Hit the local Creeks to see how the recent rain helped em. Fished from 7am till 11:00 a.m. Started at the Leon Creek and fishing was good. Caught 10 in one hour. Caught several nice Warmouth over 8 inches and fat. Also caught a few Gills in the 6 and 7 inch range and some Greens in the 7 inch range. The Creek has improved a lot and the rain has filled in a lot of dry places. Water was stained and muddy. All fish were caught on the float using Berkley Power Worms-Trout Size. Fish were caught in 2 to 4 feet of water. I then headed to the Salado Creek and the fishing there was Super!. Caught several nice Gills in the 7 to 8 inch range. Also caught a bunch of Greens in the 7 inch range,two Redbreast in the 8 inch range,a small Channel Cat, and several small Rios along with several nice Longears. The creek has improved a lot from the rain and the water was moving over a low crossing. Current flow was good. The water was muddy in some spots due to the recent rain and clear in other spots. Fish were caught on Berkley Power Worms-Trout size. Fish were caught on the float in 2 to 5 feet of water. All fish were released to fight again. On a side note: The creek banks are very slippery and muddy so be careful out there.

Nice report! What do you mean by "on the float"? Floating underneath a cork or cast weightless and floated with the current?
Thanks,
bug-e

Under a cork! I have also had good results free floating the bait as well. That would depend on the type of water body and conditions. Usually this time of year fishing off of the bottom and on the float are the two basic methods that yield very good results.

coolphotos Nice Report and thanks for the updates on the creek conditions. I take it that you were over by Kelly on the Leon and as for the Salado were you off of Rittiman?

The Leon Creek was over by Kelly and the Salado was just off of Rittiman. Both creek conditions have improved a lot after this rain. We can still use some more!

Great update BAF!! Those creeks can get really turned on after a good rain. I may try to hit Cibolo on my way home today.

Looking at those pics though...we need to hook up some time. Those little boats I build are perfect for the creeks and ponds around here. We can throw them in the back of my truck and do some creek hopping/paddling to get to those areas that are unaccessable by land.

That would be a great adventure fishing those creeks on one of your boats! Would love to do it. I will PM you my number and maybe we can plan a trip in the future. PM sent.

A little over an inch in San Antonio and about an inch and a half on the Northeast Side of San Antonio. Could not have come at a better time. We still need more.

It’s kinda like a pirogue/kayak boat. I did not design them. I just built them for the fishing we have around the SA area. But they should work pretty much anywhere.

Since they are home built they may not seem like a boat most of us are use to. But they are as versatile as any boat I have ever used. 8’ in length, 32” wide and as stable as a much larger boat. The white one holds over 300 lbs. and the red one holds about 250 lbs. (though I put 320 lbs. in the red one) neither one will sink with the cockpit flooded.

Each one drafts about 4” and weighs less than 50 lbs.

Easy to build and cost less than a $100.00 to complete.





Pre paint…light but strong!





They can move in tight places.



And just a blast to use and play with!





And easy to transport with a weekend load of fishing stuff!!!

Those are REALLY REALLY cool. What kinda material are they made from. I'm looking from a phone so not the most detailed pictures. I am going to search your other thread now. Those look awesome.
