The following briefly summarizes current fishing trends in our area:

  • Rowlett Creek - Sandy run continues with limits reported. Recent rains may make conditions harder as well as the temperature drop today may change things as well. FYI: Boards are heating up with "April Fool's Day" reports, so do consider the source of info before changing and/or making plans!

  • Blue River (OK) - Reports this week indicate Trout  are still being caught; however, it looks like fishermen are shifting to warm water fish with lots of Carp reports coming in!

  • Possum Kingdom - Last report of PK is that the Tailrace continues to produce Stripers. If in the area, would give it a chance and see if a Bruiser or two will bite!

  • Denison Dam - Had a report that the Generation Schedule was settling out  allowing for a chance at fishing the lull when the generators are idle. But, two generators are online today as of 3PM today. Will continue to hold on wade fishing for Striped Bass. Stick to the Surf Casting Rods (or at least bring them if going).

  • Community Lakes and Ponds - The Bass bite remains good with lots of activity in the shallows and beds. Reports of Bruisers being caught and released keep coming in; however, the majority of reports are smaller Bass (less than 14" ). That said, reports of Bluegill are starting to come in... looks like Spring is upon us!

  • Free Kindle Books - Received several reports of Kindle books that are available for brief periods of time at zero cost. So far, was able to download two books - "The Essential Fishing Knots" and "Monster Shallow-Water Stripers". For more details, see the links in the Feld Reports section.


Fly Tying Demo of the Bent Back Clouser Variant we tested out recently. So far, the pattern is effective on Bass in our area. More plans to test it out more, but at this time, we are liking it.  Works well when working the shallows to about three feet deep, and is surprisingly weedless which may come in handy once the "green stuff" starts growing fast in local ponds!

Rowlett Creek Sandbass spawn seems to be the main focus in our area. In keeping with this trend, here is a recent video posted on YouTube that shows some of the action!

61st Street Fishing Pier in Galveston has been a favorite fishing spot for the Field Team. As warmer weather approaches, here is a recent video posted recently on YouTube of some of the action - a Black Tip Shark being caught!
