Yessir, with one caveat... with all the flooded brush they are going to be scattered all over and hard to get to.  That said, its like an investment cause recruitment should be great this year!

The next one at Little Ridge is a bit of a haul from my house in Mckinney... I am hoping my pitch for the next clean-up to be at Clear Lake will be accepted.

Thought I would plug this group that was created on Facebook... one of our fellow fishermen started up this page and has managed to garner quite a following of folks who care about the lake and our public access.

There were quite a few of us on the lake yesterday for a Monday... hope the rest of you had more luck than I.  Divided my effort between bass and crappie, two crappie bites and no tugs from any bass  icon_rolleyes.  Was hoping that front would not shut them down since temps didn't drop at all afterward... water didn't seem any muddier than Lady Mudhole usually is...  Oh well, better than working anyway.

the last big rain event was a suddenly occurring td that didn't give any warning and dropped huge floods on overly full lakes. rare but devastating, and will happen again.
It certainly was... but it occurred in the springtime when large amounts of rainfall are expected to happen.  Looking at the historical water data since 2010 the lake has not risen more than a foot or so between July and December.  Just think that during the summer months if Hubbard is full it wouldn't be a bad idea to slam those gates shut until about October to increase supply for both lakes during peak usage and evaporation.

There really should be seasonal thresholds for how much water can be held in the lake IMHO.  Obviously the threat of a serious flood / rain event in July, August and even September is pretty near 0... so long as Hubbard is full we should be able to hold excess water at a level that would not negatively affect access to the lake, threat of flooding etc.

Have only fished them once but caught a nice slot fish on Athens with the 3/4 oz.  Love fishing a football jig and even more rewarding when you DIY! Made possible by Barlows in Richardson.

Running water back yet at East Fork or still using Johnnies?

Here are the definitions... to go one step further I will say that based on the situation with Ray Roberts the Flood Pool listed indicates either the maximum level of water that the dam was designed to hold for extended periods or the level at which park facilities will become unusable.  Flood pool for Roberts is 632.5 and it is now at 641.5 and approaching level of the emergency spillway.  They gave level for the emergency spillway on the news last night I believe but I don't recall what it was.  By law water must be released to return the lake to Conservation Storage unless doing so will cause flooding downstream.

I can assure you they are not trying to fill Hubbard. It's all about conservation levels and water rights. Lavon can only hold water to elevation 492.00. Anything above that is required to be released down the East Fork into Hubbard.  That water belongs to the City of Dallas. If / when Hubbard fills up to 435.50, then they will match the flow from Lavon and the water will continue downstream to Lake Livingston, a city of Houston water supply.

First:  Livingston is full and according to TPWD and water data has very little annual fluctuation.  We should be able to reserve some excess when Livingston and Hubbard are full.

Second: Can't believe that water from the Trinity downstream from Dallas is collected and used   icon_eek   EWW!

Side note: Texoma is FULL!

Water report from Wilson Creek in Mckinney: SHE'S ON THE RISE!!! Pictures are at the bridges which used to be Central Expy before it was redone between El Dorado and Virginia, just west of Towne Lake.  This morning the water was almost over the west bridge, soccer fields were flooded and creek was overflowing into Towne Lake.  Last time it was like this was March 2012 and Lavon rose something like 4'.  We are about to be fillin' up Hubbard with our overflow!

Closed until further notice... closed until further notice... I really wish the county, state or a city could take over at least ONE of the parks and make it decent.  We camp at Tawakoni State Park when we go and the difference is night and day compared to Clear Lake Park which is about the best one on Lavon.  Last I checked Collin County is the 2nd wealthiest county in Texas and Lavon is our only major lake... you sure can't tell inside the COE parks. icon_rolleyes  Have also camped at COE parks at Navarro Mills and Bardwell lakes.  Both have been updated with bathroom and shower facilities and put ours to shame.
