2019-06 South Llano River trip report

The Texas FlyFishers Began arriving at camp at about 1300.

3 campers, 7 in the cabins, 1 day tripper.  9 kayaks on the water.

One swimmer. One pair of shoes are now “sole-less”. One pair of wading boots gave up the ghost. Only one fly rod snapped, but amazingly, it went back together.

Fish were caught, but the numbers were lower than last year.  We are blaming the flood.

Fishing this weekend, 28-30 June 2019

Just because you aren’t able to make the 5  hour trip to the South Llano this weekend doesn’t mean that you can’t take advantage of our local waters.

So far I’ve had 4 people contact me about fishing locally this weekend.  I had to decline as I’m out west.

Post up on here, or another forum, and get these guys on the water!

“Puck”

JSSFS 2019, report

5 campers sat around the campfire and had way more food than was good for them.

Fishing was good Friday.

Matt was on hand Thursday and Friday, helping get all prepared for the invasion of friends on Saturday.  This event couldn’t have gone so well without his help.

Some loud person decided to yell “Fish On!” at 0500 Saturday morning.

Sign-in started at 0700, with Q, Russell C. and John P. manning the greeter’s table.  Thanks John P. for the kolaches and donuts! Coffee and donuts at the table was a great idea.

Yellow spider seemed to work well, as did many other flies.

VIP popper brought a lot of LMB to hand

28 anglers signed in for the event

At lunch while the food was being prepared the bald eagle made a visit, as did the resident osprey.

We call this the “John Scarborough Sunfish Spectacular” but we just couldn’t keep the bass off of our flies.

Don H. landed the largest confirmable bluegill brought to hand on Saturday, a 10½” monster that was CPR’ed.
