SLP 2020-10-03 trip report

Nine of us made the San Luis Pass Saltwater outing with the Texas Fly Fishers of Houston on Saturday, October 3rd. We met at 7:00 AM at the San Luis County Park to begin fishing. There were two boats, three kayaks and a paddle board. Two eager fishers (diehards!) had arrived early and waited for the rest of the group to arrive; they were prepped to go! There were many solitary redfish in the marsh but they had the sixth sense. By the time you saw them – they’d seen/heard you and were speeding away at Mach 1! The marsh was really skinny water and consequently there were no motor boats observed there during the outing. Some of the anglers reported good action first thing in the morning but noticed the bite slowed down by about 10 AM.

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.
