Trip report, South Llano River float trip, 2021

We chose to launch at the second crossing, with a launch start of 0730. Everything was working fairly well. 2 pots of coffee were quickly consumed with the breakfast casserole that Larry made. This year we chose to once again do the livery on our own. Load as many kayaks on trailers and run up to the launch point. Unload everything, bring the trailers back, and have only one car drop off the trailer haulers. It almost worked too. Next year, we should be able to do a bit better. The first pool had every single one of us stop and fish. For some reason we never do get by this spot easily. Once we starting catching fish, the pressure of the "skunk" was off, and the group was relaxed enough to continue downstream. More, and pictures, below......

Brown and Root Flats – Outing report, June 19, 2021

Nine Fishers from the club participated in the Brown and Roots Flats outing in Port Aransas.  Fishing conditions were exceptional for sight fishing and fly casting.  Winds ranged from calm to 5 knots and sunshine and limited cloud cover allowed for outstanding visibility in the clear water with visibility to the bottom throughout the flat.  The water system was very healthy with many sightings of Atlantic Rays, sheepsheads, redfish, black drum and of course mullets.  There were vigorous growths of sea grass and sea lettuce too.  Surprisingly, there were very few other fishers on the flats and the club had it almost exclusively to ourselves.

Celebration, 24th July, 2021, looking for a few volunteers

Our club was founded in 1976 so we have made plans to celebrate the founding's 45th anniversary this July 24th at a fairly local state park. The state park has a fishable lake. Boats, kayaks, canoes, etc. can all be launched. Hot dogs, hamburgers, chips, drinks, will be provided. We also plan to have door prizes, and more, on hand. Evite link sent out to members in good standing as of 2021-06-04.

Fishing Report: Taylor River, Colorado, submitted by Paul Robertson

Fishing the Taylor River, Colorado Dates: April 13-16, 2021 Fly Fishermen: Joe Nicklo (leader, sage, and experienced fisherman), John Scarcelli (experienced, patient trout fisherman), Steve Edwards (has done a lot to trout fishing, but mostly with a guide), and Paul Robertson (the rookie at trout fishing). We began planning this trip back in February, when we were able to take advantage of some $98 round trip tickets to Denver, CO, on Southwest Airlines. And we also all realized that we would all be Covid-19 vaccinated by then.
