Any one fished Conroe lately? Gonna be on it Saturday morning. Haven’t fished it in over a year so just wondering. I’m aware of the 10 foot wake boat swells by the way. I’ll be off before that

It’s a grind like everywhere else.

Points and docks.

Hit up some rip rap early with a squarebill then do what JBranham said

Any day you can catch a limit is a great day. August is probably in the top 3 tough months to fish on Conroe. It’s a grind. A hot grind. Fish are suspended with the thermocline. They will mostly be above 12 ft. Little telling where they will be one day to the next.

Are these routes still safe to run? Dropping in at the 830 ramp, heading to the south end to pick up a friend at their house, then plan to start in at the back of the Stowaway creek.

I know about the big sand bar in front of Stowaway marina. Just wondering if these routes I marked are still clear today as I'll be running them early morning

I think I can safely say that today was my last rodeo at that clown show

I say that every time I go! But it is a quicker trip then going to Rayburn.

I avoid it on the weekends, clown show is a nice way of saying what you really mean!

It’s definitely a recreational lake first, fishing 3rd or 4th… Total pain in the [censored] to fish right now though and pretty much has been since Covid began.

Just about the time you’re ready to write it off it produces some of the bigger fish you may ever catch.

Man that's no joke. Seems like since covid everybody and their dog has gotten a boat and is a Conroe.

I’ll say, this morning was super nice. Dropped in at the 830 ramp at about 6am, super calm and beautiful. Ran up into the back of the creek that Stowaway is on, back up in Lake Paula. Didn’t do much to speak of

Wanted some “A/C” so decided to run down to April Plaza to crank some docks. I left that cove at about 9:30 to come out and see about 19,000 wake boats throwing 10ft swells all over the lake. Insanity. And the fishing was slow to fair to top it all off

I know Conroe has always been like this. I think today just topped it all off for me to not return

Oh yeah, and how could I forget? Went to go load up. Waited in line for 15 mins because of pure stupidity (see pics.)

Dude in the new Silverado was burning tires for 5 mins trying to get out and just couldn’t comprehend that you don’t floor it to get your rig up the ramp

And the dude in the red SUV is when I decided to trailer up to Cagle and drop in there. Before my very eyes he drops his boat in, then literally just pulls his rig straight ahead and parks in the area you back up in.

First mistake was 830 Boat Ramp. The only thing you should do there is get a lawn chair and a beverage of choice and enjoy the show! Go to the parks to put in. I don’t know where you are coming from but if it’s north then just put in at Cagle. It is a hidden gem. You have to know how to run the lake but it is well worth the $5.00 to stay away from the “clown show.”

I did put in at Cagle in the evening time. Didn’t get a bite up that way. It was significantly more quiet however

For the south end, if you think I’m paying someone $20 for permission to back my rig down a concrete slab, you’re high. I’ll deal with the yahoos for that much!

Now, if the marina launches/loads the boat for me and provides some breakfast tacos, THEN I’ll give them $20

Stow-A-Way ($10) or Cagle ($5) but it’s just best to be off the water by noon, different lake, or golf on TV in the AC.

That is exactly what I’m saying. I will not pay $20 at all either. There are some a bit cheaper than putting in off 105 but if it’s cheaper then when it’s time to come off the lake you will once again be in under the big top…
