stand in the chute and troll a sinking line won't hurt a bit.... the water is inviting. The eutrophic conditions that were making all the green algae seem to be settling down and the water is clearing up... look at this shellcracker that Ewell caught in the still water http://img.photobucket.com/alb...

upper Guadalupe has been fishing fine. little spotted bass are piled up in the bottoms of pools and anywhere the water is making noise. The narrow quick water is definately fishing the best. (Mike actually has a little largemouth there) http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v728/bulldog1935/decoy/fish/m...

so many bridges, so little time... http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v728/bulldog1935/decoy/fish/rb002c2.jpg (this fish really is blue - it's a hybrid between a largemouth and endemic Guadalupe spotted bass) I never met a spotted bass I didn't like http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v728/bulldog1935/...

I caught another this weekend and heard of two more caught, including a small striper. I'm thinking the rains are triggering false runs - it didn't rain at all in the spring.

for me it was Lake LBJ in the the aluminum semi-vee with Evinrude 9-1/2. Need to show you my 1951 Wards Hunting and Fishing catalog - you'd flip over the old boats, not to mention the rods and reels. On that rod, the first guide, BTW, is a big red agate in a nickel-silver ring. yes, the Meek reel is...

I was out Sunday, trout fished a bit, then took a 6" castaic rainbow lure to a known striper hole and cast it for about an hour - no takes.
I plan to keep hauling that rig around and using it on and off.

although I still refer to a few older books, including Dave Hughes series on hatches and nymphs...I mostly do this when I travel. I find myself tying fewer and fewer patterns, based on results. I try to keep it simple.

last winter, and then all summer long, I've had very good luck with a BWO nymph I found in American Angler last year. I tie it on a short-shank scud hook, size 18 (Tiemco 2457). Tiny bead head, orange glass or copper, hackle fiber tail - long, it's a BWO. The body is 2 strands of forest green Flasha...

letting the cat out of the bag

green-and-gray cat's whisker
