Brown lines were REALLY brown!
« on: December 23, 2011, 03:22:02 PM »
Wandered up to White Oak bayou in the Woodland Oaks area, today. Thought I might find some clearing water. No luck. Visibility was around 5" at best. Tossed a chartreuse woolly bugger for an hour and decided to come back when the water is clearer.  Called Golden and we're kicking around the idea of trying Monday, depending on how much rain we get this weekend.

About 10 or more years ago, on the Montgomery County Fly Rodders web site, I remember reading about fishing this type of condition, for cat fish. Since they feed by feel a lot.

When you get  heavy runoff the big yellow cats will go on a feed.

There was a picture of a 45 lb yellow cat this fisherman caught on a fly rod and a rattling fly.
