    You are probably right Phil.  I"m headed down in the AM and will be there till the following weekend.  I have no clue what we are going to be looking at water wise so I've got it all with me and tied on.  I need to stop in and grab some marabou and other supplies, i'll try to find ya for a chat as well.

    The corps is worse than a woman, you can never predict them or her and just when you think you have them figured out they flip flop on ya...

    Travis Swift got a reaction from magicwormman in TR Lake Level going forward   
    At some point in the near future they are gonna have to move the water even if it's slow and steady. We are only about 5 weeks out from Hurricane season and heaven for bid of one hits and the remints move up to the white river basin it could spell disaster if they haven't dropped these lakes fairly significantly in the next month.

    I think the flooding down stream will have them release less than other events. Even if they open the gates I don't think we will see super high amounts? Maybe something along the lines of what they ran a couple months ago, 5 gates like they did before and maybe just run it for a long time bringing it down slowly? Just my thoughts.  Hopes too cause I'm headed down Friday for a week so I would love some flood gates with a fishable amount of water for a week.

    I'm due down next Friday May 29th and staying all the way thru the first week of June.  I'm guessing we are looking at flood gates when i'm there I bet.  We have alot of rain in the forecast here in south central kansas forecast for the coming weekend, 3 to 5 inches in fact.  Alot of time those rains drift towards the ozarks.  Setting up to be a a close rough situation down there the way it looks.

    Good Luck DJ and crew! There are more big trout in the lake than I've ever seen in my 30+ years fishing it.  You guys are in for a super weekend!

    We caught them good up at the cable for one pass till the sun got up then it got tougher than I've ever seen it in 30+ years. We drifted from the cable all the way thru monkey Island and then even went to the goldmine down lake all for about 6 or 7 trout. It was brutal Saturday!

    Travis Swift got a reaction from Jadesjigs in May 1st quick report   
    Fished an hour Thursday night and we caught a few stockers and a nice 19 inch brown.  Friday we started at the cable and to be flat honest it was brutally tough for us. First time we've ever made that drift without a fish. Drifted all the way to monkey island throwing jigs and dragging baits and throwing jerkbaits picking up a few here and there but nothing very consistent at all until we got past Cooper creek. Went back to the cable in the afternoon and again it was terrible for us. Started drifting back again and I finally caught a big brown that was 21 inches and weighed 5 even.  It's been as tough of a trip as we have ever had so far. We will see what Saturday brings but the big fish make up for the missed numbers!
