Default My Trip to Falcon

I owed my nephew a fishing trip and we normally head over to Calcasuie, but the fishing for me has been off this year and while the red bite is pretty good the trout bite has been tough. My high school friend Matt Reed has been offering to take my fishing at Falcon for a while and I decided to take him up on it. Glad we did, and while the wind blew up to 30mph, the bite was on. We caught 1 over 9, 5 over 8, 5 over 7, 6 over 6 and too many 3-5lbs to count.

So Matt is a former BASS angler and current FLW angler that guides on Falcon. He fishes like Rembrandt paints. I told my wife, you remember when you were little and you traced over the dotted letters with a crayon, well that’s what I was doing, while Matt was doing calligraphy on the front of the boat. He put us on fish and explained to us how to catch them, we had an awesome trip.

I think he said 34’, we couldn’t use the ramp, we had to just back off in the lake.

Glad Falcon is getting back to what it used to be. I've had a couple of 40# 5 fish sacks on that lake, including my personal best of 11#.

Me too. Texas Parks and Wildlife released 350,000 bass at Lake Amistad while I was there July 4th week. They were at Rough Canyon, and I was told they had just released another 150,000 at Diablo East. The fingerlings are taken in smaller groups to different parts of the lake and released.
