ALAMO LAKE: Well folks, grab your fishing gear, make your reservations, and head on out here. It's on.
Crappier fishermen are catching 15 to 20 a day using the ol road runner minnow trick. The crappie are still up by the buoy line. If youre in doubt just head up to the flotilla of boats at the upper end of the lake.
Bass fishing is turning on. I spoke with an angler this morning who caught six bass yesterday throwing training wheels (spinner baits). He stated that all the fish he caught were in about 3 to 4 feet of water.
Catfishing is OK. A friend of mine caught 12. Most were caught up above the buoy line.
Were still using the old rental boat area to launch off of. With the crowds were having, you will probably end up parking in the upper parking lot. I know it's a long walk down the hill but it's the best we can do. We did some checking and the lake is about the same level as this time last year. That means we should get a few months (maybe longer) using the dirt ramp before we go into the unknown.
I was really hoping to get a lot of water this winter and avoid this mess. The long-range weather forecast has us hitting the 80s for the next 10 days, so I'm guessing summer is coming early. Were really slammed out here, so make sure and make a reservation before coming out.
Now I would like to take a minute and let everyone know that we have installed four cabins that will be rent-able. If things go well, I'm hoping to have them on line April 1. They will go for $65 bucks a night. A $100 dollar refundable damage deposit will be required when you make the reservation. The cabins are located in Camp area A, in between the shower/restroom build. Each cabin will come with four bunk beds, table/chairs and a trash can. Each cabin will also have an A/C heat pump unit. There will be a fire ring and picnic table out each cabin. That's it. You will have to bring everything else you need.
