Lake Meredith is doing great. Depth as of today is 79.45 feet. It's nice to see Meredith doing so well. In fact, it's nice to see many of the lakes in our area doing so well; except for one.

Why and how is it possible that one panhandle lake is still absolutely dry?

What's Wrong With Lake McClellan?

I don't think that's the right question. Let me rephrase that. Why is Lake McClellan still bone dry? It makes no sense. We've got areas that look better than they have in a decade, and McClellan is over there holding out.

Does it have something to do with the soil? Is there a giant drain that leads to the middle of the Earth somewhere in the middle of Lake McClellan that someone forgot to put the stopper in?

Is it, as one person suggested, that the bottom of the lake is actually made out of sponge?

It's actually nothing even remotely close to any of those insane suggestions.

Dam Ranchers...See What I Did There?

Digging for a while and watching the drama unfold online, I think I've stumbled across the reason why all of the rains didn't magically fill poor Lake McClellan.

Dams along the creek that supposedly fills the lake.

I didn't grow up around McClellan, so I'm going to have to go off of the word of those who are out there. Supposedly, the creek that helps feed the lake has dams along it. I'm sure the ranchers love it. It's a bummer, however, for McClellan.

From the information I've been able to gather, the only way for the lake to really fill up is for there to be an insane amount of rain, since the creek that feeds into it doesn't do the greatest job feeding it.

I hope that somehow, someway, we see Lake McClellan restored to its former glory. There are stories all over the internet of people who spent their days out on the water of a lake that no longer exists.

In the meantime, it does offer some really nice camping.
