Texas FlyFishers of Houston Event: South Llano River float trip
When: 28-29 June, 2019
Where: 171 KC 150, Junction, Tx
Float the South Llano River, targeting Guadalupe Bass, Rio Grand Perch, and feisty sunfish.
Limited to 10 spots in the cabins. Deposit for lodging locks the spot.
Tent camping is still available, and encouraged.
I don’t plan to send the E-vite out, but the Evite Link is active. Please use it, as it makes it easier for me to track. See below to reserve your spot in a cabin. River conditions need to be checked a few days before the event.
Start Time: Friday afternoon 1500
End Time: Sunday at noon, or as close to it as we can get.

Trip Description: See below…
Day 1: The first meeting of the trip will be at: Bon Ton Roulet Cabins, 171 KC 150, Junction, Texas, 76849
We’ll meet at this area getting our casting skills honed, and practicing with various flies. Bratwurst on the grill for dinner at our camp.
Day 2: Launch from second crossing US-377 down to KC150. This is just a little over 3 miles of water, and is very easy to get a lot of good fishing in.

Day 3: First crossing bridge where the river crosses US 377. We will fish downstream to the second crossing. Or we could retrace our steps from day 2.
