The bayou is starting to grow again. Nobody has fished it in awhile due to high flow. If we do not get any more heavy rains for the next two weeks we should be able to fish a few spots without much of a problem. If the grass is too high I will suggest bringing your kayaks and fish the ponds. Also we have to be vigilant for "Mr. No Shoulders" too.

Golden- I haven't made it to the ponds recently. Is the water still as clear as it was when we first started fishing them?

Tracy & would love to go, but we are moving to Richmond that Saturday. One of these days, I hope to get a line in the water before I'm old. At least the new subdivision has a 3 acre pond where fishing is permitted.

Yes they are.

Took the rib there this past Saturday for her casting lesson with Marcos. Beautiful morning. I took my vintage 6wt Fenwick glass rod too. It really feels more like a 3-4wt in graphite. Anyway, he helped me tweak a couple things in my casting stroke because when I need to get out past about 70 feet or just make a 50 foot cast INTO the wind I tend to try and overpower my cast and throw tailing loops.

I got to fool around a bit and caught one nice, fat bluegill and had a bass break me off on a stick-up.

That was in the front pond? The back pond is getting covered in moss.  We need to sneak a couple grass carp into each pond. Boom - problem over!
