May 31st Fishing Outing at Cotile Lake

Fellow Casters, mark your calendar down for May 31, 2014 for some area fishing.  We've reserved the screened pavilion #1 at Cotile Recreation Center for our post-fishing activities.  Or come by early and talk and tie flies. We'll meet up at 12 noon for "show and tell" photos of the morning's catch, along with BBQ hamburgers, hot dogs, sausage, grilled corn and refreshments.  Bring a dessert to share.

Fishing opportunities in the Cotile area abound!  There's bank fishing at Cotile, and at nearby (10 minutes) Kincaid Lake recreation areas, pier fishing at Valentine (yes, you can fly fish off a pier), kayak fishing only at Valentine, kayak and boat fishing at Cotile and Kincaid.  Lake Rodemacher is also an option if the water clarity improves by then. We'll have a map to show access and launch areas.

This outing could be the pre-cursor to an annual freshwater tournament, similiar to the New Orleans Fly Fishers Rio Grande Rodeo.
