Got to fish two of my three days off this week. Fished Wednesday and Friday. On Wednesday myself and good friend Jeff took the kayaks to Lake Travis. Beautiful lake. We fished from 8am till 3pm and caught a bunch of nice Bluegill in the 8 to 10 inch range. Fish were located in coves 12 to 16 feet of water. Fish were close to docks and stacked on ledges. Jeff was using live worms and I was using a small crank bait, Chartreuse/Black in color. Caught over 50 and kept some for the dinner table. On Friday I took the fly rod to Cypress Creek in Hays County. I fished some property that a friend of mine was working at and he got permission from the owner for me to fish. I fished from 9am till 2pm. The creek is in good condition. Water is crystal clear with nice grass beds and some deep pockets. Fish were hitting a top water Orange/Red Lady Bug Popper from 9am till about 10:30am. I then had to switch to sinking flies. Brown Grasshopper and a Yellow Craw fish got the best results. Fish were found in 3 to 6 feet of water holding by grass beds. Caught a nice variety of Bluegill,Longear,and Redbreast. A couple of small bass rounded out the catch.
Side Note: A friend of mine who lives on Mcqueeney stated that the boat traffic was heavy today on both Dunlap and Mcqueeney. Looks like the summer wake and ski boaters are here.
