No water! I mean NO water Was training dogs 2 weeks ago in a blow out hole in pool 1 on inside of levee... It was way down... 5 days later bone dry!!! They will be lucky to have any water for teal season Im not sure if they have started pumping on the east side but dont think so


Crops are all green... Combines are going to start till October around here!! Going to be a late season

They are not planning on pumping for teal this year. And no pool 8 will not look like it did last year teal season.

Exactly all the food plot corn on the east side is going to burn up in this dry weather and not even be tall enough to hide in.

Two weeks ago- very low water and only two teal on the whole place. Now we are in a real hot pattern and it probably won't get better.....

Cormorant population was looking up though, always like to watch them fly over and bet if anyone takes a shot :)

If it cools down what will that help? The 36"corn grow with no water? Birds fly over dry habitat?

Haha and idk about you but I work in the heat enough and if it cool down it would be better than sweating will I hunt, and last I checked birds move on weather changes just because there is no water there doesn't mean that there is no water anywhere else
