Seems like the might do the trick:

I appreciate the effort, but these guys start at 6 wt.  :(

We still need a 4 wt.  And that is the challenge.....

General Discussion / Warm weather fly line?
« Last post by Puck on January 11, 2015, 11:56:40 AM »
Nilo won a 4wt at the Christmas party, and I've complemented it with a TFO BVK(R) reel, but am at a loss as to what line to put onto her new outfit. 

I see a ton of trout lines, designed for cold water, but no warm-water specific lines.

And no, she is not giving up on her bright pink Dogwood Canyon (R) outfit.

Responses appreciated,

I'm planning on being there if I can catch a ride on someone's boat.

Rumor has it that there will be another stocking of fresh fish the day of the outing.

Same as previous years - Silver Steelhead Trout (Rainbows basically).

Here is the fish hatchery they came from - http://www.troutlodge.com/index.cfm?pageID=B65DF2E3-3048-7B4D-A9277D3652E9A450

Interestingly Brent Hodges told me that a 6in trout was caught on the Guad before the first stocking this year. This is smaller than the TPWD stockies and way smaller than what TU stocks  - so it can only have come from either one of the trout in the classroom project tanks or the hatchery boxes that TU puts in the river using any of the extra eggs from the classroom tanks. So at least one of them has survived!

All

Yesterday we received the shipment of around 400 rainbow trout eggs from TU and got the 2015 trout in the classroom project kicked off. This year are up to 4 tanks in Katy ISD schools. We have Kathleen Brown running a tank in her aquatic sciences class at Katy HS again. She is our original teacher that started the program off with us 4 years ago and that many of you have met at the mini-expo events. Sharon Carswell is running a tank for the second year at Mayde Creek HS also in an aquatic sciences class. Over at Seven Meadows HS, Carlton Colmenares is running a tank for the first time in his AP Science class. We had intended the fourth tank to go in Cinco HS, also in an AP Science class, however due to last minute hiccups this tank is now running in a second aquatic sciences classroom, also at Katy HS. Thanks to Coach Williams for stepping in at the last minute to help out.

Here are some picture from each of the classrooms. I will be keeping everyone updated on the trout progress and the planned release in the Guad in April/May.

Cheers
Matt
