Club member Les Jackson kayak fishing at Daingerfield.

As part of our club’s Fly Fishing 101 educational series, we’re doing a special Kayak 101 clinic this Saturday that will incorporate learning skills for fishing from a kayak.

This event takes place 9 a.m. until noon on Saturday, March 18 at the Panther Pavilion boathouse that is operated by Backwoods. It is located on the banks of the Trinity River at 480 North Taylor (see Google Maps link below). The clinic is free and is in lieu of our March outing. Members are encouraged to come and bring friends.

There will be kayaks available for those who don’t own one, and instructors will be on the river bank teaching basic paddling techniques, getting in and out of the kayak. Our club volunteers will also teach basic casting skills for those who need entry-level casting help, as well as folks to teach warm water techniques for sunfish and largemouth bass. If you have your own equipment and waders/boots, please bring them. If you are new to the sport or a beginner, the club has some rods and reels to use during the clinic.

Due to warm weather, the fish have been turning on as of late, with some bass on the beds, so there’s the potential for a good catch by beginners. NOTE: Everyone who plans to fish needs a valid Texas fishing license.

A special thanks to Backwoods for helping the club with this event.
