Lake levels are on the rise due to several hard rainy days!! We sure needed this after that disastrous 2-3 year drought. All Texas are above normal level right now and the rain is still coming.....which you will not hear any complaints. :D

That is good to hear. Wish I was still living there! Here in Georgia, Clarks Hill is still way below pool with tournament time just around the corner for me.

Hey Texas!! Thanks for sending the leftover rain to us ole Arkies!! We needed it too. This ought to be a great spring on Dardanelle and other Arkansas lakes. Dardanelle got so low at times last year that a lot of algie and snot grass took hold in some of the best coves on the lake and depleated the oxygen levals. Read in the paper yesterday that the rain we have had already has helped flush out some of the crud. So more rain to ya and send it along!! 8)

Hey OTTER, how are the water levels for Millwood Lake? I haven't heard anything about that lake this year.

Texas, I pulled the report on Millwood from the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission web site and as of last Thursday the lake was at 264.06 elevation, Little River was swift and dangerous at a flow of 19737 cubic feet per second. There was, as you would expect, lots of floating debris and the current had turned off the crappie fishing around the bridge. The report comes out each Thursday on their web site. I am guessing that when all this rain stops, and there is more predicted later this week, that Millwood will be in good shape this year. I say that believing that we will have some good spring rains and that February will be it's normal rainey self!! The water temp ranged 42-47 degrees by the way. I haven't fished Millwood in years :( :(but I do intend to get there some this year. I was fortunate to have had some great trips there in the past and this is shaping up to be a really good year for that lake. That said, a lot still depends on the future rain fall amounts. Hopefully, they will be in the normal range to higher. I wish everyone needing rain gets it because this drought cycle has been the dickens around the country with Texas, the western states and Florida needing a boost.

Good Fishin'
