Friday Fly Fishing Report – Where it All Comes From

| July 7, 2017

I bet you wonder where all this information comes from.


When it comes to assembling the (sometimes weekly!) Texas Fly Fishing Reports, I glean information, that isn’t FIRST HAND, from a few specific resources. These resources are NOT fly fishing based, and I typically don’t report on common knowledge that is found on forums because it can be so hyperbolic that the real value is very low – to hardcore fly fishers. What I simply try to do is assemble real information together in a format that hits the highs and ignores the rest.


First – Texas Fishing Reports provided by TPWD. You can have e-mail alerts sent to your phone as soon as they hit the TPWD site.

Second – Fox Sports Southwest on Fox Sports Outdoors on my cable TV (which is soon to be disconnected), early Saturday morning.

Third – Texas Insider Fishing Report, again on Fox Sports SW.

HINT – You can watch Fox Sports SW on your computer. Texas Insider is at

THIS WEEK – Consider Sam Rayburn for bass. If you know that lake, it is rising near the top of the National List for bass lakes. The heat is going to start taking a toll on all our freshwater pursuits now.

SALT – Rollover Pass on the BP sounds to be the place up north, and Port O is shaping up mid-Texas Gulf Coast. Apparently, smacks are still up for grabs on the Port Aransas jetties as well. Down south? It’s South Padre Island time! Sure the land cut (inside bay side) is still going on solid, and fish are a bit deeper heading into the cuts and channel, but South Padre seems to have the best opportunities for FLY FISHING on salt right now.
