We spent 2 weeks touring east Tx lakes and had a blast! You have so many great FF lakes, and the regs are great. We each caught PB; my partner had a new PB 2 casts in a row. 5 lb and up bass blowing up on schooled shad; crease flies and 2 inch faux fur streamers were almost a fish a cast (well maybe 3 casts). We had some great days, and got blown out or rained out several times. We could almost always find a sheltered cove on a nearby lake if it was windy. CA lakes are almost all canyon lakes and deep water; Tx flats and weed beds held tons of big fish. Athens,Timpson, Nacogdoches, Tawakoni, Gilmer, Fork; LOP; we saw or caught great fish at all these. We never drove more than an hour except Timpson and Nacogdoches. My partner almost had a slam on Tawakoni; wiper, white bass, LMB and striper. Lost the striper to broken 16 ? lb tippet. I'm planning next year's trip for late April/May to hopefuly get better water temps.

welcome it sounds like you had a great trip. Texas has an amazing fish diversity. If you get a chance, try the coast sometime. There are some really hard pullers down there. Congratulations again. thumb

Great trip indeed thumb

My favorite part of Texas is fly fishing the crystal clear waters of the Texas Hill Country.
