Colorado River at Columbus, Texas, Saturday, May 16th
« on: March 21, 2015, 02:41:06 PM »
The May trip on the Colorado River at Columbus, Texas will be a day one trip on Saturday, May 16th.  It will be based from Howells Canoe Livery, and start off at 8:00am.  The float is 6.1 miles and if you rent a boat from Howells you will need to be off the water by 4:30pm, so you can turn it in by 5:00. 

Columbus is less than a hour West of Katy and makes a great day trip!  Check out the Howell's Canoe Livery (http://www.howellcanoe.com/)website for maps, rental rates, and other information about the stretch of water.  There is a map showing the 6.1 mile trip on the website.  I may make a run in a few weeks just because, I have not been fishing for a while.  Right now the river is blown, due to the recent rain.

Regards,
Ralph

To fish, or not to fish?  What a stupid question!

What equipment/flies do you recommend?
Hardheads? We don't need no stinking hardheads!

I would suggest anything from a 5wt to an 8wt with a floating line.  The 8wt could be real handy throwing into the wind that I expect to have in the afternoon.  The river is wider and more open than up stream and is more effected by the wind.  As for flies, good sized Streamers and Poppers for Bass.  I suppose if want to fish for Sunfish, smaller Poppers, Spiders, and Nymphs like you use at the Sunfish Spectacular.  Last year in mid-May, the fellow I was fishing with, had a yellow foam popper (about 2" long) that was killing them.
