Default Lake Travis is flooding

Lake Travis is full at 681 and usually between 668-675 right now. Its been raining like crazy here and they expect it to go up to 691.

Im going to my property to take some pictures of the flood and see how high on the land it goes.

Sorry to hear about the flooding out west. I live on Lake Conroe and it has been extremely low for three months now. My scarab churns up mud when pulling out of my slip. We can use the rain or the only boating I'll be doing is in my bass boat. Send some water my way (only during the week though).

From the LCRA web site


LCRA River Report

Wednesday, November 17, 2004 12:23 PM

Floodgate operations are continuing at Highland Lakes dams due to heavy rains. Flood watches and warnings continue throughout Central Texas. At noon today, one floodgate was opened at Mansfield Dam, which forms Lake Travis. Two additional gates may be opened. Rain continues scattered throughout the basin. Inflows to Lake Buchanan caused floodgate operations to begin at mid-day today and we expect to have three additional gates open by this evening. This will result in four to five feet of water over the spillway at Inks Dam. Residents on or below Inks Lake should be vigilant as these flood flows are released.

I am in an apartment on the lake right now...The Reserve. I am building a place this Spring. I have been out pretty regularly... usually during the week. I have a 2003 29 Fountain. It has a dark blue and outlined in black stripe down the side... where are you on the lake?
Sounds like we can hook up for a brewski
