We went by yesterday and it was fine but it looks like according to the flood chart its up almost another 2 feet since yesterday. We wanted to try to go out today but was waiting for any reports also.

BT, what flood chart do you look at? Is there one that just shows the bayou. Out on the main lake, the water rose a little over an inch since last nights rain. I tried to post my chart but have not figured it out yet. Lake is 1'4" into flood pool as of 11:30. It got down to 1'3" until last nights rain. The high was 1'6" two days ago. No matter what the level be safe out there guys. A lot of debris drifting right at and
under the surface between the two bridges. Didn't really go anywhere else this morning

I have seen the water up past the tree with the money box on it .

would have been hard to use then. so always usable ?

Think he meant unpassable at the bridge due to high water , but the ramp most nearly is always usable?

yes sir most of the time it is usable but with all the rain we were not sure if it was
usable at the time. It is over and hour drive to get to the lake for us and another
hour or so back if the ramp is not usable.

We Thank you people that live close to the lake for reporting back on whether
the water is low enough on the ramp we can get our trailers back enough to get the
boats in the water.

I was there Friday at 5pm and water was nowhere near a level that you couldn't get a bass boat or jon boat underneath and passed the bridge. I wouldn't think that 1.5 more inches of rain would have changed that but who am I? Lol
