There is no doubt Texoma lakes are shrinking because of the drought.
And Texas Parks and Wildlife officials say that's bringing some of their normal operations to a halt.
Area lakes are supposed to be tested every four years for things like algae but couldn't be tested this year because of the levels.
Several lakes have also not been stocked with fish, because experts say the environment isn't sufficient to live in.
"We felt that the Florida Large Mouth Bass will not survive in the lack of habitat that is out there with low water," said Wes Dutter, from Texas Parks & Wildlife.
There is some good news in all of this.
Dutter says because there is less water, fish in area lakes are more concentrated allowing for several fishing records to be broken this year.
