As we move swiftly from drought to flood I find appreciation in how quickly change occurs.  To embrace the change which is out of our hands lends to a deep peace.  Be it drought or flood, we let go of the idea that there is a problem to embrace the now.  The present moment brings adventure, moving with the change and working with what is at hand to make the best out of the situation.  The adventure is moving into the unknown with enthusiasm, from day to day I have no I idea of what will happen nor what to expect but I learn to dance to the changing rhythms of life in appreciation of how it all unfolds.

Lake Texoma has been on the rise coming up 2 ft per day at the peak of the inflow, as of now that flow has tapered off a bit and continues to rise at almost a foot a day with more rain in the forecast. The lake is at 635 and will top the spillway in five more feet at 640 which puts it around Memorial Day to go over.  At Little Mineral we still have power on right now and there is a raft set up to get back and forth from our boathouse.  I’m grateful to Tim and the crew at Little Mineral for everything they are doing help make this situation the best it can be they are doing a super job.  I’m driving my boat to the parking lot to pick up my customers and parking my boat where I used to park my truck.  Fishing the flood is truly and adventure everyday.

Yes we’re still fishing and yes the fish are still biting.  The big fish seem to all be back from the
spawn and are roaming about the deep water, and deep water is everywhere.  I’ve been having my best luck fishing on anchor just ahead of the mud line and calling the fish to me by beating the
water.  We’ve been bringing home around 20-30 fish on average per trip and we’ve been catching a most all of our overs as well.  The fishing is good now and I’m seeing signs that it will keep getting better. One of the best things about the flood is that it will reduce the boat traffic and thus the pressure on the fish so it should allow for some fantastic fishing this season.

The last time it flooded we were catching big fish in the tree tops on topwaters and sassys, hopefully there will be more of that to come this year.   I operate based on the gift economy so there are no set rates, we go out fishing and after the trip you are free to give in return whatever feels right to you.  I would love to take you out for this adventure fishing the flood so give me a call or go online to my website http://www.stripersinc.com to reserve your trip.

Thanks for the report. I second the applause for Tim and Co. at Little Mineral. My wife and I were up last weekend and spoke w/Tim and he even said he hasn't cancelled the "activities" he had planned for Memorial Day Weekend.

They turned the gates on but doesn't seem to have put a dent in the rising water after the rain last night.  3.64 ft. to go, won't be long now.
