Lake Bastrop – North Shore Park, Fri-Sun Sept 27-29, 2019 (UPDATE)

Lake Bastrop - Sept 27-29
We will fish Lake Bastrop on Fri, Sat, and probably Sun morning. I have reserved two airstream trailers (Lady Bird and Blue Lacy (60 and 62) ) at Lake Bastrop North Shore Park for Fri and Sat nights. (Sept 28-29) My plan fish in the morning/afternoon on both Fri and Sat (and possibly Sun morning)....explore the whole lake. If you are not interested in camping overnight, come and join us for Fri or Sat or Sun.
I have rented two of the campground "Airstream" trailers for Fri and Sat nights. (Lady Bird and Blue Lacy) Each trailer has two queen beds, and can accommodate four (4) people.
The total (two day) cost for a spot in the trailer is $125. We will "share" dinner duties (most likely pot luck style), and leave breakfast and lunch up to the individuals.
Please sign-up per the below, either via phone call to John Eldred or the Evite link. I will collect the $125 at the time you sign up (or as close as possible). The first eight (8) people to sign up AND pay will fill the trailers.
Several of us made a day trip to Lake Bastrop earlier this year, and the lake is very fishable via kayak, canoe, or boat. All are welcome.

2019-07 Lake Raven Outing report

TFF members began arriving at about 0630 Friday morning at the boat ramp.  I counted 8 of us on the water before noon.
The LMBs (large-mouth bass) seemed to hit the larger flies, frogs, poppers, etc. but there were a few larger fish caught on smaller flies. The weather held for the entire weekend with the occasional sprinkle, just cooling down the air, without drenching anything.

2019-06 South Llano River trip report

Pictures! Lots of fish caught. One swimmer. One pair of shoes are now "sole-less". One pair of wading boots gave up the ghost. Only one fly rod snapped, but amazingly, it went back together.

Fish were caught, but the numbers were lower than last year.  We are blaming the flood. With the water levels a few inches higher than last year the travel downstream was very easy.

Lodging was a special treat. The facilities were clean, and well laid out.  The area near the water was the best place to hang out.

Kayak/Canoe Lake Raven – Huntsville St Park, Fri – Sat, July 12-13, 2019

Lake Raven: Kayak/Canoe trip.
I have reserved a Shelter site (S018) at Huntsville St Park for Fri and Sat nights. (July 12-13) My plan is to fish Friday and Sat, and overnight on both Friday and Sat. Fish in the morning/afternoon on both Fri and Sat....explore the whole lake. You can come Fri, Sat, or both....either spend the night, or just join for the day. Your option.
The Shelter can accommodate "tent cots". I will set up my tent on the outside grounds. The site permit allows for eight (8) people. If more are interested, I will reserve individual tent sites and we can use the "shelter" as a common area. I am thinking of a "pot luck" type dinner on Sat (possible also Fri) if there is enough interest.
