard rain coming & that will most likely go to 8000+ cfps with a gage height of 12+ feet.
That means it would be 3-4 weeks before it levels off to normal level of 8-8.5 feet.
That could be enough to kill the whitebass run at the L&D.

Amen to that.
Too much can go wrong at the wrong time.

On a side note it looks like the flow has leveled off at 4000cfps with a gage height of about 10ft.
If it doesn't get any worse & it starts to retreat back to normal we might be spared.

The worse thing we might have to deal with is the cold temps that's coming for the next 2-3 weeks.
Just have to wait & see what happens.
