Cool Calcasieu River 6/26 AM

Took to the River at the crack of dawn and had an interesting day. We had some luck catching a few good fish but they were far apart and we really had to work for them. Our best 5 would have been 9 lbs + or -. No real pattern as we caught some on top some on bottom and some in the middle. Some Shallow and some deaper. We did however catch a Nice red and a trout in west fork! All in all we had 10 or so bass. It got too hot around 2 pm so we called it a day. I have a cool video of the red being caught but I cant figure out how to get it from my I phone to this site. If anyone knows let me know.

I haven't been but I hear it is really low. I like Streeters when the water is in the grass and stumps. The whole system is really low. We need some rain to flush it and raise the water.

How's the Mermentau river looking between mermentau and lake arthur? 10-12" visibility? Getting those green streaks yet?
BTW, nice report and trip.

Thanks,
Ronnie

Low like everything else. I wouldn't give it 10-12 more like 6-8. Fishable though. Very little if any current. Need rain!

I can handle that. When it gets around 18", it's pretty, but i find the fish get more skittish. I might try to make a trip after i get my prop shaft fixed!!
Thanks for the info Rather B,

Ronnie

If I can get my prop shaft fixed and don't go to toledo bend I'll make a trip to the river and sure will give a report.
If you hear of anything, let me know please.

Thanks,
Ronnie
