EIGHTY DEGREES IN FEBRUARY? HIDE AND WATCH!

This is a salt weekend – nothing more, nothing less! We here in North Texas are battling freezing drizzle today, which is good for the trout scene in Oklahoma, not good for working on the Airstream, but take heart! Saturday temperatures are staring right at the big eight zero, and it may stomp on the synthetic action on the Blue River, and it may make the trout action in Beaver’s Bend sketchy, but if you are in range – THINK SALT! This month is shaping up to be unique in my memory of Texas Februarys. Correct me if I’m wrong.

If we don’t get an extended cold snap, of the week-to-ten-day variety, we have to think the sand bass action will be accelerated with the first warm rain. Rivers and creeks could turn on a lot earlier – IF it doesn’t stay cold, doesn’t snow to the point of blizzard in March … if, if if. Just in case things actually get better, I’m going to hole-up and tie a dozen sand bass flies tonight – in special flavors with special hooks (you know the ones!).

The accompanying video is a report on Texas Fly Fishing and can be found without reading all these words on the Texas Fly Caster YouTube Channel. There’s also a small beginner’s tip at the end of this video.
