Lake Palestine always looks pretty awful after big rains too.  This floated in to our docks yesterday.

Ain't it a SHAME & A DISGRACE Martin? I've driven those back roads along Saline Creek & I wouldn't be surprised if there weren't still a few open FIELD LINES dumping into our lake! It's a mess, especially after the kind of rains we've had the last couple of weeks! Any fish you catch in the next few weeks, you might want to have them checked for AMONIA saturation! LOL! (but not really funny)

The Trash don't care about how they trash our countryside and lakes.  They have already trashed their lives so they no longer care about anything.

palestineag, at least the door was removed before that was dumped.

Did someone use an old refrigerator as target practice? Must not be a very good shot to need a 15 square foot target to aim at...

Yep, makes no sense. When I started hitting the creek in Waxahachie this spring you could see a little here and there. I started late February and by late March it looked like a landfill along the banks. I have never understood why people won't simply pack out what they pack in.

I see a lot of folks toss their trash in the back of their pickup truck thinking that it's going to stay there going down the road 75 mph. and it eventually winds up in the river systems.  The Sabine looks awful right now with all the junk in it.

We have a creek that feeds the Trinity running through the golf course and after every rain we have lots of trash washing down to us.

what bothers me most is that a lot of the trash is let on the banks

by fisherman and sportsmen. You would at least think they would try to

preserve the habitat. But for the lazy guess their homes look the same

i have seen them leave trash on the banks  only feet away from a trash

barrel wont even make the effort to carry it that far. Sad.

I've seen this same type of action at the Joe Pool fishing barge in the past.  The marina has several trash barrels in easy reach both inside and outside the barge.  But the trash will drop their trash on the floor beside them or just leave it on the bench when they leave for the day.

How much effort would it take for them to walk a couple of feet and throw the trash in the trash barrel?
