Houston County

Hey all,

I'm going down fishing in houston county tomorrow, just wondering if anybody had been fishing any of the streams down there and could give a general action report (or share any sweet new spots I can check out, hah ;\) )

Maybe wander into a few morels too... hopefully they'll be popping soon

I haven't talked to anyone who's fished HoCo lately, but I'm sure conditions there aren't too different from everywhere else where fishing has varied from day to day. We've had consistent rain so water conditions have been up and down all spring.

Let us know how you do! \:\)

Report from today:

looked for morels with my buddy until 2, then hit the stream. He'd never been trout fishing before - ever - but we did really well. about 30 rainbows and 5 or 6 browns in 3 hours of fishing. Had 2 rainbows landed that were 14 inches, broke off one that went 16 or so. Also caught several chunky white suckers. I was using an UL rod I just built, with 2 lb test. Lots of fun but man sure was tough keeping them outta the snags.

Couldn't believe how much the creek had changed since the flood... huge deep pools where there had been nice slow runs, and super steep gradient in places where there'd been riffles. Seemed to improve the area I fished in any case

    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
    • Yes, I agree with you, but there are some professionals in Queens NY who provides an eco-friendly spray, which is not harmful.
    • I smoked a pork shoulder yesterday that turned out great, but the rack it sat on took a lot of soaking and scrubbing to get clean afterwards. Got any tricks to keep the rack less crusty? Spray it with Pam before the smoke or??
    • I stopped at a small engine shop on my way up north Monday and he confirmed what RebelSS said. I got some yellow tubing and after struggling for almost 1/2 hour, got the lines reconnected and went out and whacked some weeds. Thanks for all the replies.
    • I read somewhere that the chemicals used by Queens NY pest control caused male pattern baldness and birth defects in pet hamsters. 
    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.
