We just finished the warmest winter on record. It’s warm this week. We already have a North Texas spring-like storm brewing for this Friday. It makes you wonder how anyone could be a “climate denier.” It may be time to adjust the modern calendar, not just the clock!
Water temperatures are still pretty cold, but there were a couple of carp spread over a very large area, nibbling on the edges of Lake Ray Roberts yesterday.
We didn’t get any rain since last Wednesday, and the map is starting to creep. It will be interesting to see next week’s map versus last weeks map.
We have had high winds and heat for several days now, and those two things do contribute to lake evaporation. Click here to check Texas Lake Levels. That is a very good website.
That big wheel in the sky keeps on turning … today is the first day of Spring 2017! What lies ahead, and what we left behind are cause for excitement and concern respectively. The warmest winter in record, what more can we say? It leads to a spring full of even higher potential for the fly fishing scene than last season’s blessings. Soggy Bottom Boys? Your time is now.Continue Reading
March 16 Texas Fly Fishing Report and weekly Statewide fishing report by TPWD.
THE ORIGINAL TEXAS FLY FISHING REPORT
This is the first Texas Fly Fishing Report in a long while! I hope you enjoy it and find it useful. I constantly try and tweak the format for your benefit, and this time that includes the weekly TPWD fishing reports at the end credits. They roll like old school end credits, so you fan fast-forward and pause when you see a water body you are interested in fishing this weekend! REMEMBER – standard fishing reports translate easily into your fly fishing plans. And if you don’t know how, just read more articles in Texas Fly Caster.

CELEBRATING 10 Years in 2017!
The Texas Fly Caster motto is EGO EATS BRAIN. And I might add, it's constantly hungry! Texas Fly Caster exists only because of readers demand for showing, not just telling, about how to fly fish in Texas. I publish true stories, whether it's catching the big one, or catching none. You will find occasional fiction that is blatantly introduced as FICTION - at the top of the article. If you have a great story, I would be glad to read it and publish it here - as long as it meets the same standards for the audience's needs.
Readers are welcome to open and free discussion of all topics presented on Texas Fly Caster:
- Everything Fly Fishing
- Fine Beverages
- The Open Road
- Anything Else

I am a professional photographer, writer and fly fishing guide in North Texas, USA. Feel free to click around and read more in depth! I believe you will find the ten years of information here valuable. I know fishermen have a reputation as bald faced liars, but I am a journalist first. Therefore, I cannot tell a lie. The good, bad and ugly - all are covered here where Fly Fishing Culture on the Skids originated.
