It's starting to feel like Fall with the latest cool front dropping water levels and taking the temperatures down to a brisk 60 degrees this morning. With weather fronts moving water around it's helpful to remember the themes that play out day to day. Falling and rising water patterns can present themselves in the same day. This is because water is pushed from one side of the bays to the other, falling in upper bays, and rising on the barrier islands.
We'll zero in on which offers the most reward for our guests as we get into Fall. As water levels retreat, bays and back lakes become much shallower offering the fish less places to hide and concentrating them to a point. Redfish will fall into deeper guts, bayous, and back lakes during periods of cooler temperatures with Trout mirroring these moves over mud and guts. Smaller finfish and bait stocks do the same things and these guts and bayous can be a lethal set up for game fish.
We're in the groove heading for the opening of the Texas Duck Season on 11/1. Of late we've welcomed guests from all over the globe including Australia, Scotland, England, and all over Texas. This waterfowl season, we'll be welcoming guests from all over the US and as far away as New Zealand. We'd like to welcome you to hunt and fish with us this season, come see us when you get a chance.
