Myself and good fishing buddy Steve ventured to the Sabinal Valley and fished several areas of the Sabinal River. Fish were very active including Bluegill, Redear, Hybrid Sunfish, Bass,and Channel Cat's. We caught a bunch! Most of the sunnies were in the 7 to 8 inch range with a few going in the 9 inch range. The bass were in the 1 to 6 pound range and the Channel Cat's in the 2 to 4 pound range. Steve caught a bass that was easily over 21 inches and in the six pound range. The fish was released. Steve also caught a very nice Channel Catfish with a certified weight of 4.65 lbs. The fish was 21.50" in length. Paper work was completed and sent to the Texas Parks&Wildlife for the Sabinal River Channel Catfish Record. The old record was only 1.26 Lbs with a length of 15". All fish were caught using worms. The Channel Cat's were caught on Night Crawlers and Chicken Liver. Most fish were released but a few were kept for Steve's dinner table. Catching some super nice fish in the Sabinal Valley. It just don't get any better! fish

Thanks Steve for the reply! cheers I usually make the Sabinal Valley a one day trip and do not have to spend the night. The drive from my house is a little less than two hours. When I fish the Nueces Canyon I usually spend the night either at the Fort Hotel in Bracketteville or at a hotel in Uvalde! thumb

Hope I'm not being too intrusive. Were you banking it or in a bassbuster type boat? Where do you guys put in? looks like a park area in that pic with the big bass. I've accessed a few overpasses off 187 from below utopia to vanderpool but that area doesn't look familiar to me. Nice fish and congrats on the record. I've seen plenty of cats over 10lbs while snorkeling that river so know there lots of nice fish in there.

Yeah, thats some of the prettiest river in the country IMHO. I try to get back there at least once a season. Very productive for my type of fishing as well.

Congrats on the good trip, Chuck and to your record Steve! cheers


Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and all that is within me,
bless His Holy Name!
