Sabine River, generation canal, 2020-08-10 report

2 of us made the trip to Burkeville, TX to fish the generation canal:  Sabine River, generation canal

We were on the water and fishing by sunrise, ~0630.  Using a 5wt and a 6wt we immediately started catching fish.

The temperature started comfortable, with just a few vampires, but quickly warmed up as the sun came over the trees.

Largemouth bass, Kentucky bass, white bass, bluegill, and yellow sunfish all came to hand.  The topwater bite was explosive and almost constant all morning.  

The flies of the day were: VIP, bendbacks, yellow spiders, C-ants, and a few others.

Sabine River, generation canal

Sabine River, generation canal. I've checked the generation schedule and weather for Monday, 2020-08-10, and both are looking good.

I'm waiting on a fishing report from Crawford before pulling the trigger and making the trip.

I plan to launch my kayak at the "improved" boat launch and fish from the "no-go" wire down to the washtub.
