Water Wednesday Records Were Set

| April 5, 2017 | 0 Comments

Rain finally fell in North Texas in the last week. So much rain that it actually set new daily (same day) records that had been standing for years.

For we fly fishers, the rain injects some unpredictability into our outings, whether it’s the Nolan River, or your local dam release. Lake Ray Roberts had the valve opened earlier this week, and the fishing was starting to pick up there again. Of course that little jewel – below Ray Roberts – has been discovered by the crews from Frisco and Plano. So to get your favorite spot? You better be the early bird.

I have been hearing a lot of good things about the water south of Fort Worth, but time is not free right now to go find those spots, and overnight last night, a cool front kicked in and the wind is roaring today – shutting things down locally.

Apparently the site that provides the drought monitor maps is down, so you will just have to imagine an improving map!

Thanks for reading as always, and if you have any flooding pictures, SEND THEM IN!
