More Fishing Fun!

Happy Valentine's Day to our Readers. This edition we added videos of the White Bass action posted by Texas fisherman. The recent rains may have things confused, but as soon as the rain lets up, we are certain more trout reports will be forthcoming! Also, don't forget about the trout action in Oklahoma - specifically, the Lower Illinois, Lower Mountain Fork, and Blue Rivers!

Fly Tying Suggestions


Near Deere Variant ...is tied using the same material as the Olive Near Deere but uses one black marabou plume and no chenille. Instead, the marabou plume is used in place of the chenille. The pattern works for stocker trout in our area, and skipping the chenille makes for a quicker tie. Do check out the steps on how to tie the Black Near Deere Variant at StockerTroutFishing.com!

Rainbow Midge by Turning Stones Fly Fishing is a pattern to keep in your backpocket. It's simpler and faster to tie than the Rainbow Warrior. And, so far, it seems just as effective on trout! For more details on tying this pattern, check the YouTube video by Turning Stones Fly Fishing!

Upcoming Fly Fishing Events in March!


TRWD Fly Fest  is happening again this year on the banks of the Trinity River in Fort Worth.
