Not sure what the frio got but the nueces rose 12ft in 2 hours this morning. Frio looks like it could've got just as much. Hopefully it did and choke gets a needed rise.

Seems like every time I think Choke will get some water from a good rain it never happens!
This time it will be interesting to see if it will happen.

I think itll soak in before it ever gets to Choke, they need the entire region from north to south to get pounded. One of these days....maybe.....or I might die first....

highly doubt it. Choke needs Tilden to flood, Jourdanton to flood, and concan to flood for a week straight to stand a chance. Either that, or a hurricane.

So far the Frio at Derby is 0 cfs, Frio at Tilden is O cfs, and San Miguel is O cfs. It's raining just west of there now though.

I don't see how the frio isn't rolling too. The nueces where that campground footage came from isnt far from concan to the west. That area got 7"-9" in a short period

When Choke got the big jump in water level right after it was opened, it a Tropical Storm.

It takes a ton of rain with run off in the Nueces and all the big creeks and drains near by.

I'm not going to say it won't fill again in my life time, but it filled about 10 years quicker than it was supposed to because of the Localized rain and tropical storms. I stared fishing it as soon as it opened. We had some serious rain back then. I lived in Corpus in those days and its never rained in the area that much since then.


Thanks, Billy

Derby, Tilden, and San Miquel are a couple of days, water wise, from where the flood around Concan was. There may be some water flowing through those gauges later in the week. Need a lot more though for it to make a difference for Choke. Will happen some day!

Relying on hurricanes and tropical storms to fill and maintain water levels, like Ivie and Choke Canyon do, is never a good recipe for a reservoir.

Agreed, but Choke was mainly built for flood control anyways. Just doesnt seem to rain in the right spots anymore.

The big rain was on the Nueces watershed, really don't see much coming for Choke.

I've pretty much given up on Choke getting a beneficial rain. It's been too long for it to not happen. There have been several systems in recent years that have painted every corner of the area except right where it needed to be painted. It's almost like Tilden and the surrounding areas have an invisible dome over them. I hope I'm wrong though.

I am pretty sure Choke was built for city of Corpus, Three Rivers, Beeville, and Mathis water supply.
The levee that was constructed around Three Rivers was for flooding.
Although many years ago when choke overfilled water was let out and some downstream houses did flood due to the release.
Just wishing it would refill before I'm to old to enjoy it again.

Choke was built by the city of Corpus Christi for water supply. They knew it would be iffy at best due to the small drainage area. It has to rain 10 to 14 inches between Choke and Hondo for it to catch any water. And looking at stream flows today, it didn't happen again. Chokes drainage is short and narrow.
