I am trying to decide if I want to make the 1.5 hour run to
PK or just fish my local lake this weekend. I was originally planning to go to PK but I am concerned with the condition of the water. Can someone tell me the condition of the water. Do you think the water will clear up any by Saturday? I was plannin to put in at South D&D and fish the lower part of the lake.

I have not been on PK since March so I am going to have to work the rust off. If I make the trip down to PK I plan to start at the point across from the girls scout camp, and after that I do not really have a plan yet. I figure most the spots I would normally fish on the upper end will have pretty dirty water. If anyone is willing to provide some guidance on areas and artificial bait that has been producing the last few weeks I would appreciate it.

I hear it is pretty bad. They had 3 gates open and two floating gates for several days. That was movine ALOT of dirty water from the north end down to the south.

I texted my cousin who is next door to me in Gaines Bend a few mins ago. He's at the lake and said Chocolate Milk.... I will be there Thursday through the weekend. Hopefully the mud settles a little.

While I was having coffee on my deck I noticed that the color of Neely Slough matched the color of my coffee almost exactly.

I figure it's a week or more before the lake will be clear enough for me to catch bait. I was able to catch a few when I had bait but after three hours of looking and throwing I had less than a dozen. Normally, bait is one throw, count out three dozen and throw the rest back.

Catching all the bait in one throw is really good on pk.

Thanks for updates on the water condition. Think I am going to hold off until next weekend before I run down to PK. May do some yard work Saturday and take my Dad out to lake Arrowhead Sunday to catch some sand bass.

Captiancam: as an old guy with a bad shoulder my plan is always to see them in clear shallow water and ease the boat alongside slowly and drop the net over them.

Can't do it in this lake today. We don't have 6 inch visibility:

Kid Striper and myself fished PK on Wednesday, bait catching has never been easier. Water clarity at Neely's was close to terrible and we caught numerous short Stripers and some dink sandies. Marked good fish, no takers. PK fishin report shows that Neely's has gotten worse ! The majority of the fish marked were about 8 to 12 feet from the surface. Top water at night ???? Full moon of course.

Its going to take a while for that to clear up. We are going to be there in 10 days. Hopefully it will be better by then. Thanks for the pics TCK.

I crossed the Brazos at South Bend today and it had pretty good flow still. They are only letting a trickle out, so if we continue with sunshine and no more rain, a couple of weeks will be better.

I was there this weekend and it was as muddy as it's been in the last 30 years. I'm on the south end of the lake and there is about 6" visibility. I couldn't even see my green lights at night so we didn't even wet a line.
