Willow Waterhole sampling shows a thriving fishery

I participated in a fish sampling this past Tuesday and was amazed at the quality of the fishery that exists at the WILLOW WATERHOLE. img_2028We 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

Toledo Bend Annual Rendezvous – Nov 4-6, 2016

Invitation from Walter McClendon of the Pinewoods Fly Fishers 

Welcome again to the North Toledo Bend Rendezvous! Ttoledo-bend-annual-rendezvous-1he 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.
