Outing Information Only / Re: White Oak Bayou (July 11th, 2015)

Ok cool!  That's good to know.  Like I said, we weren't sure what exactly it was referring to, but since none of us had done it before we just decided to play it safe.  I'll definitely have to go back sometime.
Here is Bill's email with everything you need to know about the new location:

I spoke to Don (the original trip lead). He told me because of all the rain and the current water level of Chocolate Bayou the fishing would be very bad.  The Chocolate Bayou the fishing trip is canceled.


Hoping the weather cooperates, I plan to go the Bolivar three mile turn around.  This should give us a great chance to catch reds and trout.  The trip will be a kayak or wade fishing trip from the beach.  We will meet on the beach (see directions below). If you will be bringing a boat, there is boat launch near the North Jetty Bait Camp.  Turn right on 16th street.  The ramp is at the end of the road.  Please let me know if you plan to do this.  There is not much room to park but you can park at the North Jetty Bait Camp (100 Yards away).   You can buy bait if you want at the following locations: North Jetty Bait Camp, 802 17th St. Port Bolivar, TX 77650 or Joe's Bait & Crabs, 724 Nelson Avenue, Port Bolivar, TX 77650.  Six miles from the ferry there is Bolivar Yacht Bait Camp Boyt Rd Port Bolivar, TX 77650 (Left on Boyt take last left to bait)             


Directions to the beach:,+TX/29.3824704,-94.7233663/@29.5625773,-95.1687556,10z/am=t/data=!4m9!4m8!1m5!1m1!1s0x8640b8b4488d8501:0xca0d02def365053b!2m2!1d-95.3698028!2d29.7604267!1m0!5i1  Follow the directions above then turn right on Rettilon Rd and drive to the beach. Turn right on the beach and go to the end of the beach (1/4 to 1/2mile).  Park by the barrier.  I have been able to drive my Prius on the hard packed beach.  We will launch kayaks from there.     


Please let me know what you intend to do.  If the weather does not cooperate, I will cancel this trip Friday evening.  Watch for the email.
I can't read that sign but I'm 99% certain it's specifically referring to trespass on unauthorized vehicles.

Whoops.  I forgot to check back on this thread. Here's a picture of the sign on Google Street View.  Unfortunately you can't read it on here, but you can see on the little map at the corner where it is.  That's what was weird.  We saw people walking around there too, and we even asked one of the guys about it, but he didn't seem concerned at all.  We weren't sure exactly what the sign meant, but something about it gave us the idea that it applied to people too, not just vehicles.  Since none of us had ever been there before, I just didn't want to take any risks (I'm only 17).  I'll have to go back and take a better look around.  I'm dying to fish there.  All the reports I've read on here have sounded amazing.

That flooding is crazy! How long do you think it'll take to go back down to fishable levels?

Due to the huge influx of fresh water, it has been decided that the outing at Chocolate Bayou is cancelled. Bill Leary, the outing leader, is trying to find a suitable area to fish instead. Watch this thread for updates.

Make a run across WB and fish the SLP flats. S/B okay.

I need to head over there ASAP. Those little bitty baby bream & bass from 2012 are growing up fast.

Frank S. showed us this trick with the binder backs,  and our Nilo gave me the rack to store them on.

Bayou has been cut down but presently 11' over flood stage! I was there yesterday morning but check this out it was over 4000 cubic feet per second last night! Normal flow 40 cubic foot!
