Carl Young Park in Abilene…! #flyfishing

By / May 7, 2017 / Fishing

Was on the road Saturday. Travel was unrelated to fishing but was able to wet a line! Did some fly fishing with the little 2wt CGR Fiberglass Rod from Cabelas! Handy little rod that is easy to pack while traveling.

Remembered Carl Young Park was listed in Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s Trout Stocking Schedule while passing through Abilene. Although it was too hot for trout, decided to check out the Park.

Water was murky; did see Shad moving about as well a lots of turtles and several water snakes. Even better, did not strike out… caught a little Bluegill! Had several others strike but the fishing fly was way too big for the scrappy fish.
