The lake level is currently 165.05 ft, which is 0.65 feet above full pool of 164.4ft. Water clarity varies depending on where you're located on the lake. Generally, the south end of the lake is clearer than the north. The water north of the 147 bridge has decent visibility (1 - 2 foot), but the water above the 103 bridge (Attoyac & Angelina arm) is a little muddy. The water on the South end of the lake has more visibility (2-3ft). The lake has good vegetation ranging from the south end of the lake to a little past the 147 bridge. Locals have reported the hydrilla and other vegetation starting to grow thin a little past the deer stand area. They have also reported catching fish shallow during the shad spawn. Mainly on walking style baits, like a spook or a sexy dawg style bait. Others have also reported catching fish in the hay grass with swim jigs and frogs. With some of the rain coming this week and next week we may see a small rise in the lake level. The temperatures are slowly starting to increase so the deep-water bite is right around the corner. There has been a couple of people catching fish cranking a 6xd, 8xd. C20, and C25. Good luck and tight lines!
