Uvas 1-18 (Water Level Pics Inside)

Decided to try one of the local lakes for the first time since mid October after reading some of the posts. Uvas has always been a reliable producer so decided to go there.

Jaw dropped as I pulled up and saw the water levels. Got skunked, water was extremely dirty and cloudy. Quite a few people fishing though, did see one guy get what looked like a bass in the shallows, and then proceed to put it on a stringer and keep it >:-(

Water levels are pretty disheartening, if we don't get any rain soon Uvas will be bone dry by the summer and the fish will be dead.

From the boat dock by the parking lot. That's damp mud in the background, no water.

However, someone from SJB said he likes it that way because all the fish is in small area. Me, not.
