I haven’t been able to get out as much as I would like due to a heavy work schedule but when I do the fishing has been off to a great start. I’ve spent a few days camping on the Colorado River as well as hitting up some of my usual spots on the Guadalupe river. The Guadalupe has been slowing down due to the influx of recreational tubers and paddlers and the Colorado has been the best for quality fish so far this year. A lot of that will begin to change since both rivers are starting to show signs from the drought here in Texas that we are going through. One of the fun things that I did recently was fish a Kayak only tournament put on by River Bassin. It was the first time to be held in Texas and I had my plan in place. From the put in to the takeout would be a 10 mile paddle with no other exit points so I would have to fish pretty fast to cover this distance and get off the water in time to drive an hour to the weigh in. I was greeted with a drop of three feet in the river and no flow with a southwest wind steady straight in my face. The water conditions messed up the plan but I was still able to manage a limit to place sixth in the tournament. Not bad for the conditions. I thought that I would share some of the photos:
