Pretty muddy in main creeks. But pretty nice stained in areas out of the main flow.

Areas are muddy where the larger creeks run in, smaller creeks are what I call spinnerbait color. Main lake is about the same, slight stain. I don't know about 147 area but would assume it looks similar.

Good chance of heavy rains next 2 days also. So much for the clear spring. At least they will get another banner spawn

I have a feeling it's gonna be 2015 all over again. I went out on Rayburn once when it was 15 ft high in summer of 2015 with Scott Haasl and my dad and we caught 30 fish. Although the kicker was only 5 and three quarters. We stayed at Lakeview and the night before our trip we walked 20 ft to the flooded banks and caught a couple fish on a rage tail shad. Lots'O'fun!

I love it. I wish it would stay in the trees for the rest of they year. It doesn't make for the best fishing but it makes the lake that much better after a year or so.

Yup Toledo is done. What little grass was thriving probably is dying soon. Hopefully Rayburn doesn't come up much more. The high water is great for a protected spawn but the hydrilla is critical for them once they move out.

Also if we have that super high water again this year be careful not to bang your boat into one of those 130 foot high dead pine trees, one of those will wreck your day.

I shot this pic this afternoon of the water up north, looks like a floater in it too.

Good point in regards to the dead trees Ken. Hit one in 2015 in Mudd area and about 15 feet of the top of the tree came raining down in about 3 pieces. Pine shrapnel rained down on the rear of the boat. The cowling still bears the scar's from that incident.


Aren't they all "reaction" bites?

I hate to say it but Jaret is probably spot on about Toledo. Not to say anything negative about Jaret's comments because he is always spot on. The grass in Toledo (that is there) is going to be greatly impacted by the water levels and the high muddy water. I am going to make a statement and in doing so I want all to know I own a lake house right on the water. In my opinion around June they need to lower the lake to 162 (10" low) and let the vegetation regrow and get the new lake effect. I do realize it will hurt industry etc. When it refills it will be incredible for several years. That's what happened a few years ago. The lake has been trying to come back but if the water releases do not get it 3' low the grass will be gone again. I have talked to people today that say there is extremely muddy water where there has never been and I quote Chocolate Milk. I hope they keep releasing but after the effects south of the dam the last couple years that will probably not happen.
