How is shore access right about now?

Post By: Salmon Slayer      Posted: 10/3/2021 5:40:31 PM     Points: 1824    
How limited is shore access at JMart right now? Water level shows to be 17,474 acre feet. Compared to my first autumn trip there five years ago, the level at 106,860 acre feet was 84% higher! I've been busy moving other family members and now my wife and I, so I haven't been keeping up with the forum. We would like to go there in a few days but not if we have to fight the mud. Thanks in advance. John

Wow, Iíve never been down there but that sounds extreme. Is that a normal fall draw down level or weather related.

Have you guys found any good tricks to deal with the mud when youíre fishing these low water lakes? Iíve duck hunted there and the mud was brutal, as it is at a lot of lakes.

Check some waterfowl forms, they may have more current reports for water levels?
