Another quick update to our Rockport Fishing Report for the middle of March. It’s Spring Break week here on the coast, which means the weather is going to suck. Always seems to work out that way. But here is what we are seeing out there.

After a very nice weekend last weekend, where we had all of our boats on the water, we have had a few days off here this week. In fact, we’ve canceled everything from Monday through this coming Sunday already. The weather is complete crap. Cooler, strong North winds, rain, lightning and who know what else. But the really bad stuff doesn’t start until Friday. Then we will have overnight lows in the low 40’s and all that crap. Not exactly beach weather for all these Spring Breakers. Bummer.

The fishing over the weekend was outstanding. We’ve gotten some water back and the fish have moved further back into flats that had been dry the weeks prior. So things were looking good. Now we will wait and see what happens after these cold fronts. There is a likelyhood that some of that water gets blown right back out of the bays. But time will tell.


For now, we are taking it easy and bolstering up our fly selection in the old fly box. It’s a good week to tie flies, play golf or do pretty much anything other than be in a flats boat. There was even the idea floated that all our Fly Fish Rockport guides may be bowling a day. Eek!

Unfortunately the weather dictates what we do. And it’s just not going to work out this week at all. So we will sit and wait, in hopes that things improve early next week.

So let us know if you would like to get out on the water. We can make it happen next week, or beyond. And of course we are always prepared for those last second trips as well.

We are filming a series of new tying videos coming to our Youtube channel. So if there are specific flies you would like to see or want instructions on, let us know. There will be redfish patterns, as well as patterns for some upcoming trips we have to The Keys, Cuba and beyond.

If you are looking to get out on the water, you can always contact us any time if you would like to BOOK A TRIP or need any up to the minute Southwest Texas fly fishing or Rockport fishing report type news. We continue to post on  Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and other such stuff. Or perhaps SUBSCRIBE to our YouTube Channel as well. We continually are trying to add more videos and stuff there. We try to keep stuff fresh for those of you that are wishing you were on the flats with us. So be sure to follow us on all our social media stuff.
