All that heavy rain scoured out the bottoms of the rivers, it set free all that poison. It sure wiped out a lot fishing spots. At least Conroe is not on that list. Lots of the water comes from the National forest.

Thanks for you taking time to look this up and post for us. My brother has a spot on Sandy Ck near Onalaska that we have been hoping to catch a bunch of crappie in but so far, bank fishing just is not cutting it. Maybe it will pick up in the next couple weeks with all this warmer weather.
