Monday Morning Mushy Sidewalk

texas fly fishing #flyfishing in texas weather conditions

Just when we thought it was safe to fly fish the new dustbowl, we get epic rains that float all boats!

Welcome to the Monday Morning Sidewalk. The ground is shifting, like a bowl full of jelly beneath our feet. Not only are lakes bulging with new supplies of rain, it still ain’t over ‘til it’s over. And it ain’t over. Be safe on your journeys to and from wherever you go this week.

North Texas lakes are actually showing plus numbers and I have no choice but to go and look today – to see exactly what we have to look forward to after the rains stop and the water recedes. It’s hard to be optimistic, based on years of weed growth, but there comes a time when the water’s so deep in the weeds … we actually have a shot at this thing.

Houston was almost clear and dry when we left there yesterday, and as we headed back to the Dallas area, a wall of clouds appeared out west … and they stayed, and they did damage, and they are still here today. Correct me if I’m wrong, but even this spring doesn’t qualify as “normal” compared to what was once normal?

There’s movement on many fronts related to the direction of the Texas Fly Caster experience. Against my average judgement, I am about to launch another site –, and see if there is as much interest there as there is here. As that journey continues, one can’t help but learn things, and want to share those things learned about fly fishing on skiffs here in Texas. If you thought fly fishing was complicated … boats are a whole other story. Just wait and see …

Stay tuned, and be sure to check the YouTube channel and Instagram for the latest fly fishing fodder.

A reminder: I am not “Texas Fly Caster.” You, the readers, are the Texas Fly Casters, and I certainly appreciate your participation with information and all those great and newsworthy photographs coming in these spring days. Thanks for reading and thanks for participating.
