Report out: Lake Raven – Huntsville St Park, Fri, May 3, 2019

TRIP REPORT: A great morning.  Four kayakers arrived at 630am, as planned, and were in the water fishing by ~715am.  Fishing was good, with 13 largemouth bass and over 50 perch caught on top water (VIP poppers and spiders).  Five (5) of the lmb were 3+lbs…nice fish.  Beautiful lake, only a couple other kayaks and one boat. Even had a couple alligator sightings, but no issues.

We got pushed off the water by weather at about 11am….rain started with some thunder in the distance.  Made a good decision and packed up.  But the morning was worth it.

The lake and campground are very nice.  Easy drive from Hou, very nice boat ramp, lots of parking and camping.  A really good weekday trip….never been there on the weekend so hard to comment, but I suspect it gets a little more traffic…..We WILL do it again.  See pictures below:

Event: East Matagorda Bay – 3 Mile Lake area

Trip Description: Kayak fishing for redfish, speckled trout, and sheephead.

Once you get off the beach past the dunes, driving is usually okay. A permit is required for beach driving and you can get one at Stanley’s for about 10 or 12 bucks.

2018 Lydia Ann Fly Masters Tournament

From Steve E.

“I spent this last weekend working at a fly fishing retreat put on by Reel Recovery and Project Healing Waters for vets with cancer near San Antonio.  I got to know some of the guys from the Alamo Fly Fishers club.  Great bunch of guys.  They have a fishing tournament that they are sponsoring down at Port Aransas on October 27.  We need to add it to our website  and promote it to our club for the saltwater fisherman looking for a late October outing.  I attached the link. http://www.lydiaannflymasters.com. I’m also ccing Nick Scarpinato.  He is the President of the Alamo Fly Fishers in case you want more info.

Cheers,

Steve”
