Date locked.

Let's plan this one.  Last year was a rain out.  But we still caught fish.

Hmmm, two weekends of fly fishing in a row? Sounds like a good month to me! I'm in...
Hardheads? We don't need no stinking hardheads!

Launch point

This takes you to Google (R) maps.  Use this to find directions.

For first timers to the area, I'd recommend staying in Jasper, Tx, and make the trip early in the morning to the launch site.

There are places to camp, but these take a little more gear, and planning.

How practical are kayaks here? Or is better to rock-hop?

Kayak, kickboats, and canoes, are perfect for these waters.

I've use all 3. 

1.  Do you want to cover more water, or expore?
    a.  Use a kayak. 

2.  Fishing with a partner, or like to take a large cooler?
   a.  Use a canoe.

3.  Stealth,  minimum gear?
   a.  A kickboat.

There is now an improved dirt road all the way to the river.  We will be able to get 4WDs all the way to the water to launch.

Generation Canal of Toledo Bend

I'll be there about 2013-09-21-0700 with coffee brewing

Somebody bring breakfast?

Google maps says it's 2 hours 50 minutes from my house which means it's really 2:20-2:30. I think I'll enjoy my own bed and roll out between 4-4:30 Saturday AM. Forecast says 70% chance of rain on Friday and 40% on Saturday- hopefully that holds off some.

Looks like I have to back out on this one. My father asked me to help him with some stuff and it has to get done this weekend.

I was really looking forward to this trip. I may have to make a solo trip there in October.
