Yes, our tournament cancelled due to it. I believe it was around the 51 bridge area.

I'm just curious why you would cancel a tournament because of it.

I think the fear with this weather that it would only get worse. I need all the help I can get so I'm glad the decision was made.

I live on the Lake , three days ago from the bend to 51 bridge there were hundreds of gulls and other birds gorging themselves on floating dead fish. i reached out to Brazos River Authority and TPWD this was there response :

" There was an golden alga bloom over the weekend that resulted in a fish kill incident at one area of Lake Granbury. Texas Parks and Wildlife warned us a couple of weeks ago that the conditions were ripe for golden and that samples were showing high concentrations. As of today, we have not had any recent fish kill reports. If you would like to learn more about golden algae, we have more information available on our website: https://brazos.org/About-Us/Environmental/Species/Harmful-Algal-Blooms/Golden-Alga

Fishing has been very tough (for me anyways) on that end . With that damn algea , its a ghost town around there. TPWD told me the recent cold, icy conditions actually help spread the golden algea. unknown how bad it will get. hopefully its a small flare up.

I saw some dead fish this passed weekend up in the northern areas. Got reports from other guys that past 51 was a graveyard of fish. Luckily most of what I saw were drum floating.

I think they would be worried it would be taken to another lake via a boat that wasn't completely drained

But it's a tournament. Shouldn't matter how good or bad fishing is. Most weight still wins
