    Thanks for the welcome!! I live in Sachse, TX. NE of Dallas. I am about 10 minutes from Lake Lavon and Lake Ray Hubbard. I've been in Texas for about 9.5 years and have fished only FW. I used ot have a Fish/Ski boat, but time and cost forced me to sell it. I grew up on the Left Coast and have fished for trout in WA, CA and CO. Lots of SW fishing in CA. Halibut, Rockfish, Sea Bass, Shark, Whitefish, etc.... I miss the SW and want to fish the Gulf.
    I just bought two SOT Kayaks for myself and my wife. I met Randy through TKF and that's how I found this forum.
    I haven't fished a lot here in Texas, even though we had the Fish/Ski boat. I used to flyfish a lot in WA and CO, so I think flyfishing for Bass and Crappie would be a blast in FW and anything that will take a fly in SW.
    I hope to meet a bunch of you in the future.

    God Bless,

    I ahve done many Flyfishing trips in central texas for bass in the hill country streams. The guadalupe bass has even been nicknamed the Texas trout. The bass do act a lot like trout on those streams. It's good to have you on the board. Have you fished the trinty outside dallas. It was a feature article in TPWD magazine. It looked really good. Welcome to fishing tx. The brazos river around waco has some world class flyfishing for giant smallmouths and largemouths

    Thanks All,
    Scott - I have only fished in three lakes here in Texas so far..... Lewisville, Lavon, and Ray Hubbard. No flyfishing as of yet. In fact, I haven't cast a fly in probably 20 years..... So I need to relearn casting and then from a kayak as well. Thanks for the info. Gives me something to shoot for....

    Bob... for fly fishing, you'll need to go hit the Brazos down by Glen Rose and up on the Blue River and Lower Mountain Fork River in Oklahoma.... I also highly recommend this book:

    Fly Fisher's Guide to Texas; by Phil Shook [2001]

    It will give you all the information (& more!) of all the lakes and rivers throughout our fine country (ummm... I mean "state"!!).
