2019-06 South Llano River trip report

The Texas FlyFishers Began arriving at camp at about 1300.

3 campers, 7 in the cabins, 1 day tripper.  9 kayaks on the water.

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.

Report out: Lake Raven – Huntsville St Park, Fri, May 3, 2019

TRIP REPORT: A great morning.  Four kayakers arrived at 630am, as planned, and were in the water fishing by ~715am.  Fishing was good, with 13 largemouth bass and over 50 perch caught on top water (VIP poppers and spiders).  Five (5) of the lmb were 3+lbs…nice fish.  Beautiful lake, only a couple other kayaks and one boat. Even had a couple alligator sightings, but no issues.

We got pushed off the water by weather at about 11am….rain started with some thunder in the distance.  Made a good decision and packed up.  But the morning was worth it.

The lake and campground are very nice.  Easy drive from Hou, very nice boat ramp, lots of parking and camping.  A really good weekday trip….never been there on the weekend so hard to comment, but I suspect it gets a little more traffic…..We WILL do it again.  See pictures below:

JSSFS 2019, report

5 campers sat around the campfire and had way more food than was good for them.

Fishing was good Friday.

Matt was on hand Thursday and Friday, helping get all prepared for the invasion of friends on Saturday.  This event couldn’t have gone so well without his help.

Some loud person decided to yell “Fish On!” at 0500 Saturday morning.

Sign-in started at 0700, with Q, Russell C. and John P. manning the greeter’s table.  Thanks John P. for the kolaches and donuts! Coffee and donuts at the table was a great idea.

Yellow spider seemed to work well, as did many other flies.

VIP popper brought a lot of LMB to hand

28 anglers signed in for the event

At lunch while the food was being prepared the bald eagle made a visit, as did the resident osprey.

We call this the “John Scarborough Sunfish Spectacular” but we just couldn’t keep the bass off of our flies.

Don H. landed the largest confirmable bluegill brought to hand on Saturday, a 10½” monster that was CPR’ed.
