Was there Mother's Day, they had just started the flow from Lake O' The Pines. I had maybe 2 bites in 2 hours of pre-fishing. Nothing after lunch, so abandoned plans and did something else. I don't know about "usual", because I have only been on the lake twice, but it is pretty bad. Depending how close the house is to Shady Glade, you should be able to get into the boat stall. Main lake was worse than the river, but the backwaters of the bayou and the main lake area we tried were THICK. Fewer pads, but that could've been changed in the last two weeks.
