    THERE'S BEEN SO MUCH HIGH WATER IN THIS AREA, MOST OF MY RIVER FISHING HAS STOPPED. HAVE'NT DONE MUCH LOOKIN' IN THE LAKES EITHER. JUST BEEN GOING UP TO SKIATOOK FOR HYBRID, BEEN AVERAGING ABOUT TEN FISH IN A SIX HR. TRIP, FROM 5 TO 10 LBS. IT'S GITTIN' TO HOT TO KEEP SHAD ALIVE OUTSIDE IN " THE BIG TANK". HOPE WE START GITTIN' BACK TO SEMI NORMAL LEVELS. I'M SHURE READY TO START CATTIN' AGAIN. THIS HYBRID STUFF IS TOO MUCH WORK:crazy:

    Top, we are just being nasty. Texas wants to buy the excess water in Oklahoma, so we are sending it to Arkansas. LOL Guess its not funny to those in north/northeastern Texas though.

    I live in SW Missouri and in a 3 day stretch we got almost 15" of rain. Lots of local flooding. Hopefully that will be all for a while, as we desperately need a break. I haven't even gone to see what the local river looks like, but here in a few days I feel the need to catfish again.

    I imagine Spring River and Neosho River have been supplying lots of water to those in need. Glad to hear Oklahoma is sharing it's wealth with its Arkansas neighbors.:big_smile:

    last summer, when it was 105 degrees and we had been without rain for a year, i vowed it would be a long time before i complained about cold and wet weather......that vow is causing me a little discomfort now, but i am still thankful for the rain. i would rather have too much water than not enough.

    i sure would like to go fishing again, tho:smile2:

    There ought to be a way we could divert some of that water to Texas so the good old boys, like Bud and Danny, can bathe more often. That once a week just don't cut it. LOL

    just got back from fishin denison dam, it was roaring water for sure! didn't keep us from catching cats and stripers though. saturday we went up to blanchard s. of oklahoma city, and despite the fast water, still caught enough channels for a fish fry.
    sure is wet out there!

    Saw last nights news about the flooding in N. Texas. Guess it is nothing for me to be joking about. Here is wishing those old boys and gals the best of luck and hopes they will at least partially dry out soon.

    Still to much rain. The current on the river is dangerous.

    Top, FuzzFace and I went to fish the tail waters at Kaw Dam. When we got there, they were running the two generating flues plus 4 of the gates were open. About 12:00 PM they shut all the gates and the river dropped about 3' in nothing flat. Maybe that means the other rivers feeding into the Arkansas is also receding. Time will tell. If you just get delirious for the taste of fish, may I suggest Long John Silvers. LOL
