Heard that the crappie are moving onto flats. Folks are catching them 15-20 ft on minnows around brush. Maybe the pre spawn is cranking up.

Lake is up over 20ft right now. Time to get in the those trees. Anyone know about any ramp closures?

Went out yesterday evening for about 3 hours, I am not messing around when I tell you that the water came up almost 8 inches while we were there. Spillway is open as far as the corp is allowed to open it and it's still rising. Ramp one is about the only ramp open on the lake. Avoid Patman until it is on the fall in my opinion...at least back down into the 230's. Water is currently around 244. 225 is normal pool.

Lake has only come up .5 ft in the past 12 hours, so that's an improvement. I suspect that it will be on the fall by the end of the week if the rain stays away which could be good for some April fishing...however it's supposed to rain again this weekend. Why can't it just rain 1 inch per week all year long??? Preferably on Thursdays...At night.

I called the Corps yesterday and ramp 1 remains to be the only ramp open on the lake. It's dangerous getting in there. Stay away from the left side of the ramp if you go. Railing from a submerged dock is a problem.

I will continue to post reports of what I am able to come up with for us far northeast Texas folks. I'm bound and determined that others who live up this way will join in on Lake Wright Patman. Our options are limited up here without going to Arkansas or driving over an hour.

Isn't this fairly normal for this lake? The last time I went crappie fishing there in the spring it was up high and we caught em.



I hate photobucket.

I don't know if you can call it "normal" but the lake does flood easily due to the fact that the red is essentially the outlet and Shreveport is downstream. You can't open the gates all the way and let her rip or the Red floods and then Shreveport follows. The lake was built by the corp of engineers as a flood control reservoir so it serves its purpose but the fishing is tough when it's 25 ft high.

Well the lake is back on a sudden rise. No idea where this water is coming from or if they closed the gates slightly but we've come up another foot in the past day. I know Caddo Parish in LA and the Bossier area has experienced some flooding so maybe they are trying to slow that down a bit. Good luck trying to find an open ramp.

It's at 247.5 now or 27 feet into the flood pool.

Maudlin lake area...and Kelly creek area, and old red water bridge area was always good spring time fishing...not real sure you could get to them for a while though...
