No fishing today, but did get some fishing things done. Picked up some AIr Lock Strike Indicators that included extra nuts. Even though the Air Locks were the larger size, they fit the smaller size Air Lock which is a good thing as I have one that needed the nut! Good to go now... ready for another round on the Blue River.

Picked the Air Locks at Scheels in the Colony. Also, bought GRHEN and Rainbow Warrior Fishing Flies.. great prices 1.19 I think!

Did mention the TPWD's Trout Stocking Schedule is posted. And, as in the past... posted a chronological version on our website - StockerTroutFishing.com ...do check it out!

Also, tied more fishing flies using Jig Head Flies I ordered on eBay... much cheaper price.  Used them for Rubber Legged Near Deere, Mega Worms, and Mop Flies.

Do check back... hope to be back online later tomorrow with an update on the Blue River and yours truly's attempt to catch dinner!

Blue River Oklahoma Fishing | Two Trout This Round

Fished the Blue River in Oklahoma this past Sunday for a chance at trout for dinner. Fishing was tough for yours truly. Managed a Longear Perch, and two Rainbow Trout.

Used the 6wt TFO Fly Rod and caught the Perch on a Pink Near Deere with Rubber Legs, one Trout on a White Megaworm, and the other Trout on a Tandem Rigged White Megaworm with trailing PMC Emerger.

Was hoping for a limit of trout to cook blackened fish style using a recipe from  @30milesOut.  Ended up adding two Catfish to the two Trout to make dinner... tasty, tasty.

Do check out the video, and do note the clear water and trout moving about below and above the low water crossing!

Quick update from this morning's run to Denison Dam. Limited out on small stripers. Plan was to fish with the Switch Rod and Clouser Minnows for Striped Bass on the Texas side.  Change of plans, fished the Oklahoma side and had fun catching them using a float and fly aka float and jig rig... tipped with shad for bait! Cool thing was the stripers were chasing and striking the Bennet's Lunch pattern after the shad came off, that is the stripers ate it.  Do stay tuned; will get a full video out!

Denison Dam Fishing | Eight Lessons Learned fishing the OK Wall?
Fished Denison Dam on the Oklahoma side - specifically, the Oklahoma Wall for Striped Bass. Fun time catching them on a beefed up version of the Bubble Fly Rig - a heavy casting float and a clouser style minnow.

Plan was to fish the Texas side with the Switch Rod. Had to adjust to the fish and the pattern. No fly fishing from the OK Wall. Luckily, had a back up bait casting rod and Dave's Ski Tackle was nearby for picking up a heavy casting float and jigs!

Do checkout the video!

Bethany Lakes Pre-Stocking Scouting Quick Trip | COAF Field Team's Live Broadcast


Bethany Lakes in Allen gets its trout stocking Wednesday, December 9! In preparation, decided to stop by Bethany Lakes and scout the area... as well as provide more info on Bethany Lakes and the pond that will be stocked with trout in less than two weeks from now!

Also, been tinkering with the microphone to use for livestream updates. Audio while onsite and in spotty coverage has been a hit or miss issue. Sometimes it's okay, other times it's not okay. I think I figured out a workable solution.

Gave it a try while onsite at Bethany today!

May be of of interest to some planning to fish the stocked ponds this season! Here is the link to the playlist - Texas Rainbow Trout Pond Fishing - Video Playlist, and below is the first video in the series.

Simple Fly Tying Pattern | Pat's Rubber Leg Variant

Been trying to tie the Pat's Rubber Leg by watching others tie the pattern. So far, has been a rough go. But, did make some adjustments to one variant that has an extended body, and then used a tying method to attach the legs that is easier for yours truly... same method I use to tie legs on a Foam Spider/Grasshopper.

Do check back... plan to "test" it out at a local pond, and then tie more if it produces a fish or two.  And then, hopefully... on to the Blue River and/or local stocked trout!

More to come!

Here is an impromptu livestream updates from the Team. In this instance, we step through how we use Texas Parks and Wildlife's Trout Stocking Schedule, our "Fun with Spreadsheets" version of the schedule, and Google Maps to learn about a location that we may not have fished before.

Do reach out, if able... can host another session to step through how I would use this method for a location that they suggest. Leave a comment in the video with suggestions.
