Water Begins Leaving Lake Chicot Today

CHICOT COUNTY, AR (Ben Caxton) — Despite all the rains and flooding this year across the Delta, water levels are dropping as of today on one area lake. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has begun a long-scheduled drawdown at Lake Chicot in Arkansas. Levels in the lake are expected to drop about six feet from 106 NGVD to around 100 NGVD by August 19 in that process. The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission says the daily creel limits for sportfish will be half of the regular limits for Lake Chicot during the drawdown. The gate will be closed again on New Years Day so the lake can fill back to normal pool levels by the spawning season.
