I have a couple of Questions about fishing the Paluxy. I have most of the week off and thought about heading out there one day. I have been looking for possible spots using google maps.

Is there parking near the crossing for county road 1001? It looks like there may be a place to pull over and park but im not sure about the land owners near there.

Has anyone fished the river in Glen Rose over near where Grand Ave turns and follows along the river? Is it worth trying?

The old, running joke on the Texas Fly Report (God, I wish I'd bought that site from Alex) was to standardly reply with "there are no fish in the Paluxy".
Historical retorts out of the way, my limited experience with the Paluxy has been that, as a completely wadable river, if you don't like the fishing, simply wade upstream until it gets better.
Of course there are good, bad, and better spots. But keep in mind that it's hard bottomed, good wading. At least it used to be.

Access to the Paluxy is limited. Last weekend I attended the Reel Recovery Retreat in Glenn Rose and went down a day early. I drove to Dinosaur Vally State Park and walked along a hiking trail until I found secluded area of the river to fish and had a blast. Bass and sunfish everywhere. It did cost $7.00 to get in, but there were restrooms,water and relaxing atmosphere to fish in. You can stay in the high dollar hotels on the river and get access to the river too.

I just ended up going to the state park today. I have a state park pass so it cost me nothing. There was some kind of cross country thing going on so I had to dodge runners to find parking. It was relaxing to get out there once I did. I forgot how much the Paluxy reminds me of the hill country. I found a couple of good spots and had what would have been a new personal record bass on a fly. I had it within a couple of feet of the rock ledge I was standing on and it spit the hook. Anyway here are just a couple of pictures from today.
