After the success of last years NTKBF event on the Brazos River. It only made sense to do another one this year! This event will be structured in a similar way to last years event. You must start at the Whitney Dam and take out at Dicks Outpost adjacent to the 2114 bridge. This year Backwoods is allowing people to paddle past the 2114 bridge and fish given that they paddle there from the official put in at the dam.

Like the PFD tournament on the Trinity there will be a fly fishing division and a conventional division. Tournament entry will cost $30 with a $10 big bass side pot. Big Bass will not be separated between the two divisions. There will be a 100% payout divided 60%/30%/10% in the two divisions. HAWG TROUGH will be the only measuring device allowed. If park regulations allow they will be for sale prior to the tournament but please plan ahead.

The tournament time table will be as follows:

4:30 a.m. to 5:00 a.m. check in. (Whitney Dam Launch Area)
5:00 a.m. captain's meeting.
5:15 a.m. launch and first cast
3:30 p.m. score cards in at Dick's Outpost at 2114 bridge
Award ceremony and location TBA

THIS TOURNAMENT WILL BE INTERESTING. As many of you know, Lake Whitney in that last month has been as high as 23 feet OVER POOL. Lake officials have been releasing water daily in massive amounts. The river has not been fishable from a kayak in weeks. Since they started releasing, the water levels have gone down about 16 feet on Lake Whitney. After phone conversations with the BRA, if consistent rains don't persist, water release will be back to normal for the event. Anglers will come in contact with what is likely to be a whole new river. New pools, flats, laydowns, and eddys should make for very exciting fishing as nobody will have a true advantage.

Prior to all the rain both fly anglers and conventional anglers were reporting very high catch rates with some very big fish mixed in! Backwoods does have a kayak trailer that will be used to transport anglers and boats from Dick's Outpost back to the put-in. We will however accept as much help as we can in that regard.

If you're interested in coming along please let us know on the Facebook link attached below:

Further information on rules for the tournament will be posted on the Facebook event page! Come out and enjoy a laid back tournament on one of the most scenic waterways in Texas!

Good luck on the smallmouth I have not caught on down there in 6-7 years. But you and I know that thing is loaded with Bass I hope they got into some bigger ones downstream. Hey Jerry do you know what time they turn the water on today?

The fishing was great. Unfortunately, I did not have the honor of meeting up with any big bass.
That was not a problem as I did meet up with some magnum sandbass, a 22 inch striper, lots of nice crappie, lots of bluegills (including one that topped 10 inches), and a ton of undersized bass up to 11.5 inches.
I'm guesstimating that I had close to a 200 fish day. One of my best days on the river in a long time.
