    Hey guys, hows the lake level now that we have had some good rains.
    Please post your lake and how the level is now.

    Cedar Creek Lake was way down off of hwy 85 you could walk out to the island now the water is back up to the hwy and lookin' real good now. Maybe only a foot or two low now. All boat ramps are open.

    Tim tells me Tawakoni is up about three feet and maybe more after all the run off. I'm going out there this weekend and will know more then. It was about 8 1/2' low before the rains.

    Last report on Ivie was 15.73 ft low. Concho and Colorado rivers ran a little last week but will unlikely help the lake any.

    Looks like Taw. is way up from last weeks rain. I pulled the below off the reports section of the Parks and Wildlife page.

    "Water stained; 54-58 degrees; 4.78' low. Black bass are fair on Carolina rigged Brush Hogs (short leader with a light weight) and Texas rigged craws in 5-8 feet in coves and around bridge columns. Crappie are good on minnows and jigs around bridge columns. White bass are fair on chartreuse slabs and live minnows. Striped bass and hybrid striper are fair on chrome Rat-L-Traps and Sassy Shad along and out from the dam. Catfish are fair on nightcrawlers."



    Looks like prime weather and water conditions if you hit the lake this weekend.

    Lake Belton is still over 3 feet low. Maybe some of that good rain will find it's way down here. My fishing area is very stumpy, right now.

    How's everybodies lakes doing ? Tawakoni is now down about 4 1/2' and the ramps are usable now. I think Joe Pool is about a foot high still.

    Hard to give lake level reports when I haven't had the time to fix my boat yet.
    But I'm sure lake Arlington is up, I know they reopened it to boaters last month.

    I want to go to Cedar creek lake sometime this year with my boat.
    T-Bone, let me know when you are going back out there and I'll meet ya brother even if we bank fish is ok with me and the wife. :)

    Went fishing yesterday at Big Sandy Park on Lewisville one of my friends had a little to much to drink and thought he would dive off the dock there well.... lmao i heard the splash turned around and there he was sitting in about 3 feet of water off the end off the dock :beat_plaster: normally the dock would sit in about 6-7 feet of water but not yesterday

    I released out on Big Sandy last sunday and my boat nearly bottomed out. You can go out about 20 to 30 yards from that dock and the water level doesn't go any lower than 5 ft.

    From what I here theres been a lot more fish caught in the shallow water areas. I was talking to a guy before I left and he said he caught about 20 north of there.

    t bone, travis goes up and down alot. most ramps are still open but it won't be long. we had some good rain today but it won't matter much.i may try tonight for a little while , have'nt had any luck so far.
    i've tried spot tail minnows, 1 live perch , shrimp and cut frozen shad. but i've only fished daytime till tonight. also,i'm getting hung up alot, it's all rock on the bottom.
    good luck,
    matt

    Hope ya catch a bunch tonite Matt.

    Dang James, it's a wonder he didn't brake his neck.

    Hey Chum, I fish Tawakoni and we hardly ever fish deeper than 6' foot, even in the winter (which wasn't much winter this year) we were catchin' them in 3' of water. There is deeper water near by and alot of trees out on a point. Maybe if ya have a spot like this one, get in there and fish the 3' water in the trees.
