Kayak fishing the Lone Star State...


#2243800
Going to drive up to BB on the 18th for a couple of days to relax and do some fishing.

I have never been there, but have heard good things about it. Any hints or tips from you guys on where to fish or things I should be aware of or look out for? I'm staying in a cabin in the park.

I caught a 20" Rainbow in a deep hole just downstream from a road in the fly fishing area. Using a San Juan worm. Caught 2 nice Brown trout on Panther Martin in the river near the cabins. I fished for awhile in a kayak until I got yelled at by a park ranger. Bass were swimming around everywhere. Can only kayak fish below the Regulation Dam. The river near the cabins and downstream is full of fish. However, it is hard to fish and you can't when they are generating. Saw a lot of nice trout and little trout, but they would not even look at a fly. These were all in the trout creeks below the spillway. We stayed in a cabin on the river below the generating discharge.

There is a fly shop on the highway turn in and there was one in the park. They can give some hints on where and what to use.

Call beavers bend fly shop and ask what flies have been working lately. Guys there are really nice. Last time I was there egg patterns worked well. Also take a few fries with you just in case. I had good luck on elm hair caddis flies tied with some kind of dropper underneath. Just be careful fishing the lower part because they release water sometimes and you better get the heck out of there. Also, wear big spray because ticks suck...don't ask me how I know.

Thanks. I planned on dropping by the fly shop to get some info and picking up some flies to show my appreciation.
