Todays fishing on river
Sunday morning I had a father and his two kids. Air temp was 48 degrees. Not good. And it was slow as I expected. We had about 16 head in 4 hours.They were troopers tho and with stood the cold and made the best of a hard morning. These fish are begging for sunlight and warm temps. They want to spawn, which may not be a good thing, since we are in early February. If this warming trend continues the river fish will spawn regardless of another hard freeze. Today we had 48 head in 4 hours . Almost all on spinnerbaits except two big girls that we pulled off beds with Texas rigged plastic rage tail craws. Cant ever remember bed fishing in early February. The bite will only get better and more aggressive as each warm day comes and goes. Now is the time to get on the river and see what it can offer. I fish lake Bastrop all the time and this river has more numbers and better quality most of the time.
