Rockport Fishing Report – May 22nd

A little behind on the Rockport Fishing Report here for the week. So we apologize for that. Been busy around here with lots of boats on the water though. So here we are with your up to the minute report from the flats in Texas. Things continue to be pretty ok around here, fishing wise. Still not great. Some days not even good. But not terrible either. We are just working hard for the fish we are seeing and catching out there still. Some days it comes together pretty well. Others, not so much. Just gotta keep picking away at them. The weather remains a pretty big pain in

Rockport Fishing Report – May 13th

Here is your Rockport Fishing Report for the second week of May. Things have been a bit interesting around here since our last report. Lot's of weather, which has been making things a bit challenging for us some days. Maybe a bit more of the same for this weeks report as well. Fishing around the flats these days has been... ok. Not good. Not great. And not terrible either. But a solid OK seems to be a pretty fair assessment. We are seeing and catching fish every day. But it hasn't been easy out there lately. It has had its moments, where the skies part and fish are plentiful.

Rockport Fishing Report – May 2nd

Here is the first Rockport Fishing Report for the month of May. April was a crazy busy month around here and seemed to fly by. The weather was good, fishing was good and things just seemed to cruise along. Now May is here and hopefully there is more of the same to come. So far, May has announced itself with some authority. The past few days have been pretty rough around here. Winds each of the last three days have topped out above 25 mph. Throw in some clouds, some rain, some thunder and even a bit of lightening, and it's been pretty darn entertaining out on the flats

Rockport Fishing Report – April 16th

Week number two of April is in the books. So we are updating our Rockport Fishing Report. Here is a little recap of what we have seen the past few days on the Texas flats, and what we expect for the coming week. Spring fishing is here in full force. So this is a much improved Rockport fishing report, over weeks past. So it is finally starting to look like Spring out there... for the most part. The past few days have really turned on, fishing wise. Not that it was bad before really. But the past few days have been pretty darn good out there. Certainly there a

Rockport Fishing Report – April 10th

Here is your second Rockport fishing report for the month of April. It's finally feeling like Spring around here. April has not disappointed, for those out here on the Texas flats. The weather has improved. The fishing is improving. And all things are looking up for the month of April. The past week or so has been pretty good around the Texas Coast. Our weather is finally acting a bit more normal. Daytime temps are in the 80 degree zone, which is about right. Winds have been pretty manageable, for the most part. Maybe even a bit better than average for this time of year? But not too bad,

Rockport Fly Fishing Report – April 2nd

Welcome to your first Rockport fishing report for the month of April. March ended on a little bit of a high note... for the most part. Hopefully April will finally warm up a bit more for us and kick the Spring fishing into high gear. But for now, this Rockport fishing report will cover what we've seen in the past week and what we expect for the coming days. Since our last report, things had begun to warm up a fair bit. Sunnier skies, warmer temps and reasonable winds had been common place as we were closing out the month of March. With the improvement in weather, we did

Texas Fly Fishing & Brew Festival

Some of the crew here from Fly Fish Rockport made the trek up to Plano, Texas again last weekend for the Texas Fly Fishing & Brew Festival. Now in its third year, this has quickly become one of the larger events for the Texas fly fishing community. And certainly it is the largest for the Dallas/Fort Worth area. So Capt. Jeff and Capt. Gibson packed up, grabbed a shiny new Towee Calusa, and headed up to Plano. This event is a two-day show combining all things fly fishing, with a number of micro breweries. Visitors are able to sample a variety of craft beers, while checking out all the

Texas Flats Fishing Report – March 23rd

Time for an updated Texas flats fishing report. We are wrapping up the second, and lighter, week of Spring Break around here. Still a busy week, but still much more mellow than last week. But tomorrow will bring that to a close, and things will return to normal down along the Texas Coast. So here is a recap of what we've been seeing this week, and what we hope to see out there next week as well. Our week started out with a bit more of the same. Cloudy, a little wind, blah blah blah. Not terrible, but still not feeling like Spring in South Texas really. We were

Texas Coast Fly Fishing Report – March 18th

Here is your Texas Coast fly fishing report for Rockport, Texas and the waters surrounding. Week one of Spring Break is in the books, and all was pretty mellow. The upcoming week is another Spring Break week, but far more calm typically. So not much to worry about there. But we will fill you in on what we saw this week, and what we expect for the coming week as well. We are still really struggling to find our Spring weather down here on the Southwest Texas Coast. This past week was another one filled with cloudy weather, showers and wind. Just as the past weekend approached, a full
