We fish here at least twice a year, but it looks like it may be a while before we can get kayaks or canoes into the river.

Toledo Bend Reservoir – Operations
Persons having interests in the Sabine River Basin below the reservoir are hereby advised that on Wednesday, December 19, 2018 at 0730 hours, the reservoir elevation was 172.34 ft. MSL. Currently, both generators are operating 24 hours per day.
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.”
When: April 27th, 2019
Add this to your calendar:
6 people signed up, but we had 19 fishing the event.
Everybody caught fish, but the fishing was slow. “Puck” only caught 27.
Large-mouthed bass, red-ear sunfish, bluegill, and tilapia all came to hand. Some of the largest fish hit top-water flies, and even more hit sub-surface.
Weather is going to be much better than our April trip.
