Millwood Fishing Report – March 5

By
Updated: March 7, 2018

Millwood Lake remains almost 14 feet (272.9 ft-msl now, vs. normal of 259.2 ft-msl) above normal pool with heavy current and wide debris fields. Trees, broken timber, logs, and vegetation grass mats are rolling in heavy current of almost 58,000 CFS of current, and navigation is hazardous. USACE closed all USACE boat ramps over a week ago, the Millwood State Park is still under almost 14 feet of water, and closed as well. We understand that USACE Beards’ Bluff Campground is open. We have not been fishing Millwood Lake again this week due to these hazardous conditions.

Hopefully the Corps of Engineers will have Millwood Lake lowered to near normal levels by next week, but that is pending inflow and outflow rates, and contingent upon the Red River level continuing to decline in elevation.
