Trout were spawning as I took Lilly for a walk. I had just saw a nice (20+”) fish before I picked up the camera.
4 of us made it to Harmon Creek as a “Plan B.” Continue reading
I’ve been experimenting with a new material and tied up a few of these. The question I have, what do I throw them in front of? Continue reading
These are the flies that I depend on to catch fish reliably in freshwater. Below is a brief description of each.
Texas FlyFishers’ member Chris Bruttig is looking for interested members to join him on a fishing trip on horseback to the Gila Wilderness in New Mexico in July 2017.
Here’s Chris’ invitation…
I am putting together a horse packing trip into the Gila Wilderness for Gila Trout .We would be departing near Cliff Dwelling New Mexico. It would be a total of 8 days on the trail.
I participated in a fish sampling this past Tuesday and was amazed at the quality of the fishery that exists at the WILLOW WATERHOLE. We collected a variety of species including some large mouth bass, check out this nice specimen being displayed by Alice Best, fishery biologist with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Inland Fisheries Department. We also saw Sunfish, Shad, Tilapia, Carp and Armored Catfish.
The fish were in catchable numbers and size to justify a nice morning or afternoon’s effort.
Any one needing directions or tips on the fishing please feel free to call me . Mike Frankoff- 713-553-3003
Please see the following notice from Alice Best with Texas Parks and Wildlife about a sampling and stocking activity at Willow Waterhole on Tuesday, November 1.
Join us if you can. If you need directions call me but the launch spot is just in the main gate that is accessed off Chimney Rock and Dryad.
Perfect weather, but the catching was slow. He put to hand 2 rainbows in the short time we were there.
You suddenly have a couple of unscheduled hours. Continue reading
Invitation from Walter McClendon of the Pinewoods Fly Fishers
Welcome again to the North Toledo Bend Rendezvous! The date is Friday afternoon, November 4th thru Sunday morning, November 6th, 2016. Rendezvous is the result of several fly fishermen gathering to fish and tie flies at the state park many years ago. After a couple of years of growing pains they found the park’s group facility. And what a facility indeed!
A capacity of 150 people in 5 heated log bunkhouses (30 beds each), a heated central shower and restroom building with nice night lighting on all the sidewalks and a large main log building with A/C, a commercial kitchen, dining hall, fireplace, a long front porch, picnic table and a large barbecue trailer out front.
