The weekend is here and a quick glance at the current temperatures shows a chilly 45 degrees Fahrenheit. No solid plans for fishing yet as the Team has non-fishing things to take care of before wetting a line can happen. No worries though as we will have a fly rod ready to go if the chance to fish does come up!
We do note the Trout Fishing Derby at Oklahoma’s Blue River starts today. Hope to see a few Bruisers show on the Leader Board. Each year the Trout Stocking gets a supplemental stocking of some nice size Rainbow Trout to make things interesting!
Also, reports from the Texas Fishing Forum show the bite is on at Beaver Bend – see TFF’s TarponFly Guide Report. Things may get crowded as there is a festival happening in the area this weekend, so plan accordingly.
For the Team the Blue River and Beavers Bend will have to wait until another weekend. To the fishermen participating in the Trout Derby, the Team wishes you all the best, and we hope you hook one or more of those Bruisers!
Good Luck and Good Fishing from the COAF Field Team!
