There are five main lakes that contribute to the Red River's flow. The most important is Lake Texoma which is a reservoir of the Red River, followed by Millwood, Hugo, Wright Patman and Caddo. The amount of water released from those lakes accounts for about 3/4 of the Red River Flow at Alexandria during most flooding events. The following is the release information from those lakes.


Lake Graph Texoma


Lake Graph Hugo


Lake Graph Millwood
Wright Patman


Lake Graph Caddo

Other, less important lakes and tributaries are Bistineau, Pat Mayse, Bayou Pierre and Black Bayou Lake.

To check condition further upstream of the five primary lakes, check the reservoirs and rivers upstream from them.

Texoma collects runoff from Northeast New Mexico, South Central Oklahoma and a wide swath of Northwest Texas and the Texas panhandle.
Hugo collects runoff from South Central Oklahoma, before emptying into the Red River east of Texoma.
Millwood is a reservoir of the Little River in Southwest Arkansas and collects runoff from Southeast Oklahoma and the Oklahoma/Arkansas border area including Broken Bow and Pine Creek lakes.
Wright-Patman is the water supply for Texarkana and drains the extreme northest corner of Texas. It's conttribution to the Red River dring flooding remains constant at about 10,000 Kcfs.
Caddo Lake is an impoundment of  Cypress Bayou which collect runoff from Lakes Cypress Springs, Monticello, Bob Sandlin, Lake O' The Pines and Ellision Creek Reservoir and then empties into the Red River just north of Shreveport..
