    They have it down,right now!They are working on the low water dam.They have been working on it for the last twenty years,and haven't fixed it yet.There is no telling how many millions of $,they have spent on it,and it still don't work like it should.

    James, have you been up to Graham lately? My niece tells me that the water is over the bridge close to the barge they have over there.

    One of these days, I'm heading over there again.

    hey james let me know when you plan to go fishing around graham i have a few spots on the river to go to that i almost always catch a few fish and although they may not be monsters there are usually large numbers of them and occasionally a larger cat amongst some of the smaller ones

    Have you done any fishing this year yet. I know some boys who fish up towards fredec. I fish down towards Thompson. Last year we did pretty good. Did you fish in the fredec tournement last year? Also do you know of any were along the brazos to buy bait. I tryed Zurobec's but they only have gold fish and wont be getting perch in till the middle of march.

    Haven't been to Graham in some time. My dad has a deer lease just outside Graham we had to cross the river on some old county road where it was always dried up every time we headed out there. Not sure what barge you are talking about.

    I fish the Brazos around the Waco area on occasion. It is really low right now but I think I might give it a try tomorrow for a couple of hours anyway.

    Over this past summer ive fished at the low water dam prolly a total of about 10 times. The only thing ive ever caught was a few gar, but from what i hear thats ur best bet for the biggest yellow cats in the waco area. The only thing that sucks is the long walk to get down there.
