CommentsThe specimen I found was located washed up along the very rocky shoreline, which consisted of cobble to boulder sized particulate at 35 percent on top of solid bedrock with algae growing at regular intervals on the rocks. The Lake Texoma lake level was approximately 4ft low (613.51ft - consistent with the seasonal pool plan for Texoma). Climatic Conditions as of 6:50pm (Time of Observation) on 10/17. Air Temperature: 70F. Wind Speed and Direction: 14mph S. Lake Temperature and Clarity.
