Trout In The Classroom update

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.

Cheers

Matt

Clear Lake this Saturday?

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.
