Sorry not much to report on other than water quality.
The area near south shore boat ramp and I guess what you would call lower end of lake looks best. I tried for a few hours and managed three dinks.
South shore ramp closed. Good Luck. Staghorn Restaurant still best food in town.

I went a few weeks ago, did pretty decent. Hydrilla was getting thick, real thick. Be prepared to fight it if you run down to 4 fingers.

It's not 100% of the shoreline on the entire lake, but it is on a lot of the lake. From the places I went I'd say about 50% (maybe more) of the shoreline had grass. Some real thick, some in clumps. The lake is dropping and the hydrilla should be matted on top now.


And I'll also add that I did not catch a single fish from the grass, I'd almost swear that the fish don't use it.

If you get tired of fighting the wind and decide to head up the river, make sure to take it at an idle. I was idling up and hit a big mofo tree, whole freaking boat came to a screeching halt. There's some big bad trees up the river.

Crazy being the only boat, I remember days where you had to park way up the parking lot and both ramps would be packed. A lot harder to fish spots back then.

Some spots of the watershed (mainly around Pearsall) got 8" of rain this morning with more rain in the forecast the next 5 days. Going to take some major flooding to fill Choke, but should still see a slight rise with just what they got today.

Man I hope so.

I'd love to see it about 10' low, just gotta have that hurricane come up.

Just amazes me! Been fishing Choke since she was 1st flooded ! We've had good years and bad . frown - Thru the last 30 years she has gone up and down with the water levels fluctuating from releases at the Dam to flooding in her watershed to the NW along with an occasional Hurricane or Tropical depression! This recent rain pattern was incredible as I watched the Frio get pounded hammer . Some of our posts in the last few years have been wondering ?---- Where the H-- is the water going ? Well if she doesn't catch any and rise from this last flooding-- I'm gonna agree with those that posted in the past !!! "There must be a hole in the Frio water Basin " flush_2
Rio


My stringer is getting there!!

Call me a "tin foil hat" person, but look at google earth and all those wells around the lake... wouldn't take a whole lot to directional drill into the lake for water.
