Taylor Guest, TFF’s Saltwater Outings Chairman, will lead a trip on Sat, April 30th to Lost Lake and Lost River Marsh. This local spot, Lost Lake and Lost River Marsh, can be a little finicky as it relates to freshwater influence due to its adjacency to the Trinity River. If the rain stays away, however, this marsh system can offer great opportunities at shallow reds in an area with relatively low pressure. The endless creeks and drains make everything seem fishy, and the invasion of giant cane keeps you protected from wind from almost every direction. This trip is great for kayakers and provides plenty of shallow water opportunities for boats as well. A note to the boaters, although there is plenty of fishable water for all boat sizes, smaller boats will have the best opportunity to get off the beaten path and find shots at shallow reds. A cool thing about this area: if the reds get pushed out by the fresh water, you can still have a great day throwing at buffalo, carp, and freshwater drum. They’ll eat a fly and bend a rod!
The sun will rise in Wallisville, Texas, around 6:37 AM, so let’s meet at the launch around 6:00 AM. Taylor will be there a little earlier if anyone wants to get an early start.
We will meet at the Hugo Point Boat Ramp – Hugo Point County Park, Hugo Park Rd, Baytown, TX 77523. Boaters and kayakers are welcome and can launch at this location.
Before we launch Taylor will go over the layout of the area and point the boaters and kayakers in the right direction.
No overnight accommodations will be scheduled for this, but you’re welcome to head down the night before. There are plenty of hotels in the area.
See you there, and tight lines!
