Alright guys if you've been keeping up with James FLT report you'll know that with all the rain in Mexico and in Laredo we've finally got some much needed water flowing down the Rio grand. Its safe to say that we have gotten more that 3 Feet by now.

We are sitting at 266.66, or 34.54 feet low.


So here a few pic of what its looking like down at falcon.

Yes, water is coming in fast from the Salado and the Rio Grand so there is plenty of debris in the water on top part of the lake.

Yes state park boat ramps are working.

Yes the old Veleno bridge is no longer visible

This is great news! Was just down there a few weeks ago and ol' Falcon was a sad sight to see. Hoping it rises more!

It will definitely rise more. Rio is running 43,000 cubic feet per second in Laredo. That water hasn't even gotten close to the lake yet.

I'd take a guess at what we are going to catch.. But..

There is also a lot of water in the Salado river between us and Don Martin..

And that is a big variable I have no grip on.. No gauges over there..

But I think it is safe to say that we could catch another four or five feet.. Maybe more!!

We'll see!

Sad thing is that will only bring it up to last years level with Amistad being 9 feet lower than last year.

There were more boats at the dam when I got off work today than I've seen in a couple months!

Caught three more feet yesterday. Probably at least 3 more feet in the river yet to come.

It's a foot higher than it was last year at this time so should have at least a year of water on state park ramp.

The water demand should be slowing in the valley as we approach the Fall.. If there is such a thing down here..

We are up 10.16 feet since Tuesday morning.. We are still on a pretty good rise, but I see it slowing slightly this morning.. There is another push of water in the river still above Laredo..

We are at 273.26, and when it is all said and done, I believe we will settle out around 278 or so.. But that is just my guess.. It will take a week or longer till all the water reaches the lake.

It is still raining west of Eagle Pass.. And all that water will end up here.. If a little more rain falls we could make 280.

All the creeks and arroyos that that have had water pushed into them by the rising river will have to drain back into the river channel..

And provided that we don't dump any water, which I can't see happening, we should be catching water for at least the next ten days..

Lots of smiling faces in Zapata..
