I haven't posted any fish lately, so I though I would. Actually my fishing truck been down for the last three weeks or so and I haven't been able to get to my favorite sections, but I do live next to the river so I can always go fishing. Unfortunately this area isn't holding the bigger bass right now so I've been messing with the bream and started tying my own poppers. I did see a great deal on a 4wt setup and have been haveing fun with that.
Low water and low flow this year has the grass thicker than usual. This is by a big island. The other side has the better flow.
But the fish are in there. A popper in the holes will produce.
In a lot of places the water is crystal clear.
Since I've started fly fishing I really haven't targeted bream much. I'm always after the big bass, but since there aren't that many in this area I figured I'd give the little guys a try. They are beautiful fish.
There are some decent bass around. I had to give up my Clousers, they want the popper. Definitely a fun way to fish.
The Guadalupe/SM hybrid
Alamo Vine - this bush has been around for at least 10 years.
I'm also a fossil hunter and after a few rises in the water earlier this year some new stuff washed out on the gravel bars. Last weeks finds were some petrified wood and a crinoid jumble. The crinoids are not from this area and have washed down some 120+ miles down river from the Llano area.
Well, that's what I've been stuck doing lately.
