Thanks everyone for the comments.

Our fly club is planning another trip up there on Memorial day. If they don't start generating power and releasing water by then we may put in at Dick's, instead of below the dam.

Interesting that you caught coppernose bluegill, a non native species, in the Brazos river. I'm curious, were all the bluegills caught coppernose?

Any native bluegill?

Thanks.

Yes, they were all coppernose, no native bluegills were caught on this particular trip. I only caught 7 total bluegill on this trip. No redbreast, longear, greenies or redbreast either. It was very different than when they are releasing water.

Did you put in at the hatchery or the bridge? I always surmised that when the fish trucks release the trout, various species get released as well...in fact, I caught a saugeye out of that area once...so odd looking I had to go to the books and figure out what it was...tasted good though!
