Let's say it contributed to what made Fork so special. Fork was the golden child of the TP&WL. Bois D'Arc is like a step cousin that might or might not be related by blood. I agree though..... Leave the timber.

Bonham TX, if you check mapquest you can see the dam already being built, its one of those odd lakes that runs south to north instead of towards the coast

roflmao no kidding

Does anyone else see the opportunity to have a grass lake in north Texas? I'm sure a lot of guys will drop brush piles, but considering some of the nearby lakes have pads, reeds, and grass... I am holding out some hope that they can keep some grass in it. Anyone else, or am I dreaming?

I’m going out on the SXS soon to start marking creek channel bends and brush piles.

You can get mid-lake (1396 Road Bed), but the backs of creeks are fenced off (for now).

I read the article just the other day but whisked they’d have included an expected date of when it will be completed and opened to the public.

Talked to a lady in their office about when yhey will open it for fishing when it fills up. She said they wont know till it fills and they will decide when to open it Say it will take 2 years to fill but be a lot quicker if we get some big rains.

Back when Fork was filling up (and before opening to the public) I rode a Honda trail bike all around Big and Little Caney. Saw lots of interesting things but with it being before civilian use GPS and with large uncleared timber areas it was hard to know exactly where I was a lot of the time. Took pictures and notes relative to notable landmarks which was about the only way to relate to specific locations. What turned out to be even more challenging, especially with no really good lake maps at the time, was trying to understand where the ultimate shoreline would be and how deep the water would be at many of the locations I toured. Some areas I thought might end up being shallow or deep turned out to be much different once the lake was full. With the accuracy of today's GPS, relocating some small scale features is now quite doable but to predict the future depth of a specific location you would need the elevation of the fish holding feature vs. the design full pool elevation of the lake (and/or the lake level during seasonal fluctuations). Think many portable GPS units show elevation but not sure how accurate they are at the consumer level. Today, technology advancements should make pre-fill topographical research a lot more accurate. Hope this new lake turns out to be a productive one and more lasting than Cooper.
