Latest Conditions at Amistad Lake

Mar 2017: I absolutely cannot wait until we get some really warm weather.  We get the odd day here and there, as is typical for Del Rio, but Amistad Lake is huge, so it takes weeks of hot weather to really warm up the lake.  It didn’t get quite as cold this year as it normally does, but cold enough for the lake to get down to its regular 50 degrees in Feb.  It’s beginning to warm up slowly now, temps at depth at about 60–you’ll still want a dry suit or a 7mm full with hood, gloves and boots.  Visibility never really improved over winter because we’ve had a lot of days of high winds (churns up the turbidity) and a lot of precipitation still rolling in every few days (runoff plus turbidity).
