As of this writing the lake is 50% full, and dropping about a foot a week! A FOOT! The low water levels reveal things not normally seen like sunken sailboats and foundations of buildings. Doesn’t hurt the fishing either!

Our dock on Lake Travis has been sitting in the dirt for about a month now. This is the fourth or fifth time I can recall the water being this low since my parents bought the property back in 1975....so, every decade or so. Part of the joy of having waterfront property on a flood control lake as the water levels have and always will fluctuate greatly. It can drop a foot a week or it can come up 25 feet in one DAY. She'll be back. I just hope it doesn't take 4 years like it did when last decade's drought hit.

It doesn't hurt the fishing because the fish are concentrated in a lot less water.

That’s true! In 2018 the water came up within 4’ or out house in PV!

That’s true, and it reveals structure that was previously unseen

Well we were 36.42 low before this giant rainfall the last two days. Now we're at 36.42 low. Sorry for the sarcasm we just didn't get enough of it. The good news is my yard is happier than it's been in 3 months!!

Everybody talks about it being super low. Well I remember in the late 2000's it was like 56' low. I am not in Texas right now so I was wondering if I want to drag the boat down come November. Looks like I will be.

I would, you could fish Lake Austin or LBJ if Travis is still too low
