This is THE family friendly event of the year! Join us for the annual chance to capture the John Scarborough Sunfish Spectacular Trophy and a decent feed on Saturday the 17th of April (date is confirmed) at Damon Seven Lakes. Fishing from the shore, but float tubes and kayaks are quite successful. Contrary to the name there are now nine different, unique lakes of good size that hold largemouth bass, tiger bass, catfish, black crappie, and bluegill. Catching bass in the three to five pound range is a normal occurrence. Twelve pound bass, decent channel cats, and twelve inch bream have been caught in the last three years.

As we near the end of March, two successful fly fishing events are in the 2021 record book; Texas Fly Fishing & Brew Festival held in Mesquite and TRWD FLYFEST in Fort Worth. Both of these events were cancelled for 2020 due to the pandemic. We also have Oktoberfisch 2021 to look forward to on October 15-17. This event is produced by the newly named Texas Hill Country Fly Fishers of Fredericksburg and Kerrville. Don’t miss the article in this newsletter about the transformation of two Texas FFI clubs.

Got to try my new 5 weight out on a squirrel today. Tie a peanut on the leader and have some fun. Only downside is they chew up the leader quickly. Eric
10 anglers sat around the campfire after fishing on Friday. A lot of fish were caught, mostly white bass. Yellow bass, largemouth bass, freshwater drum, gar, and buffalo also came to hand. On Saturday the rest of the crew arrived. The count I have is 22 TTF folks on the water on Saturday. The fly of the day seemed to be a version of the Cowen’s Coyote, in a size 8. There is probably a list of flies that worked that day. If it was small, and looked alive, it seemed to catch fish.
On Saturday, 20-March-2021, six club members participated in the monthly saltwater outing to West Galveston Bay. Four members met at the Waterman’s Marina at about 7:30 AM and launched from that boat ramp while two members launched from the adjacent Galveston Island State Park. Conditions were clear with temperatures in the morning in the low … Continue reading Trip Report – Saltwater Outing @ West Galveston Bay
