Another quick update to our Rockport Fishing Report for early April here. The weather improved quicker than expected, so we were able to get a bunch of boats out this weekend. So here is what we were seeing out there the past couple of days, and looking forward to this week.
At the time of our last report, things were pretty grim. We were looking at a pretty nasty cold front with heavy winds, rain and temps as low as the upper 40’s. While we did get a pretty solid punch from the weather, it really wasn’t as bad as anticipated. And it ended up blowing through by Friday night, allowing us to get boats out on the water all weekend.
Reports from both Saturday and Sunday were pretty darn good. Saturday was a bit on the cloudy side. But the fish were fired up. Tails, large school and bank crashers were seen by all of our boats on the water that day. Made the clouds much less of an issue for sure. Today (Sunday), we were blessed with light winds and sunny skies all day long. So it too fished pretty darn well.
Flies were a mixed bag between the boats. One was on the shrimpy side of things and did well. A couple others were on the crabbier end of the spectrum and also boated plenty of fish. There were a few picky fish out there, but certainly not the norm. So we wouldn’t stress too much on the fly selection necessarily. If the fish stay happy out there, you wouldn’t expect them to be too picky, so long as it’s presented correctly. But if you are curious about some flies, you can always check out a few of our favorite flies here.
Looking forward at the coming week, the weather looks really really good. We have warmer temps, light winds and plenty of sun on the docket for the entire week. Apparently it is going to be Spring again. Perfect!
We will have a bunch of boats out all this week. So we will keep our socials up to date with images and stuff. And very likely another updated Rockport Fishing Report towards the end of the week.
