Been at Lakeside since Labor Day. Fishing has been great. Looks like another flood is in the making like in 2015. The Corp Park Ranger shut the boat ramp down and closed the park. He said they expected the lake to rise to 625 next week. I am back home in Norman, OK. It's supposed to rain all next week.

As I recall, the lake crested at 645’ in 2015.

I tried to launch at Highport this morning by myself. Couldn’t get deep enough on the ramp to get the boat off easily. Could have done it with another person to back me in but not alone. The Armada of bass boats prefishing the tournament didn’t help either. Sure hope the lake doesn’t flood too long.

COE wouldn't feel like they were doing their job if they didn't create a flood situation every year.

COE has ZERO control over rain and how much water enters the lake. COE has ABSOLUTE control over how much water leaves the lake (until it reaches the spillway).

The COE as a delicate balancing act between the lake level and downstream flooding. They are currently releasing 15,000 CFS. In May 2015 they were releasing over 100,000 CFS which caused major down stream flooding and I witnessed the devastation around Shreveport. I do not envy the people having to make decisions in COE.Lots of good statistics on the website for Denison Dam.

They have opened the gates again. up to 7000 cfs and increasing. They are going to have to open them up because the lake is rising pretty fast.

The thing we as sportsman have to deal with all across the country is that COE puts fish at the bottom of the list of concerns, and taking human life, property destruction, need for irrigation control for food, we have to accept this. I'm not a fan of COE who want to dam ever flow of water in the country thinking they can control what nature throws at us but their responsibilities are enormous and they're being pulled in multiple directions during all but the most peaceful times.

640 is the spillway elevation and if I remember right in 2015, it was going over appx 5 feet in depth.

Today's level is almost 628. This site is good for all lakes in Texas:
