10 anglers sat around the campfire after fishing on Friday. A lot of fish were caught, mostly white bass. Yellow bass, largemouth bass, freshwater drum, gar, and buffalo also came to hand. On Saturday the rest of the crew arrived. The count I have is 22 TTF folks on the water on Saturday. The fly of the day seemed to be a version of the Cowen’s Coyote, in a size 8. There is probably a list of flies that worked that day. If it was small, and looked alive, it seemed to catch fish.

TFF was supposed to go the the Nueces, but we had a crazy winter freeze. I need to get out on the water so next Wednesday, 2021-02-24-0800, I plan to fish Harmon Creek for white bass. This is not an official TFF trip, but there is safety in numbers.
New owners have been doing a great job of getting ready for the 2021 fishing season. The grass is cut, the parking areas are clear. It is looking good, and the work continues. I got a late start and was able to launch easily. The water was very low, but extremely clear. I made it up to "Brighty Blue" bay dragging across a few sandbars. All of the white bass that came to hand were undersized males. I did also land a few decent black bass. The fly that worked was an SF fiber Clouser, size 10, in rainbow. I did try the coyote clouser, but the water was so clear that it actually spooked the fish.
Topwater in January at Damon 7 Lakes....surprising to me.
Fishing report on Jan 15-16 Lake Bastrop.....Fishing was good; catching was slow. Temps on Sat morning were rather cold.
Texas FlyFishers will once again make a trip to Damon 7 Lakes in 2020 Cooler weather and biting fish are something we look forward to every year.
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.
This little guy was caught on the shoreline of a local pond. He and his brothers are targets for the predators. Match the hatch!
