Double "R" Guide Service Falcon Lake Fishing Report
Today's trip did not produce a a double digit as I was hoping that we would, but were able to put a good number of fish in the boat throughout the day. The fish have starting moving away from the trees and have turned their tastes from jigs to crankbaits and other plastics. These fish are still around the trees, but they are not in them as they have been. So, you can get by with fan casting the trees looking for these fish.
Falcon Lake has had some strange weather this year as like some of the other communities throughout Texas. Going from one day where it's cold and windy to the next when it's short sleeve weather, sunny, and at times (most of the time) still windy. Now when I say windy, I mean windy, I'm talking 20 - 25 with gust. So, it's pretty common to have to fish windy days if your planning on coming to Zapata for some good ole' Falcon fishing.
Falcon is continuing to drop on a daily basis and is about 25' low. The fish are more concentrated now in areas, so anytime you pull up to an area, fish it thoroughly and remember to present them with a variety of baits before leaving.
Here is a picture from this trip--as today was a "numbers" day -- with this size of fish being caught consistently.
