We decided to go to the Angelina today. Gorgeous day. When we put in at Bevilport, we were hoping that the dam was releasing water. It wasn't. We have fished this river before and the difference between good and bad fishing has always been the presence of current. We tried several areas and found a (very) few small fish here and there. My Wife did catch a really nice #4.5 LMB on a lipless crank bait near the dam. We threw and threw without much to show for it.
The highlight of the day was seeing two otters. They were on the west side of the river, then swam to the east side, ending up at a steep clay/sand bank. We trolled over close and watched them for about 10 minutes. My Wife got some pictures but the sun just wasn't right.
