WFAA reporting today that the 2 teens "went overboard" while fishing below the PK dam on the Brazos. As usual, the details are few and I cannot tell if they were really in a boat or bank fishing.

A report I saw over the weekend said they were wading and went into the restricted zone and got caught in the current. But other than that there were no details so who knows if that is what actually happened. I do know those rocks below the dam are very slick so slipping and falling (and hurting yourself in the process) is very believable.

What I heard was they went into the restricted area and fell in. The BRA was releasing water with one floater, so there was some current. People always take risks every year fishing below that dam. I've done it before and it can end poorly. I've fished below PK, Bull Shoals, Beaver, Keystone, Eufaula, fort Gobson and Texoma. You can catch a lot of fish at times but you can die easily if the current gets you.


Don't fish when it's doing this
