I wasn't working, but there are tons of sunfish around the pier at Isle Du Bois Park on Lake Ray Roberts. It was a fun time, and surprising to see a big bass lurking around the pier as well! I went there with the intention of seeing if I could catch some of those little guys, and bending my little TFO glass rod (which I really like), and the only advice I can give is change flies often! These fish are experts at reading the menu, and adjusting their order.

It's a good day when you can get out early, the clouds break, and you can show out-of-town friends to fish on their skiffs. Conway Bowman on the bow of the East Cape on Lake Ray Roberts this morning. Pretty cool.

They're still there. Scattered, and more sensitive these days, but an eat nevertheless.

NORTH TEXAS - Nights are still a bit cold, and that makes water warming more gradual. There's plenty of water in lakes in the northern part of the TPWD Prairies & Lakes central Region, and I bet the Piny Woods Region has a fair share of water too. This fresh rainwater does help warming some. Whether or not the USACE decides to pre-release more water in front of spring rains? We won't know until it happens. And we all know those releases trigger some fun action at the dam releases. Those releases lead to a lot of confusion for lake fish though - as their habitat disappears overnight. When new water is up (>100% conservation pool) in the budding vegetation, it is a BEST CASE SCENARIO.

SO, we are caught in the taint right now; taint time to get serious about my specialty - shallow lake carp, but taint time to hibernate either! Days are getting longer, and nights are getting warmer.

God laughs at fishing predictions too, but the last two years have been the best of the last ten, and I don't see any reason for this year NOT TO FINISH in the TOP THREE of the last ten years.

This season I will be donating $50-dollars of every booking of my guide services to the Hurricane Harvey relief effort, and if you want to support that area of Texas, feel free to contact me, and I will recommend a few guides that could use your support (talk about a win-win deal!). The infrastructure in that area is coming back, and many guides have taken the extra measure of securing comfortable lodging for their paying guests. You can hit me at texasflycaster@gmail.com or call 940-380-0408.

Another one of those so called "slick productions." Feel free to call if you want more information. Send me fish pix if you have the time, and we will run those on the video (watch for details).

For my reporting, a successful report includes not just my report, but other guides as well. And last week (Comes out Fridays) the report had participation from Houston and the Texas Gulf Coast. It was a real help, and I hope these guys will send in their reports regularly in the future. Their information about the fly fishing conditions is in the video. I would hope some would book trips with these guides, as would help them and the local economy. Why not keep it local this year?

These rains the last few days have brought a huge influx of water to Ray Roberts, and it reminds me of those spring flood events. I doubt they will open the dam very much, as there's just too much water already downstream. So forget about those runs of sand bass and hybrids brought on by those dam flows. The flooded flats are full of greenery and plenty of carp - not at spring levels, but a lot. There are also bass feeding in the flats on drowning grasshoppers. The hoppers are everywhere looking to find a high spot. If you do go out, watch out for those floating balls of fire ants!
