What you talking about boy, its still winter isnt it?   This was a poor day for me and my crew, fish not that hungry.   I am lucky to have lots of friends who fish with me, who will go out of their way to fish with me, and suffer through a poor day.   I became so upset today, and should have realized there are suppose to be days like this.   The guides are fishing in no mans lands, trees submerged, camping sites flooded, huge trees floating in the lake.   Rain, wind, so I say at this time, give them a hand, all of them are trying their dead level best, under hard circumstances.   Regardless of this time of the season, with all the obstacles, this is still the lake of all lakes, and I love it regardless.....Good fishing everyone....it could be just the opposite tomorrow.   [cool]

i am sure glad it is not winter for your sake jerry because if all this rain was snow and sleet you would be having a real poor day or a bunch of major cold ones.  maybe you will have a history in the making this winter.

All my thoughts and prayers of the people of Oaklahoma.And to my fellow fisherman and guides please stay safe. A few fish are not worth the results of a bad trip. The lake will be there and the fish will still be there long after the lake goed down.

Video of the spillway


I sure miss fishing Texoma. I wonder how long it will take for the ramps to be open once the rain stops?  Maybe someone who fished the lake in 2007 can chime in and let me know.


Also, once the rain stops how long before the water clarity returns to normal?

Maybe next year they can let some water out, before springtime, in case it rains .

24 hours later after i posted this listing lake texoma is now at 641.20. that is 2.07 feet difference from the original post at 639.13 24 hours ago and still more rain in the forecast. hopefully by August or September all of us anglers might get the chance to fish lake texoma again unless we hire us a guide to fish this beautiul lake.    the guides on lake texoma are going to be almost all alone fishing this great striper fishing lake for the summer unless we get a break in the rain. good luck all you great guides and be safe on the water and happy tightlines to all.    have a great day and lets all pray for a break in the rain and all this history making coming down all of our roads and just remember the only history making i would like to see from here on out is on the end of my fishing line.     have a great day    darin

tunamanb52 if you look at the lake profile levels the lake was below the projected level right up till the rains started. The only help they could have done was to begin releases earlier in the build up. That is not how the water control rules are written and the Corps must follow the book. Suggesting that power generation should start as soon as lake level goes over seasonal lake level might be a good option but will take years to get the rules changed.

If you look at the elevation plot from 2007 it peaked just before the middle of Jul, it was back down to 634 around the first week in Aug so about three weeks to get back down to 634. It was finally back down to 'normal pool' in early Oct, so about two and a half months.

This year is about a month earlier in the season so there could be quite a bit more rain coming to extend things.

Three major highways around Lawton are closed due to flooding, all headed down cache, east and west cache and into the red river. Long ways to go before any let up in water to the lake.
Not to mention the 7 + inches that fell around Anadarko yesterday, a good bit of which will end up in the Washita.
Feel sorry for all the people losing income from this.

I do feel sorry for the business folks. I hope they can survive. I also feel sorry for myself and all the people who loved fishing that lake. It will be a long wait.

I predicted 643 two days ago.
Raining pretty good right now & I'll be attempting to cross the Roosevelt Bridge in about 2 hours. I think it's still open but I'm betting not for long. [frown]
642.12 at 3PM, up 6 inches since midnight even with gates way open, 63,500 CFS but over 107,000 CFS flowing in

What is a bit worrisome is that the hourly data shows projected outflow as 0 starting at 20:00. Looks like they are planning to close the gates at eight tonight.
