Fishing with Ewell Nov. 8th

Post by jacofish » Mon Nov 16, 2009 6:33 pm

Picture of secret location.
Image
on the water after rigging up
Image
The water upstream looked really good, but got too deep.
Image
A little sunny.
Image
My first fish of the day that I landed.
Image
Ewell with another.
Image
A nice sunny.
Image
Can't wait to come back with a kayak.
Image
And looking downstream.
Image
We thought we heard some thunder, and after Ewell checked his phone we realized that the clouds were actually headed our way.
Image
The final downstream stretch.
Image
Is it fall or was this just from the drought?
Image
Another good day on the water, thanks to Ewell.
Kiss My Bass!

I love Ewell's hat, that thing could double as a tent!
The Bald Cypress are fine. They drop their leaves every fall and grow them back in the spring. They are also falling on the Guadlupe tailrace area and they cause all kinds of difficulties with our fishing and especially nymph/indicator fishing until they clear out in a couple of weeks.

Nice photos. I'm no expert, but my guess as to why the trees have drastically changed this year compared to other years, is the drought paralleled with the early freeze and colder weather that we are experiencing. Like I said it's just my theory.

No, this is really a natural and yearly process they go through just like other deciduous trees.
They are techniquely Taxodium Distichum.
