    Well obviously I am computer illiterate. lol I couldn't get the post to print the name right across the top so I was going to cancel the post and re-enter it and it wouldn't delete the post. I just hope everyone can read from the top down like the Chinese do. lol

    305 Straw Hat Report post Posted December 5, 2019 I am just curious on everyone's thoughts on the lake level. Usually by November the Corp has started to draw down the lake in preparation for the spring rains, Certainly by this date the lake is at least a foot or so below normal. This year they are letting the lake level actually rise. This makes me concerned about what kind of high water we will have next spring. Last year was bad enough. Any thoughts? Boy I don't know who this guy is but he sure is a genius!! lol I agree with what you all are saying. It will be another year of ramp closures and flood water. Yeah!!! NOT!!!

    Best wishes on your recovery. Don't worry about the fishing your health is a lot more important. Take care.
  5. Happy New Year to all. Be safe on the water this year.
  6. Well, 5 days on the lake in the last 9. Total - 2 crappie. You name it we fished it. Mostly I wanted to say Merry Christmas to al of you and a Happy and healthy New Year.
  7. "Perhaps they are keeping it high so Truman can be drawn down to winter pool first? It appears they have been dropping it. " That is a good point. My6 wife and I do a lot of bank fishing in the spring so last year was a wash out for us. Literally. All of our favorite launches were way too high to even consider launching. If I remember right we made our first trip in late July.

    I believe that Texas has some in a couple of lakes or they use to anyway.

    Olfishead, I remember that. The days of Bill Pfleiger and Spence Turner (one of the best trout biologists in my opinion). Ahhh, to be that young again.
  12. Curious. Did not mark hardly any fish on most brush piles or the bluffs. The bluffs are a particular puzzle for me and the wife. For twenty years when the water temperature was between 45 and 66 we would consistently catch good stringers of crappie (10 to 20) on very steep, almost vertical bluffs without exception. We had 3 bluffs we focused on. In the last 3 years this bite has completely disappeared. We averaged a little over 4 crappie a trip 4 years ago and this year it is only0.5 crappie a trip. Yup, that sucks..
  13. You broke my heart with that post. lol Went Saturday and Sunday both. Fished bluffs that in years past have always been great for crappie in this water temp. One fish is all we caught. Switched to several brush piles in the 15 to 20 foot range. Not one fish. Tried brush piles in the CC, Stockton State park, and twin bridges area. Nothing at all. Not even a bite. I guess I need to go. I have to have a good cry. lol Water Conditions Twin Bridges - Water stained, 5 ft visibility, shad on the surface. 51F CC - Water stained, 3 ft visibility, 48F Stockton State park area - Light stain, 7 foot visibility, 52F. lots of nice bass (up to 3 lbs) at 20 to 25 feet.
  14. 52 F at Ruark today, 4 or 5 foot visibility. No fish at all, not even a little bass! Water a little stained. 49 F at CC, water dingy, maybe 2 ft visibility. A couple crappie suspended in 15' but a lot of nice bass at 8 to 15'. 2 keepers (which I di not keep). Caught the bass on very large shiners and they were very aggressive and nearly white in appearance.
