Caught my deepest bed fish on amistad. 18' of water within sight of the black brush ramp. Had some amazing topwater days there.

It’s 43’ low now. Yes it can be protected, unless he runs out by the dam and a front blows in. He just needs to pay good attention.

Amistad is always windy in the spring. If Box Canyon is still open, that’s a big safer area from fronts. Cruise up to Cow Creek and look at the bluff walls.


If you need fishing tips, don’t ask me, I suck there! And pretty much everywhere else, lol.
Oh yeah, I was getting my dry [censored] lakes mixed up. Could be 50 low by spring.



Lol! I think Choke might hit 50’ by next summer. Why won’t those Houston guys share their rain with us. wife

The beauty of that lake is worth the trip. Fishing is just a bonus. My last trip was 10 years ago, I gotta get back down there before I die.

Whatever you do, do NOT go into the cove where they have the donkey show! You’ll end up being the donkey...

Yup, that's the main reason I wanna make a trip down there.. I'm not expecting to catch a lifetime bass.. I just wanna drop a boat in and explore the lake, looks beautiful from the pics!

If you can make the LONG run from Diablo to Panther Cave you need to check it out.

Lol, not in his boat. The cartel will have him squealing like a pig before he even gets past Zeuber Bend.

Evans can't get past the last curve. California Crk dead. Find grass fish will be there. Box is good till 63 i believe with the ramp they have now. Right now most are fishing pretty deep. Ledges/drops etc. 35 ft is common. Still some good ones being taken out regularly.

Damn.....I was reading 60 miles round trip! But that looks awesome...and Id be down! Can the run to it get sketchy? Figure I can do it midweek as a bit of a break from fishing if its a safe trip in the tracker.
