Trip Description: Fishing the Sabine River below the generation canal. We plan to fish the generation canal, but if the generators start up we will quickly shift our efforts to the lake. Launch and take-out will be the either the new boat launch on the generation canal. Species targeted are , LMG, KLMB, yellow sunfish, white bass, gar (3 species), catfish (2 species) and, if extremely lucky, striped bass.
19 people made the trip. Only one person didn’t feel up to making the float, and we hope she feels better soon. This left 18 members on kayaks floating, and fishing the chosen stretch of river.
Everybody on the water by 0800
3 broken rods
2 first aid
2 slip and trips
One lost, and then recovered spinning rod
One broken paddle
One accidentally inflated life jacket
Hundreds of fish caught. Largemouth Bass, Guadalupe Bass, bluegill, Rio Grande Perch, and catfish were all brought to hand. Ken hooked a carp, and one person lined, and somebody almost hooked, a gar.
Off the water by 2015, but if you want to know more….
Due to the water conditions this event is canceled.
We will try to make this event a late January, early February SW event.
This year’s Bud Priddy One Fly Tournament should be much like last year’s.
Fishing will be at one or all of the road crossing on the Nueces near Camp Wood.
There will be great prizes for longest bass, longest perch (sunfish), and most fish. There will also be door prizes and raffle/auction prizes.
Shown here are a lot of the pictures taken at the John Scarborough Sunfish Spectacular:

David Cross is one of the newest members of TFF. This was his first time flyfishing. He won the “door prize.” I think he is hooked.
