Possum Kingdom Tailrace

Good day fishing below Possum Kingdom lake. The Brazos River gets stocked with trout during the winter months about every two weeks. The water had been running 1000 cfs due to releases from the dam as a result of the winter storm a week ago. The flow finally dropped to 330 cfs and it's fishable once again. I used my Nissin Royal Stage 400 6:4 with 4 meters of 3.5 level line, 4 ft of 6X tippet and a bead head sakasa kebari I tied the other day.

I know that fish!

I enjoyed fishing there too a couple of years ago. I had just got my tenkara rod and tried it out down there. How far down did you go? I liked the bend area about a mile or so down river.

I was just outside of the restricted zone. I had planned on going further downstream but since I was catching fish I decided to stay put.
