Galveston, Matagorda, Surfside, Freeport ........ Saltwater Fly Fishing
I've been fishing the bays and marshes from West Galveston Bay to Port O'Connor for over 40 years. My passion is sight fishing for redfish, sheepshead, and speckled trout on the flats with fly and light tackle. Saltwater fly fishing in the bays of the upper coast has improved over the years, with more grass flats and sight fishing opportunity. There is very little shrimping and commercial fishing in these bays today, habitat improvement and fish numbers may well be results of these changes. From my home base in Lake Jackson, which is 50 miles south of Houston on Hwy 288, we either fish east in the Christmas/Bastrop bay complex near Freeport and Surfside, or the Chocolate/West Galveston bay waters along Galveston Island. Often we head west to fish East and West Matogorda bays, all this depends on conditions and fish.
I provide all the high quality fishing tackle, but bring your own if you like. If you want, I can help with casting instruction, lure presentation, knot tying, and everything you need to know to be successful in the future. My goal obviously is for you to catch fish, but at the same time learn some things and have a great time on the water.
Make sure you bring some
good polarized glasses; copper color seems to give the best contrast in
our bays. I can provide non prescription polarized glasses if you donít
have them; I carry several types, some that fit over prescription
glasses. Wear a good hat and comfortable light colored shoes. Be
prepared to enjoy a day of being up close and personal with the wide
variety of wildlife the Galveston/Matagorda area has to offer.
