From the FWC.
In the first three years of TrophyCatch documenting bass heavier than 8 pounds that anglers catch, photograph in their entirety on a scale, and release alive has demonstrated Rodman Reservoir to be one of the most productive trophy bass fisheries anywhere. This drawdown, along with other management efforts should sustain these opportunities.
Rodman Reservoir proposed drawdown schedule:
16 ̶ Begin formal drawdown
1 ̶ Largemouth bass become catch-and-release
15 ̶ Arrive at drawdown elevation of 11 feet NGVD
March 1 ̶ Begin refill to 18 feet NGVD
March 15 ̶ Normal largemouth bass regulations in effect
April 15 ̶ Arrive at normal level (18 feet NGVD)
