Fished a friend of mines ranch which has a part of the Sabinal River flowing through it. It took me two days before I finally found a hole containing Rios. The bite was good and I caught some nice Rios using worms and ultra light tackle. Fish were located in shallow water 2 to 3 feet deep next to large rocks and grass beds. The water was clear and the river was in good condition with springs flowing. That part of the river could use a super nice soaking and hopefully soon. The biggest Rio was 9.50" in length with a fat girth of 9.50". The certified weight of the fish was 1.03 Lbs. This fish will be the first Rio records for the Sabinal River in both the weight record class and the catch&release record class. Paper work was sent to the Texas Parks&Wildlife for their review. Rounding out the catch were some nice Redear,Bluegill,and a few small bass. All fish were healthy,fat,and full of fight. Fish were all released. I also heard lots of quail and turkey calling. Spending time in the great outdoors of Texas. It just don't get any better. fish

Thanks Willie for the reply. cheers Rivers here in South Texas are a lot smaller than a lot of other rivers. They have a lot of "Blue Holes" in their beds that hold water year around. There are also a lot of good holes along the river bed that hold water year around depending on the springs. That part of the river really opens up about a half mile up river. A lot of walking but well worth it. Also the overcast conditions that day made the weather very pleasant. thumb

Thanks Will for the reply! partyon I always try to bring a little of the outdoors to everyone who reads my post! Nothing beats being out in the outdoors hearing nothing but the wind blowing and quail and turkey talking! Time seems to stand still for awhile! Simply can't get enough of being out there in God's Country! thumb
