Long Photo Essay - Today's Trout in Classroom Results

Our TIC program in Texas has grown to 20 classrooms. Since January, these classrooms have been raising rainbow trout from eggs in refrigerated aquariums. Today all the schools from Houston and Katy, along with Brandeis HS in SA brought their trout fry to the river. I know there were some jealous GRT...

Re: We need Rain !

that's a great link - a lot better than Intellicast daily precip, which I've always used for planning hill country fishing trips (esp white bass)

Re: White Bass

Texas kayak fisherman and corpusfishing are reporting them on both sides of Lake Corpus Christi.
A few staging fish are being caught above Canyon in deeper water.
This rain could kick a good run.

Re: We need Rain !

cut that out - you wouldn't believe the rain I drove through coming back from Cedar Park last weekend.
I finally broke down and went bike riding in the rain the other day.
Hope everybody got out yesterday, it was sure pretty.
Cold but nice weekend coming, and I'm heading to the Bryan tournament.

Re: What's In Your Fly Box for Guadalupe River Trout?

With the proviso that I rarely fish dries on the Guad, I think that you should think more about fly type than specific pattern. Any fly type can be tied to match a specific bug, but different fly types have different characteristics, strengths, and weaknesses. Having said that, my own preference is...

Re: What's In Your Fly Box for Guadalupe River Trout?

if you're fishing your wet fly as an attractor, with a smaller dropper, it may be working, anyway. If the attractor turns the fish, and the fish takes the dropper, both flies have done their job. A technique to have in your back pocket is skittering a crazy big dry fly - sofa pillow, hex pattern. Th...

Re: We need Rain !

Not sure if Alex is being facetious, but it truly was a blizzard, downed power lines, and not a good time to be driving because of almost zero visibility. I was out yesterday morning, there were felled trees, and many stranded cars both in my neighborhood and on the highway. The very good thing was ...

Re: We need Rain !

It's snowing heavy here. I set up the new Trout in the Classroom aquarium at Great Hearts Northern Oaks at 4pm. By the time I got home there was an inch of snow on the hood of my truck, and it only started snowing a few miles from home. https://imgur.com/xfz6Nne.jpg and this is after being parked on...
