On the Saturday before our annual Memorial Day weekend trip to the Brazos River J-Moe and I loaded up the yaks and hit the road. It is a two hour drive or more from home to the river below Lake Whitney dam. On the road by 5AM puts us well down river by 8AM looking for fish. The fishing was great but the catching started slow and ended with a bang..
J-Moe got his fly rod record sunfish he was after and I hooked up with two very big river bass and a "on the fly" trophy sized long-nose gar. It takes a good bit of extra effort but the rewards are well worth the sore muscles and sunbaked hide. This trip solidified the Brazos river as one of the richest fisheries in the whole state of Texas.
