Man - Halloween weekend! No kitchen pass for me for this one as the kids all want to dress up as the little monsters they already are and go and terrorize the neighborhood.

I am fishing the LA marsh on October 22nd though :)
Outing Information Only / UPDATE: Louisiana Marshes

Get Signed Up for Louisiana Marshes Trip

Not much time left to sign up for the Louisiana Marshes Trip with our hosts the Contraband Fly Casters (CFC) out of Lake Charles, Louisiana. The trip is scheduled for October 30th and 31st, 2015. We will be in search of big Reds in the marshes off Lake Calcasieu. Jeff Ferguson, a member of the CFC who has a house on Lake Calcasieu, went out the other morning and whacked 'em again bringing home a cooler full of Reds for the fish fry Friday evening the 30th. Jeff continued to catch and release several more before calling it a day. He assured me the fish are still there although they have moved back deeper in the marshes. I hope they stick around for a couple more weeks.
There is an article outlining the trip in the WindKnots so I'm not going to rewind that here. There were a couple of questions at the last monthly meeting, of the Texas FlyFishers, that I'll address.
We have a guest house rented that is nearly full. Those fishermen who trailer boats for this trip will have first option on the guest house accommodations (sorry we need the boats). Others will be on a first come first serve basis and that holds true for boat space as well. If there is enough interest I will try to obtain another guest house but they go fast so get signed up ASAP. If that fails there are motels a few miles away but it'll be more expensive.
There will be the fish fry on Friday night, courtesy of our hosts the CFC, but all other meals, drinks, snacks, etc. are your responsibility. Probably, it would be a good idea to bring a six-pack or your favorite libation to share at the fish fry but that's entirely up to you.
There are plans in the works for a power point presentation on fishing the Big Lake as Lake Calcasieu is referred to by the locals. Hopefully, this will give you some alternatives if the Reds have left the marshes. A Captain's Meeting and boat assignments will follow the presentation.
Although this is a fly fishing trip nobody is going to be a damn purist out there. Bring some conventional tackle with you if you'd like. Believe me when I say, the Cajuns would rather Catch and Grill than Catch and Release.
Check online for length and creel limits – they're different than Texas. The same holds true for your fishing license. You can't just go to a local bait shop or Academy and buy your license. You need to look into it NOW not when you get to Louisiana. Don't quote me on it but I think a one-day Louisiana saltwater fishing license is $17.50. In addition to that you must also obtain a one-day basic fishing license which is $5.00. For Texas seniors, who are 65 years and older, there is a Reciprocal Agreement with the State of Louisiana. A Texas resident, 65 years and older, may fish throughout Louisiana's public waters - both freshwater and saltwater - if they possess any type valid Special Texas Resident Fishing License for Seniors issued by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.

Outing Chat / Club Outing Idea - Striper Tournament on the Guad
« Last post by MattBlyth on October 08, 2015, 01:11:47 PM »

Reelfly Fishing Adventures in Sattler is holding a fly fishing only Striper tournament on the Guad in November. After this years heavy rains in spring and early summer there are a lot of stripers in the trout section of the river and some are monsters in the 20lb plus range.

The tournament will run on November 7th - details as follows

-Fly Fishing ONLY by way of Fly Rod, Reel and artificial flies.
 -Anglers can fish from boat, kayak or by wading the Guadalupe River. Fishing is permitted below Canyon Lake Dan down to the 3rd Crossing.
-COST $50 per person
 -Tournament begins at sunrise and weigh in is at 3pm at the fly shop 1642 FM 2673 #3 Canyon Lake, TX
-Free Meal and Refreshments will be served to follow.
-Places will be determined by size; legal (18"+, bag limit 5) stripers should be harvested and kept alive in order to be planted back in Canyon Lake. (Pending stocking permit approval from TPWD) Winnings will be based on BIGGEST, SMALLEST, & MOST striper. Any Holdover Rainbow Trout caught will count as extra points, but must be catch and photo release.
 -Entries must be made by November 1st. Entries made Nov 2-6 will increase to $60 per person. Mail entry fee along with contact information to ReelFly Fishing Adventures at 1642 FM 2673 #3 Canyon Lake, TX 78133 or call 830.964.4823
 1st Place Redington Vapen Black 7wt
 2nd Place Redington Behemoth 7/8wt
 3rd Place Rio Striper line and Leader

I thought this might be a fun idea for a club outing - particularly as the plan to keep the fish alive and place them back in Canyon Lake (not sure how they plan on doing this but will find out). Of course I cant make it as once again I am traveling but I thought I would throw the idea out there.
