Fishing below the Denison Dam is showing some improvement. Not Great but good. Stripers are showing some energy as they are chasing the shad. I am hoping that this is an indication of additional oxygen in the water. The best times for fly fishing seem to be just as the water is turned on and just as it is being turned off. Current schedule for generation is 1:00pm - 5:00pm daily. These fish were caught today just as the water came on. All were caught on a solid white clouser. I caught and released 8 fish. All were about the same size as the fish in the photos. I am guessing 3-5 lbs.

Hopefully the lake will turn over completely soon and we will be back to normal patterns. Fishing is improving!!!!

Community Lakes

Nice Bass from the local ponds!

 

 

ckcrew: Re: Community Lakes

Well, I had a much better weekend than fisherman13 had. Saturday after watching the UFC card at a friend's house in carrollton, I decided check out a pond around the corner from his house(at midnight). It was a good night! Ended up catching 10 bass.

2 lbs, 6 ozs

Then caught this fatty around 1:
4 Lbs, 5 ozs

This one had a ewg hook stuck in his gullet. It looked like he broke off very recently. I tried to do some surgery and remove the hook but I was unsuccessful. So I let him go with the hook still in his gullet.

I prob lost another 3-4 nice fish due to some error on my part. I've been fishing with a fluorcarbon leader and it feels very different versus tying directly to braid. I'm still trying to get the feel of it.

Denison Dam

 

Bummer on the dead Stripers…

texoma1231: Re: Denison Dam

I fished below the Denison Dam yesterday afternoon. The only generation was for 30 min from 4:30pm to 5pm with one generator. I arrived about 3:45pm and did see one fish caught from the OK side on a top water plug but the fish was small. I did managed to catch one small striper after the generation started. Caught on a swim bait from the Texas side. I did see a few small fish caught on the Texas side during generation but nothing big. All were around 1-2 lbs. I did not see any fish caught from the OK side during generation.

I have included a photo of the south wall of the flood gates on the OK side. If you look closely you will see a lot of white spots at the base of the south wall. Those are large stripers that are dead or dying. The photo was taken from the parking lot on the Texas side. The oxygen level is very low and the water temp in the lake is 84 and the survival rate of the big fish is poor. I did see some smaller stripers chasing shad during the generation so there are still some to be caught.

Lake Somerville

Somerville report looks good!

 

J-Moe: Re: Lake Somerville

Most of the summer Ben and I have been fishing in the slower moving water on the sides of the chute. It has continued to be less and less productive so I decided to challenge the 2200 cfs flow with the fly rod again. Finally, after 2 years I figured out how to be successful. Sunday morning was incredible fishing. I waited until 8 AM for a break in the rain. I caught 15 keeper white bass before 9 AM. It started pouring so I took a break for about 45 minutes. They started reducing the flow at about 8:30. When I started fishing again at 9:45 the bite was insane. I was catching white bass on every cast for a while. As they continued to reduce the flow the fishing slowed down as well. I finally quit about 11:30. I ended up catching around 30 keeper white bass and another 5 to 10 dinks for the day. I kept a handful for a friend.

Most of the fish were caught on a white clouser.

They actually closed the gates all the way down yesterday. I tried in the evening but there was nothing but gar and buffalo roaming around. They have since increased the flow to 1048 cfs. The lake level has risen back up to 245.5 or 7.5 feet above normal.

FW: Watched Forum: Fly Fishing : Re: First Trip to the Brazos below Whitney

More reports on the Brazos!

Golfer Jeff: Re: First Trip to the Brazos below Whitney

Robert is a striper/hybrid hunter. Generation is good for those fish. Canoeing or yakking downstream for black bass and sunnies is different. You can get ahead of the Generation and stay there all day down to Dick's.

Both of the guys above know what they are talking about. If you want stripers and white bass, stay home. If you want black bass and sunfish (with maybe a carp or cat thrown in), come on down.

Or just sit tight and come to Colorado with me
