Rayburn is still on the rise and we have more rain headed our way. Sunday it was at 170.8 and this morning I think the guage is broke It showed 174.8 at 7am and now it shows 179 WOW It also shows they are releasing water. https://www.swf-wc.usace.army.mil/samray/ If we get the amount of rain forcasted and if they are unable to release any water due to flooding at Dam B I am afraid we may see it start going over the spillway (176) very soon. ( I dont think that 179 is accurate or sure hope not.

Gauge is now showing 171.49 which is much more believable

looks like they will be releasing full flow at Dam B, they are warning downstream folks to start evacuating

Tom Webb Manager over the control center said this morning there was indeed a issue with the gauge, but it has been fixed and level is around 171.5. Praying for all those in the area being hit by the floodwaters

Probably 173-174 if I was to guess. Depends on rain. If it floods could go higher. 2019 it was higher

I have an App on my phone that is called Lake Level. Has a c-r-a-p load of lakes for Texas on it which shows current lake levels. Except for some reason Sam Rayburn isn't updated????

I hope everyone in the area will come thru this safely and without losing homes and personal belongings, with that said Big Sam needs a break from all the fishing pressure.

It got just shy of 175' in 2019 which is right at 11.5' high.

We have dodged most of the rain (upriver) of Big Sam the last couple days but the forecast still shows that we are in for a toad strangling amount. hammer

Yea. I couldn't remember, thanks. It may be rough to get on the lake but the fish will love being able to get away from all of us. Hopefully they ease it down all summer and don't dump it

They'll have to dump it as soon as possible due to hurricane season. A tropical system on top of that water level would be catastrophic
