Change of plans:

We have reservations at Morgan Shady Park in Junction, Tx. for Friday and Saturday nights.

We have one two cabins, that will sleep 7 each ( I plan to take the first 2 slot)  and a campsite for tents, close by.

The first 5 12 guys that are willing to pay up for the A/C get the first slots, with a standby list for any others interested. 

Bring your own bedroll, and towels.

More details to follow

I won't be able to.

Do we have a leader for this one yet?

Puck


Nothing heard.

Do we still want to make this trip?

Signed up, spoke with Mike/Mike, looking forward to a great time! If anyone wants to share the cost of a hotel room, let me know. Otherwise, I'll drive down early Saturday.

52 people signed in, and had lunch.

4 from San Antonio, 2 from our High School group.  The remainder from the Texas FlyFishers, and current members of Damon 7 Lakes.

One of the groups from San Antonio camped out in a tent.  I also stayed overnight, and pre-fished the day before.

The weather forecast said that there would be rain.  The forecast was wrong about the rain, but the wind and cloud cover they got right.  Once you found a protected area, you could cast.  Another option was to make a heroic roll cast with the wind at your back.

The winner of the event was George S. with a 9+ inch bluegill.  Yes there is a photo. 

Harry C. gave some of his fishing time to educate 3 people new to the sport.  One of those was a high-schooler that had never fished before.  Every time I watch him teach, I am impressed with his patience, his ability to explain how fly casting works, and I learn something new every time.

Lunch was gumbo, rice, fried fish, chips, and hot dogs.  There was plenty of food, and even more fun.

More details shortly.

Tomorrow morning looks promising.

The bluegills are on the bed, and the overcast skies will make it comfortable temperatures.

We may get some rain late in the day.

See you there!

Tight lines.

Not recommended...lots of water less than 2' deep, the kayakers are going to cover miles per day not likely to do that in a "belly tube". Limestone river bottom not good for tubes, derneer fabric or not. If water levels are down you may end up walking or "portaging" alot.

And there is a couple of stretches that are "dead water" with no flow.  These would take hours to get through with a kick-boat or belly-boat.

Joe, George and I as well as some of the other TFF'ers are talking about taking our boats over and spending the better part of a week over there fishing. I spoke with Scott N. and said we would hire him for a couple of days to show us the area and then we would dyi after that. We found some on the water cabins that sleep 4 for around 175.00 per night.  Boat slip right under the cabin.  Empire area. You in! We have not set a date yet but we're thinking closer to early December. Anyways just a thought.
