    Lake is full, went for a trail ride

    Well our lakes here in North Texas are finally full, and have been for a month or so, with all the heavy early summer rains we got. I'm still recovering from a type 6 tibial plateau fracture but couldn't resist the high water. So I dusted off the ZXi and dropped in at my nearest ramp in Heath. Rode all the way up the river to Hyw 78 where they were releasing water from Lake Levon into Lake Ray Hubbard. River was about 5' over the banks and all the surrounding woods were flooded, which made for some good side trails too. 50 mile round trip, 5 hrs on the water and 3/4 tank of fuel. It was a great day(7/11/15).







    This is a satellite of the lake before the rains came. I took the left fork that winds through the woods.

    Cool! We have trails running through our lake!

    Oh, it's come up with the rains we've had this spring, from 0.6% to 8.1% full. I think there's enough to launch the JetSkis from the shore, but it has to come up another 10 feet to reach the bottom of the boat ramp.

    I feel for you Steve. My folks live in San Angelo so I understand how bad it got/is out west. This was the first time in two years I was able to put in.

    Really? My wife is from San Angelo. She still has lots of relatives living there and we visit often.
