I just got back from Matagorda Island. The ferry is not working, but the park service is supposed to have an individual making the run back and forth starting the 25th I believe. You should be able to call the park service and find out. The fishing is great, The highlight was a 32" red in ankle deep water. Would have been much better, the wind was blowing at least 20 knots Thurs and Fri. Water was fairly clear considering the wind. The place looks great for fly fishing. I have never saw as many tails in one area. They were feeding in very shallow water surrounded by grass. Extremely hard to get close enough with a lure w/o spooking them. If camping be very aware of the weather. An unexpected storm came in Friday night. Would love to know what the winds were. Moved my kayak about 70 ft, stopped when it hit my tent. Thank god the wind wasn't from the other direction, would still be looking for my kayak. Bring mosquito repellant and prepare for alot of grass.
