I just got back from a 5 day trip on Falcon. I met Kenneth down there to do a little scouting for his upcoming tournament. It was really hot and really windy all 5 days. We still managed it ok and fished from one end of the lake to the other. The North end is still fishing tougher than the South end , but you can still catch fish in the off colored water. The bite is a little slower, but it is still there and it is good quality. The numbers are for sure on the South end , as we found several spots holding tons of fish in the 1 to 3 pound range. It is a little tough to dial in on that consistant big bite. We found only a few spots holding the big fish and what it took to catch them. The lake is sitting just above 40 foot low and probably, we will see that fairly quick. Last year we were blessed in Oct with a 20 foot rise in level, and if we do not get that this year, it just might get lower than we have seen it in years. As of now we only have one public ramp in use, and it is good for another 3 feet or so. Falcon has a lot of good gravel points so launching a boat will not be a problem if we do drop down. I have personally launched a boat when Falcon was over 50 foot low. It was sure fun to get back on my old stopping grounds and Kenneth and I found and caught a ton of fish.
