Thinking of heading to Conroe in the morning and since I'm new I've gotta ask - will all the rain in the last couple of days make for a good or bad day fishing? We've had several inches here and I'm curious what that'll do to the bite.

Can't answer for Conroe (though I am very interested in your results).

I was worried about the rains, as you are, so I headed to Fayette county lake twice this last week. It doesn't seem to have any inflow from any major creeks. I did well (for me ) with 9 one day and 11 another. Nothing very big.

I'd much prefer to go to Conroe as it would save me a lot of time.

Please post your results, assuming you went.

I headed to West Galveston bay today and did very poorly in an all-day rain. richg

I may go out this afternoon and planning on working the bulkheads and piers north and east of 1097. I need to run the boat but sure do wish the sun would come out.

I was there the other day and did very good bass fishing. What are you going after?

Went out this morning and was not expecting the wind to be like it was. Tried the north end and the jungle across from Cagle before deciding the wind was just too much. Moved over to a protected cove and struck out both places. I had to come home earlier than I'd hoped to to take care of some honey do's. No sooner than I was leaving the marina the sun came out and the wind died off considerably. Just my luck. Next time I'll be able to go won't be for another couple of weeks and hopefully my luck will change. About ready to drop the bass fishing and start crappie catching.
I'm starting to wonder if I'm going too early. Maybe late afternoon or early evening would be better?

Man, had a similar experience. We launched and drove about 10 MPH across cove. Boat rocked so much, we decided to just leave in less than 20 minutes. Could not find a peaceful inlet.

I used to catch lots of fish on Conroe using the drainage culvert pattern. Find the drains and you find the fish.

I finally got out Tuesday around 9:30 after fog lifted and headed south of 1097 and fished around the paddleboat and docks at Sunset Resort and got two one pounders on blue G-tail worms. Moved down around the south side of the condos and hooked one but lost it.

Moved down to the big inlet east of the dam just to look around. Not familiar with the area but looks promising.

There are a few near it. First one is at the Shell station on 1097 right before the small bridge on Lewis Creek cove. I believe there is a $10 launch fee. At the end of FM830 there is a public ramp with no fee that puts you in Lewis Creek cove just north of the light house at Seven Coves. Across the 1097 bridge on the West side there is another public ramp at Scotts Ridge. ( this puts you in above 1097 in Caney Creek ) I think this one may also have a fee, but not sure. There are ramps on the East & West side of the 1097 bridge, but both may be private.

The Shell station is pretty safe, but has limited parking area. Scotts Ridge is kind of isolated with no security and I've heard stories of trucks being broken into. The 830 ramp is in a pretty open area with a lot of traffic since it's basically a loop at the end of FM830, but I have not heard about any issues. There is a private marina on the right just before you get to the 830 ramp and I believe you can launch there for a fee. It's secure and probably one of the safest places to park. If you are talking more about boating hazards the Scotts Ridge ramp is good, but it puts you right into Caney creek which is full of trees and stumps. If you follow the contour of the south bank coming out of Caney Creek to the main lake it's the safest route in and out. The rest of the ramps are pretty much in open clear areas so no boating hazards.

My wife and I went out Sunday evening for a couple of hours and although she got skunked, I netted five including two very nice 3.5 pounders. We were using G-tails and fishing in 5-7 feet of water. The only reason we quit was because it was getting dark and she wanted to get back to the lakehouse. Wish I could have gone out this morning, too, but I had a list of honey-do's to get done.
Just wish she had caught some, too. Not really... banana
