The trout continue to do well (although we have had some losses thanks to school maintenance crews unplugging filters and chillers and not plugging them back in)! As you can see from the video these mini rainbows are healthy and active. We are starting to look at release dates for May on the trout section of the Guadalupe. If any club members would like to help out then please let me know.
March 25th 2017, Texas FlyFishers’ Freshwater outing at Harmon Creek
The water was high and muddy due to all the rain the day prior.
8 Texas FlyFishers braved the water conditions and got in a lot of casting practice, but no fish to hand. Continue reading
Our speaker for the March 28, 2017 monthly meeting will be Van Beacham. Van is a fly fisher, guide, instructor, outfitter, fisheries manager and author who has been guiding anglers in NM, CO and WY since 1982. In 1984, Van started leasing private fisheries and in 1986 he founded the Solitary Angling Club, a private fly fishing club whose members have access to all the private waters he leases and owns in NM, CO and WY. The Solitary Angler and Van’s mission is to provide “Superior Fly Fishing Without the Crowds” for anglers of all skill levels. Van also co-authored Fly Fishing in Northern New Mexico and wrote the Fly Fisher’s Guide to New Mexico considered by many to be the “go-to” book for all information regarding fly fishing in New Mexico. So, if you are interested in learning more about fly fishing in New Mexico, Colorado and Wyoming or if you just want to watch some fly tying before the meeting and listen to an interesting speaker or if you just want to socialize with some friendly fly fishermen and women, come on out to the March 28, 2017 monthly meeting; we would be glad to have you attend.
I haven’t wet a line in Clear Lake since I was a kid in Webster back in the early 1970s. I’m thinking about taking the kayak there Saturday, if the weather is conducive. Anyone interested in going? Also, does anyone have any tips on the area? Back in my youth, I fished off the point where the Nassau Bay Hilton is now, but that is completely changed.
I’m thinking about taking the kayak & 8 wt down to Ernie’s Too on Sunday morning and seeing if anything is going on in Christmas Bay. If anyone is interested in meeting up, let me know.
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL…….
LaWe have been invited by our friends down in the RGV to their tournament at South Padre Island September 10th. I personally will be heading down either Thursday night or Friday morning with my boat. The LMFF are a great group of guys. I highly recommend the trip!
