Went there this morning. The area still flood badly. The park is still closed, and Peru is flooded too, can't launch my boat. 

Well, not sure how much longer is gonna take, I hope the white bass can stay little longer

Water is still above normal and somewhat murky. If we don't get any rain during the week it should improve somewhat by the weekend.
