I regularly fish Lake Whitney which is about 40 or 50 miles north of Waco so I try to keep up with what's going on at the lake. Yesterday in the catfish section of the Texas Fishing Forum, I found this tid-bit about the Corps parks and ramps.... Wasn't on the local news..
As of yesterday morning all Corp parks are closed due to threat of biker gangs coming into town and staying at parks. Its crazy but I was turned away at locked gate for that reason. Never thought a motorcycle gang would keep me from the lake. Call Corp office at the dam before heading out. They will know which parks are closed.
The Forum does a great job of keeping folks informed.
