Bass 2 Trout 2 Bluegill 2 Catfish 2 Crappie 1 Avenue 26b between Roads 27 and 29 the main road to Eastman was closed due to a washout across the roadway. The lake has risen from 24% to 51% within the week. The only way into Eastman is via the back road from Hensley, and this is not advised for a boat/trailer. Hensley has risen from 28% to 49%, and both lakes are like chocolate milk with heavy mud and debris. It will be a few weeks before the lakes settle down and clear. There are plenty of planted rainbow trout in both lakes ready to be caught once the water clears.
