Show/Hide

All normal LLELA facilities and activities are available as of noon on May 18!

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers completed the maintenance work at the outlet ahead of schedule, and we are now open for fishing, camping, and other activities as normal. However, the water level in the river is still low. Check the release rate at the Lewisville Dam before you come, if you are counting on water in the river. Normal flow is 120-250 cfs, anything less is pretty dry.
