Its about 15' to 20' feet low. I fish the boat ramp at Cedar Breaks at least 3x's/week (or the shore @ Jim Hogg) and the low levels have given us bank anglers a helluva lot more places to fish/catch from. I went out yesterday and took about 40 pictures of the channels at C B park so I can piece together my own topo map of what, (if any) cover or structure there may to throw to from the bank. Going to Jim Hogg in a few to do the same. ;D

Were y'all catching them by the channel where the boat ramp is, or back around by the campgrounds, where that mountainous brushpile is?

Last year, before the flood when the lake was about this level, I was catching them with football jigs straight out from the overlook park in about (guesstimating) 30' - 40' of water. That was fun catchin', but what was even better than catching 4 lbers off the bottom, was pulling (wenching/finesseing) them up the 25' - 30' cliff face so I could unhook and release them.. ;)

Damn! I was trying to get all that typed before Ranger77 posted,  because I knew he'd be comin with the answer, but he beat me. Thank you Ranger77 (sincerely), you let me know I was at least in the right range. :D

As robert was saying about 18+ feet low as evidenced by the bank. Catching fish on steep dropping bluffs with access to shallow water. Plenty of shoreline that fits that description. No prob w/ shallow water hurting your outboard as long as you stay on the main lake. Back around russell or the river might be dangerous. Good luck. Brian :cool:
