CommentsSeveral clumps of crested floating hearts found in The Cathedral area of Caddo Lake, Harrison County, Boat Road U. These clumps were pulled up and thrown in the garbage. This location is often dredged especially after high water events. Currently the water level is still above normal and we do not know of any immediate plans to dredge. The observation was reported to TPWD (Tim Bister, Thomas Decker)on this day as well.; TexasInvaders Report
