2019-09, Padre Island Jetty Group Report

From Andrew Jones

Weather

The wind stayed at about 10 – 15 MPH – Maybe a bit more than that! The morning winds were lower and increased as the day progressed.  On Saturday, the wind may have had gusts up to 20 MPH as we watched a thunderstorm just offshore pass by.  I am not sure what the air temperature was, but it wasn’t too hot with the nice Gulf breeze. As far as rain, we didn’t get any at the jetties except for about 5 minutes of light rain about 6:30 AM Sunday morning.

Catching a little brown, trying to catch a Rio Grande cuthroat.

to Texas FlyFishers

Fishing the Pecos River at about 7,500 ft elevation at 18 miles above Pecos NM. Weather is 60 to 75 deg. With a rain shower every afternoon. Have caught and released over 30 trout, but no Rio Grande cut throats….
Kept and ate a few rainbows for dinner. Caught some lovely Browns which have naturalized up here to the detriment of the native cuthroats.Great place to be when Texas is too hot to fish.
