Great trip with Kevin H down the Colorado R on June 26. Twelve members fishing, beautiful weather, outstanding lunch, and quite the variety of fish caught. A trip worth taking. See the full post for more details.
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......
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.
The Mini Expo has something for every fly fisher…
