January 26 & 27, 2018

Eisenhower State Park, 50 Park Road 20, Denison, TX

The Red River Fly Fishers will be hosting their annual Red River

Rendezvous fly tying Extravaganza on January 26 & 27, 2018 at

Eisenhower State Park on Lake Texoma.

This event is a great way to kick off the year, tie a good inventory

of flies, visit with old friends and make new friends. There is

always a wide range of fly tying experience levels from beginners

to FFI Silver Award tiers. It’s a casual group with no set agenda,

tie as much as you want, practice casting, or take your newest

fly creation out on Lake Texoma, a World class striper fishery.

The fly tying is held in the Recreation hall inside the State park.

It is a nice facility with a full kitchen, heat, and restrooms. The

state park has nice campsites including some full hookups for

RVs. There are also several hotels in Sherman & Denison if you

want to make a weekend of it. We will have a pot luck lunch on

Saturday so bring your favorite dish to share. There has always

been a lot of great food and a bunch of it!

There is no charge to attend this outing. Let the park staff know

you are a participant and there will be no entry fee into the park.

The schedule for the weekend looks like this:

• 3pm Friday, January 26, 2018, the doors open.

• 6pm Friday, RRFF will be hosting their famous chili dog

dinner with all the trimmings, no charge.

• 8pm Friday, wrap up for the day.

• 7am Saturday, doors open, tie, cast, fish, hang out, and eat!

• 12pm Saturday, Pot luck lunch, bring your favorite dish and

share a meal.

Guadalupe Bass Contest

Guadalupe Bass Contest

Texas Parks and Wildlife released 15 retired Guadalupe Bass broodstock back into the South Llano River on October 17, 2017. The broodstock were used to successfully restore the genetically hybridized South Llano population. To celebrate this and other recent conservation successes for our state fish, Llano River Watershed Alliance is partnering with TPWD and Bass Pro Shops on a prize giveaway in which prizes will be presented to anglers who catch these Guadalupe Bass and return a tag. Eligible Guadalupe Bass will have registered TPWD Floy Tags. If you catch one of these fish, please clip (DO NOT PULL) the tag and take a photo with the fish.

PRIZES Include fly rod and reel combos, fly fishing vests, landing nets, and fly assortments donated by Bass Pro Shops.

 Contest will run from 10/20/2017 to 12/31/18. The first 15 anglers to contact Llano River Watershed Alliance with clipped, registered tags will receive a prize. To be eligible, you must clip the tag from the fish, record the capture location, and please take a photo with or of your fish!

Representatives of both organizations will join us at Oktoberfisch.  So….. come visit
