2013-02-12: The rating curve for Caddo Reservoir has been updated and replaced with data from the Texas Water Development Board's Report 126.

Caddo Lake: 100.0% full as of 2017-05-25

Caddo Lake straddles the border of Texas and Louisiana, Texas has rights to 50% of Lake Caddo's total conservation capacity. Percent full, conservation storage and conservation capacity are based on the Texas share. The elevation-storage rating curve used to produce the storage hydrograph is made of two segments: (1) the segment up to the conservation pool top (below the red line) is based on measured data, while the segment in the flood pool (above the red line) is an extrapolation from the first segment and shouldn't be relied upon for flood storage information.

Percent Full is based on Conservation Storage and Conservation Capacity and doesn't account for storage in flood pool.
