It's days like today where it is raining outside and has you locked inside. I tried to fish today but sometimes the river wins. Went out to actually enjoy the rain since showers have been few and far between this year with the severe drought we have been in. I'm no fool though, with the amount of rain that happened in the Hill Country, it was only a matter of time before the surge of water made it down to where I was fishing cutting my day short. Days like this get you dreaming of places you have never been and fish that are waiting there for you to catch. These days I always have a fly rod and gear in the truck because you never know when you will find one of those places as you travel across the many different highways and country roads throughout the state. Atleast if the chance arises I will be somewhat prepared.
With fall approaching and the days getting shorter it will only mean less chance to get a line wet so try and take advantage of any chance you get. This has always been my favorite time of year to fish with the first hint of cooler weather it tends to run all of the other people out of the river and I get to have a lot of places to myself. Nothing better than you, the water, and the fish.
Enjoy your time on the water and if possible pick up some of the trash that others have left behind.
See you on the water,
