Hello Fall!

Sunday, September 23, 2012

How great has the weather in Austin been lately? Cool mornings followed by mild afternoons, this has been one of the nicer September's in the last few years. Add to that the replenishing rains we had a week or so ago and there are a lot of great reasons to get outside and enjoy the natural side of our great city. 

I was able to do just that for a couple hours this weekend. Penny and I went over to the section of Bull Creek just west of 360 between Lakewood and Spicewood, we were excited to find river levels looking pretty good. I brought the five wt along and switched off stripping wooly boogers through the deeper holes and working poppers along the bank. 
                                                             Beautiful Colors!

There were a number of one to two pound bass exploring the revitalized creek and I spent most of my time chasing them. Plenty of sunfish were eager to take as well though which always makes for a fun time. A little size 10 frog color popper was the most effective pattern on the day. Strikes generally came shortly after landing the bug on the water, or within one or two strips.

Hopefully this beautiful weather continues and everyone is able to get outdoors and enjoy it in some way. Here's to the start of fall!!!
