On Fork and most lakes no.
On some lakes like OH Ivie, Falcon, Amistad and Choke Canyon all tournaments are going on when the lake is much farther down than 6'.


I got the jab to protect myself, those around me, and to stop the virus.

Fork can handle a 200 boat T easily being 6 foot down

Just the boats will be that much closer fighting over the schools of bass.

At what level do the stumps start being a problem in the boat lanes?

I'm sure that is the reason for the OP's question. The only thing I can think of, and that decision affects me as a captain in that tournament, is that with many inexperienced captains in the HS trail, possibly the officials thought that would increase the risk on that lake. If this is about the safety of the kids, I'll swallow my angst for the decision and go learn TWOK. Having had a boat at Fork for over 20 years, I was kinda looking forward to being on that lake. Another time I guess, and hopefully not February! lol.

I have spent the past 45 years spitting in their mouths...increasing the size of Texas fish with every spit!
