People! I can’t tell you what a major improvement in space and access the new location of Tailwaters is, especially for those of us who have to drive a long way just to get to Dallas. Not only is Tailwaters in a great location, it is now almost walking distance from the only other Dallas business I utilize – Competitive Cameras. Need a camera? Need a new fly rod? It’s my harmonic convergence. Go ahead and take your Chevy to the Levee.


Here’s some information you should know before YOU GO! Straight from Oklahoma Fish & Game Department.

Lower Mountain ForkJanuary 31. Elevation above normal, water 45 and murky. Trout good on PowerBait below the dam. Beaver’s Bend State Park is still closed. However, fishing is still open at Mountain Fork Park east of Broken Bow. Even with releases still ongoing from Broken Bow Lake, fishing has still been good on the lower parts of the river. Report submitted by Mark Hannah, game warden stationed in McCurtain County.

Lower Mountain ForkFebruary 2. Stocked approximately 2,360 rainbow trout on January 28. Report submitted by April Drake, secretary at the Southeast Regional Office.


I made a stop at Barlow’s in Dallas – on the southbound side of 75 just south of Belt Line Friday, and they have a shortage of some fly tying materials I take for granted. Specifically, kip tails seem to be in short supply, and I have been using that exclusively to tie the Clousers, like those I use during spring sand bass and hybrid runs. I am about to put a few new color combinations on the PoPs Fly Shop site specifically for the spring, so be sure to keep your eye on that site. If you’ve never been to Barlow’s – make sure you do go there next time you need to stock up. They don’t have everything, but what they do have is at the best prices anywhere. The quality is very good as well – it’s exactly the same merchandise you find at any big box location, but with a lot more of the interesting things for fly tying like circle hooks.
