Google Pinkston Lake Center, TX Current Lake Levels

Drought restrictions were lifted yesterday, March 19th. Have at 'em. boys. Brings back fond memories.

Fished that lake hard in '85-'87. After Earl Crawford caught the "then" State Record (16.9 I think), Pinkston became a little, cold water Monticello. I could run it from the East side boat ramp all the way to the far NW reaches. Caught many a fish around that roadbed past Earl's house on the NW corner of the dam. Ya'll think he really caught that fish on that trotline with the green a/c refrigerant bottles on either end, out front of his house? Remember the bait and color he said he caught it on? How about how long it took him to land the fish? And the name of the store where he weighed the fish"

To qualify, those are the positions in my mid's eye. I may have my diections all screwed up.

The jungle was where all the fish used to be. I was able to get my boat through the culvert. 18 ft with 150. Good times. Fished it 84-87 also when I was at SFA.

Tim, the "jungle" was to the east of the ramp on the opposite end of the dam, correct? Weren't there two culverts, side-by-side? Haven't been there since the 80's and I'm getting old rolfmao

It's a great lake Jay. Lots of stumps to fish and the grass was outstanding before the drought.

The summertime schoolies there can be 5 lbs, I kid you not!
