Brazos River Clean-up Saturday May 26 Below Lake Granbury

The Fort Worth Fly Fishers in cooperation with the Pecan Fly Fishers will cleaning up the Brazos River below Lake Granbury (De Cordova Bend Dam) on Saturday, May 26. We will meet at Pecan Plantation residential area at 8:30 a.m. (specific location TBD). WE NEED CANOES as well as kayaks. If you have a canoe, please think about participating. There will also be plenty of clean-up that will be done on foot, so you will not need a kayak or canoe to participate.

To get to Pecan Plantation, take US 377 south out of Fort Worth toward Granbury. Turn left on FM 167/Fall Creek Highway and follow it 7 to 8 miles through Acton to the front gate of Pecan Plantation.

IMPORTANT: If you plan to attend, we need to get your name on a list for the front gate. When you get to the gate, tell the gate attendant you are attending the Brazos River Clean-up and that you are a guest of Phillip Harris (817-578-4142).

The cool thing about this is that this stretch of river is great for canoes and kayaks. It is loaded with striped bass, white bass, large-mouth bass and bream. This is your opportunity to learn how to access this part of the river below the De Cordova Bend Dam. Clean-up should end about 1 p.m., leaving you time to fish the river in the afternoon.
