Fished the Nueces Canyon and caught this very old "Bull Rio"! She has seen her better days. It will not be long until she will be swimming in that great clear river in the sky above. I had a great feeling knowing that I got probably her only fight and for sure her last fight. The fish was 11.15" in length. As I watched her swim away in the crystal clear water of the West Nueces River,if she only knew that she would be the Catch&Release Record Rio for the West Nueces River. Paper work was sent to the Texas Parks And Wildlife. I had seen a bunch of "Super Nice" Rios swimming in schools. The Rio bite was slow but I did manage to catch a few all in the trophy range. Catching one very old "Bull Rio" in the Nueces Canyon. It just don't get any better. fish

Thanks gander,psalty,RWCAT,and Will for the replies. cheers Plenty of active fish right now. I just pray that we can avoid any major flooding on this pending storm out in the Gulf. If the storm hits our area and major flooding occurs this will wipe out a good portion of the fall bite. We can always use the rain but the flooding is another story! nuts

Thanks Andrew,Littlefeather,and Capt.Mac for the replies. cheers Andrew: Yes Sir if only that fish could talk. She has been through a lot over the years. I am sure she has added plenty of Rios over the years in the West Nueces River! Spring fed pool with plenty of thick weed beds in Southwest Texas is a nice place for a Rio to live. thumb
