I took the kayak and fly rods out to Lake Placid on Friday. I ended up catching a bunch of small bluegill, a couple warmouth, a green sunfish, a few redbreast, a couple crappie, a couple bass, a couple longear and 6 big Rios. I didn't catch near as many redbreast as I did on Dunlap or McQueeney for some reason. Once again, the only fish over half pound were the Rios. All 6 that I caught were over 1/2 pound. The biggest was 9.75 inches.
I caught very few fish on top water flies. The majority of the fish were caught on a popper dropper rig. A Llano bug / crawfish briminator combination. All of the Rios were caught on the crawfish briminator. Crawfish / dark rust colored flies have been the most consistent color for me on the Guadalupe lakes.

There is an R.V. park off of FM 123 in Seguine that has a ramp to launch onto Meadow Lake. I think the cost is either five or ten dollars. You paid at the office and if the office was closed you put your money in the door slot. It has been awhile since I have fished Meadow and things may have changed. I do know that the office has a phone number and is usually open from 10am till 5pm.
Side Note: You Sir are having one "HECK" of a "RECORD" year! Congratulations on three more records and the first fly rod records for Lake Placid.
