FISHING REPORT

The Hot Summer weather has slowed the fishing some but the Colorado River at the Bend is in nice shape as far as water levels go for this time of year thanks to recent rains. As a result people are still catching fish. Barefoot Fishing Camp has been decent with a 34 lb Yellow Cat hauled in on a trot line baited with goldfish. That is the only large cat we have seen in the pass weeks but some smaller good eating size channels,blues and yellows have been landed on nightcrawlers mostly though stink bait, livers and cut bait also has been working. Fishing at the Colorado Bend State Park, Sulpher Springs Camp and Barefoot Fishing Camps should land you some fish as it seems to have improved the past 2 days and might even get better this weekend and next week. If you want to get away, quit wishing and go fishing and if you need something stop by Bad Bobs Bend Store, we got everything you need …..Almost! Thanks for visiting our web-site and hope to see you soon.

FISHING REPORT






Water levels in the Colorado River reflect the seriousness of the drought we are faced with in Central Texas and the river is in need of some heavy rainfall. You can walk across the river in many places it is so low. The birds who eat fish(Heron,Kingfishers & Cranes) are enjoying the easy pickings as they line up on shallow holes of water. The Colorado Bend State Park, Barefoot Fishing Camp and Sulpher Springs Camp report the fish are biting and with less water to hide in the few folks that have braved the heat have done well. The Catfish are active, we’ve seen some nice cats caught on cut bait, liver and night crawlers, for the big Yellows you will need a trot line baited with perch or goldfish. We also have had reports of white bass caught at the state park on jigs(white,grey,blue) SO…..What ya waiting for? Stop wishing and come on out Fishing at the Bend and don’t forget to stop at Bad Bob’s Bend Store….We got Everything you need ….Almost! Hope to be taking your picture soon.

Thanks for your interest,
Bad Bob

OUTDOOR SPORTS REPORT






The month of December was the beginning of what is expected to be an excellent white bass run in the Colorado River and the Bend is the place to be for your fishing fix. At Bad Bob’s Bend Store we have seen quite an assortment of fish being caught including Whites, Strippers, Crappie, Guadalupe Bass, Black Bass, Channel Cats, Yellow Cats some Buffalo and some Gar. The Colorado Bend State Park is the best spot right now but Barefoot Fishing Camp and Sulpher Srings Camp will soon be back open for fishing and are always good spots to catch fish. The bass and crappie have been hitting good on artificial jigs like Roadrunners(chartreuse/white), Rapala Countdowns, Little Fishie’s(grey/charttreuse) and rattletraps. Nightcrawlers have been good for most everything else. Fisherman with small boats have been having good results putting in at the state park and heading out toward the lake. All in all it’s all good for a good time on the river so you need to quit wishing and come fishing and if you need anything at all stop by Bad Bob’s Bend Store in Downtown Bend Texas, We got everything you need..,…ALMOST. Hope to see you soon and thanks for visiting our web-site.
HAPPY NEW YEAR
