They were releasing 4000 cfs when I went by the dam around 5 p.m. yesterday afternoon.  It was shoulder to shoulder fishing on the bank below the dam and I saw a few good stringers of healthy 13" to 15" fat sandbass and also saw one hybrid on a stringer.  It was on last night!

With all the rain we got last night I'm surprised the gates aren't open wider now.

In the picture, you can see a couple of good stringers of sandbass by the guy in the blue shirt in the middle of the picture.
P.S.  I think you have to be logged in to be able to see the pictures.

Made the trip to Waterloo Park again this morning.  Limited out and managed to catch one of the Palomino Rainbow Trout (the one in the middle).

Almost 5' above normal pool.  Ought to be any day now.

Wohoo!  Lavon is over 1/2 foot above normal pool and still rising.  It came up 2 and 1/2 feet since the rain started Tuesday.  Hubbard discharge is 8000cfs in preparation of Lavon gates opening.

I'll be a dam fisherman again as soon as the gates open up on Lavon.

Were you in the float tube?  Hope you had your thermal undies on cause I froze my nads off just going out the front door to get the Sunday morning paper. icon_cool


P.S. I thought today was February 11  - not April 1st.

Made the trip to Waterloo this morning for another go at the trout.  It was 54 degrees this morning when I left Allen and 35 degrees when I go to Waterloo Park.  Managed to get a limit of 5 but it was definitely slower since the cold front blew thru.

It was 31 degrees when I left at 10:00 a.m..  May give it another go tomorrow morning if the roads aren't icy.

Went up to Waterloo Park yesterday (Saturday, January 13).  Temperature was 27 degrees at 7 a.m..  Left there by 9:30 a.m. with a limit of trout caught on corn.
Had to de-ice the rod tip a couple of times when the water on the line would accumulate there and freeze up as I reeled in.

Drove out to the power plant this morning and it was definitely cold with a wind chill close to zero with the north wind coming across the lake.
The lake was warmer than the air so got a couple pictures of the steam coming off the lake - it was pretty to see that.

Happy New Year to All.

Is the fall fishing for panfish on Southlake any good or would it be better to wait until spring?  I finally finished my 1964 16' Skeeter and am ready to take it out on Southlake and give it a go.

Looks like Flounders old Mako 17 'Fishful Thinkin' is for sale again.

Price seems to have gone up a little.


Haven't seen his posts for some time come to think about it.

Will Little Ridge be open for this upcoming Memorial Day weekend?

Does the East Fork repairs include fixing and opening the restroom at the top of the Marina ramp?

s2srea - I assume you were fishing from the bank?

A few more heavy rain storms (without hail or tornadoes please) and they'll be releasing water below the dam.
