Last week’s fishing report was short-lived and did not carry into this past weekend. Due to very high winds and varying temperatures, fishing died down a little. Anglers still caught some fish, but not like before. The old adage of 90% of the fish being in 10% of the lake must hold true because the fish have nowhere to go since the lake is about 3’ low. As long as anglers keep moving about the lake, they’ll continue to pick up some fish here and there. Catfish remain fairly strong as was evident by bank fishermen catching fish in 2’ to 3’ of water.

Boaters are reminded that 90 days prior to their boat’s registration number expiring, and as long as they haven’t moved or changed mailing address, Texas Parks & Wildlife will send a renewal notice via mail. Always check your mail to ensure this notice isn’t tossed into the trash. Also, if you purchased a life preserver for your child some time ago, take the time to weigh your child to ascertain how much he weighs so you purchase an upgraded life preserver of perfect fit for specific weight.

An update on the eagle case reported several weeks ago; it turns out some local citizens were target shooting on private property in an area properly protected where the eagles just happened to be feeding. With the wind blowing the way it was on that day and the close proximity of the target shooting, it was easy to assume something was amiss. Everything turned out fine and now the neighborhood is on the lookout for their new neighbors.
