Contrary to the name there are now nine different, unique lakes of good size that hold largemouth bass, tiger bass, catfish, black crappie, and bluegill. Catching bass in the three to five pound range is a normal occurrence. Twelve pound bass and channel cats and twelve inch bream have been caught in the last three years.”

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
