It’s about a foot from full with two gates open, and a ton more water coming from above.

Scouted PK Friday from @ 12 to 5 . Launched from South D&D checked creeks across from Bug beach after looking at Hogs Bend area. Table Top , Bee etc in Broadway. Water became stained from Bass to Peanut entrance , once one enters Peanut and north water is muddy with numerous floaters. All areas south of said spots are clear . Did not check Cedar nor Caddo.

Lots of Herons , blue and white on banks south of Hogs . Very little activity on areas checked.

Gborg: That's good info on the birds. I even went up lake to try and get some threadfins but could not find them, Ok I got 1. Ended up with about 8 big gizzards. Those smaller stripers will try to eat the big gizzard shad and I cat one now and then. Did get a 24 inch striper on an 8 inch gizzard.

I still think the threadfins took a big kill after the freeze.

PK was clear in the main lake from the dam to Bluff creek yesterday. Lots of sandies in Paradise cove but the stripers went somewhere. I guess with the gates open down to granbury. I had some nice gizzard shad and no takers. Even the LM bass seemed to have lockjaw. I did get a nice keeper on a perch, but there were a couple of wall hangers cruising around the cliffs marina after they spawned. Caused the weekenders to throw everything in the tackle box at them trying to get a bite. I'm sure it was frustrating.

We are catching until about 8:00 AM. Top waters and live shad.
Water is now muddy to South DD I was told. I didn't quit make it that far up today.
Bait is plentiful. Bait had a great spawn this year. Watching hundreds of babies go through my cast net each day.

Randy always knows where the fish and bait are. I haven't seen a shad school this year. Looks like I need to spend more time uplake.

3 gates open today and there is drone video on FB of people bankfishing and catching big stripers in whitewater rapids below the dam. Hope they stay in the lake!

Yep, with three gates open we will dump stripers down the brazos. Hope those folks fishing that dangerous water will stay safe. I might fish below the dam once the flood gates close.
