FISH FLASH – Creeks Flooded and On Fire!

texas fly fishing spring Hot Spot

NOTE – YouTube is having problems right now, so the video could well change by end of day today. Stay tuned!

I have had a few reports of feeder creeks producing great sand bass and crappie action in creeks leading to Lake Grapevine and Lewisville Lake, Texas. It’s a muddy go, and not too high on the “50 Places to Fly Fish…” list, but there are a lot of folks, and even guides who certainly have huge followings they take down into the bottoms around here. To each their own, I guess.

Speaking of guides, I am glad to guide you to the fish – like those in this video – if you have a half-day on your hands! There will certainly be crowds that could impact the locations – especially on weekends, but this fly fishing outing is one where the early birds get the worms. NOTE – We won’t have to be crawling down into slippery ditches, or creeks and you only have to wear waders if you’re interested in making a fashion statement. Backcasts are WIDE OPEN.

You may recognize the location. This is the second park at the Dam parks of the Trinity Greenbelt below Lake Ray Roberts – along the Trinity River. It’s just below the pedestrian bridge. The fish are taking Clousers in black (when cloudy) and red/white (when it’s sunny). The retrieve is slow and you have to find them in the current. It’s a super slow retrieve for the masses of crappie that are there, and a bit faster for the sand bass and hybrids. Think in terms of eight-pound fluorocarbon tippet. The hybrids will test all that, and this is the same area I caught a ten-pound hybrid a few years ago, so you’ve been warned. I caught two on Tuesday, and they went from four to five pounds. A few sand bass pushed that two-pound weight class.
