Brown and Root Flats – Outing report, June 19, 2021

Nine Fishers from the club participated in the Brown and Roots Flats outing in Port Aransas.  Fishing conditions were exceptional for sight fishing and fly casting.  Winds ranged from calm to 5 knots and sunshine and limited cloud cover allowed for outstanding visibility in the clear water with visibility to the bottom throughout the flat.  The water system was very healthy with many sightings of Atlantic Rays, sheepsheads, redfish, black drum and of course mullets.  There were vigorous growths of sea grass and sea lettuce too.  Surprisingly, there were very few other fishers on the flats and the club had it almost exclusively to ourselves.

Brown and Root Flats – June 19, 2021

We will meet up at 06:45am at the Hwy 361 launch site. Brown & Root flats is a shallow bay of a few thousand acres with water depths of 6” to 2.5 ft when we will be there. Clear water and sight casting are regular here. This, combined with the grassy and sandy bottom keeps the water clear and should allow you the opportunity to sight cast to fish. The numerous spoil islands and some pipelines should provide ample opportunity to explore the area and enjoy a peaceful day of fishing. Be sure and keep your eyes along the prop scars, the fish like to sneak along these. Wade fishing in general has good bottom. If you’re in mud, move out and you will find firmer wading. Google Earth or maps show good details and can help map out a secret strategy
