CENTRAL TEXAS — Lake LBJ is now open to the public, according to the Lower Colorado River Authority.

The lake reopened Saturday at noon.

LCRA said boaters should reduce speeds and use extra caution on the lake, as submerged debris may be difficult to see, especially at night.

"There's an island that wasn't there before," Jack Squibb, who lives along the banks of Lake LBJ, said. "The channel has changed, and there's a bunch of logs. You take a chance on some serious boat damage."

Lake LBJ is the last of the Hill Country lakes to reopen after the flooding in October. Lake Marble Falls reopened to the public on Nov. 13.

Since the floodwaters inundated the Hill Country Lakes last month Lakes Marble Falls, Buchanan, Inks, and Travis have reopened to the public. The LCRA stated it is important to use caution on the lakes as their could be submerged debris still lingering around.
