Low lake levels in parts of drought-stricken Texas could eventually contribute to better fishing areas.

Experts say exposed ground means more vegetation is growing on
land that will hopefully be covered by water in a few years.

The Lower Colorado River Authority reports the average elevation
for Lake Travis in July is 669 feet above mean sea level. The level
Wednesday was 637 feet.

Fisheries biologist Steve Magnelia with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, in a visit this week to Lake Travis, pointed out so-called "sometimes islands," areas that are now out of the water.
