With a mere 8 inches of water left at the Bottoms, on the first 100 degree day in June expect a very nasty smell that you will be able to sniff all the way to South Carolina.

Now what are we going to do with the misplaced 6000 NR that have their travel plans already in place for CB when it is bone dry this fall? Department didn't care to consider that scenario. Thankfully Neosho and MDC can handle another 150 more parties, now get ready for a little Barton County life.

Bullheads, carp, crappie free to anyone who wants to drag them out of 14 inches of silt.

Pray for rain boys, pray for rain.........................................

132 days left before it becomes a reality.

The year 2018 found us in a similar situation, water-wise. There was very little rain during the summer, and my records indicate that the Bottoms was 95% dry....right up until the week before the Early Teal opener. At that time, we got a lot of rain and CB then had sufficient water in all the pools to provide decent hunting conditions.
The problem was this: the dry summer meant all the moist soil vegetation was hit hard and there was very little duck food available.

It's raining here right now. Lets hope this is the start of sufficient water precipitation to A. let the millet, smartweed, etc. produce seed and B. put water in all the pools before the start of the season.

As far as the carp die off goes; it happens almost every year regardless.
