Fishing and Hunting Southeast Texas By Capt. Bill Watkins

It has only been two or maybe three weeks ago that the Sabine River finally dropped down into the river channel and the water that has covered  the bottoms for most of this year began draining out. The woods were still very wet and my two  low land stands were still not accessible. There was  no way to get in there without a great effort so I waited for the mud to dry. Well, the mud dried!  The high pressure system that has set up over Texas has sucked the water out  of the ground in a dramatic way. This Wednesday  I decided that I could make it in so at dawn I set off into the woods  on my Polaris Ranger. When I turned off of the main gravel road the  first big mud hole in the road was not a mud hole  any longer.

Speck fishing good, if you know where to find them

The tide rose and the tide receded but the current was goining toward the Gulf of Mexico for twenty-four hours a day. The water level would rise at the time of high tide but the current just kept going south only slightly slower. I have not witnessed this very many times in my life. It is a phenomenon that occurs in Sabine Lake when both the Neches and Sabine Rivers are rolling at flood stage. This situation presents anglers with some of the toughest inshore fishing they will ever experience at Sabine Lake.

Always follow fishing etiquette

The old man in the small flat bottom aluminum boat came from somewhere across and down the ship channel from Sabine Pass. He didn’t slow the fifteen hp. motor down much until he was very near our position. At the very last he idled down and coasted to a stop within a short cast from where we were and heaved his anchor over the side.

Today’s flood could effect fall hunting

I drove down county road 4095 in Newton County and at the first curve in the road there were six cars and trucks parked all along the edge of the roadway. I had seen this many times in my lifetime. The several families that live on the higher sand ridges a mile and one half down the road had to evacuate their vehicles in case the projected crest of the Sabine River was higher than expected. The river was supposed to reach 35.28 feet that afternoon and some of the homes would have water touching the floor if it went to 36 feet.
