Loc: Universal City Tx.
Fished the Sabinal River today from 9am till 1pm and the bite was good. Caught about 40 nice Bluegill all in the 7 to 8 inch range and all of em were healthy,fat,and full of fight. Rounding out the catch were a couple of bass in the 1 to 2 pound range along with a couple of Redbreast in the 8 inch range. While I was fishing several showers had came through dropping about an quarter of an inch of rain. The bite continued good and I left em biting. All fish were caught using worms. Both bottom and float techniques were used and all fish were released to fight again. The water was stained in some parts and clear in other areas. There was good current and the river is in excellent condition. After a catching some nice Bluegills I had a FANTASTIC lunch of meat enchiladas with rice and beans along with a tall class of sweet tea at the Lost Maples Cafe in down town Utopia. Catching some super Gills at the start of the Texas Hill Country. It just don't get any better. fish

Thanks "Gar1970" for the reply. cheers I met a guy while I was fishing who said the same thing. He caught six last week before the storms. He said the smallest was about five pounds and the largest was about nine pounds. Might have been the same person. The guy I was talking to was heavy set with a beard. hmmm I have seen Channels in the Sabinal that would easily go over ten pounds. I have also seen some very nice bass. coolio

Hey Banker, how did all this hill country rain affect Travis? Any of its watershed benefit from the deluges? Sure hope so!

Rudy. Travis just like Lake Medina went up a lot. clap Lake Medina was at 3 percent full prior to all of this latest rain. It is now over 40 percent full at last time I heard. dance2 Travis I think went up over 20 feet. breakdance All of the creeks and ponds that I drove by on my up to the Sabinal had water in em. The ponds were completely full. coolio
