Trout in the Classroom – Fish Release

 

The trout in the classroom project conducted the fish release for all the TFF sponsored tanks on the horseshoe section of the Guadalupe on April 28th. Over all the schools released over 1200 trout around the 2-3in long mark. We had several teachers, students and parents in attendance. This marks the end of another successful program and one that has grown from one tank in one school to now 14 tanks spread across Houston from Deer Park to Klein Collins. We will start again in early January of 2019!

Trout In the Classroom Release Date

As you can see the club trout tanks continue to do well. We have lined up a release date for the fish in the Guadalupe on April 28th. This was the only date that I could coordinate between 7 different high schools where most could attend – however we may end up having more than one release if needed. If any club members are able to attend the release then please let me know!

Cheers

Matt

Pre-fished the JSSFS, 2018-04-04

Went to Damon 7 Lakes with Steve for a chance to check out the waters before the event:  John Scarborough Sunfish Spectacular, 2018

We were on the water at 0800 with the wind strongly out of north. The surface water temperature was in the 70s, and the clarity was amazing.  The bluegill were staging just of the weedline, and hungry.  The LMB were focused on food, and the day went well.

Over 50 fish came to hand with almost all of them hitting topwater flies.

One LMB went over 3, and one of the ‘gills was over 8″

Still watching the weather to see if I want to bring rain-gear for the Friday camping.
