They also seem a little better behaved than usual while they're here... along the coast, they'll swoop down and grab pieces of bread from your hand, here, they tend to stay as far away from you as possible.
I mentioned a couple of posts ago that the Trinity river isn't the most attractive of rivers. I took this pic in one of my favorite spots to pull over when I'm waiting in Ft. Worth... During the summer it's overgrown with weeds and full of birds and bugs and other fascinating things... this time of year, you can clearly see how the summer and autumn storms chew up the banks... and the primary reason that most don't find it particularly attractive...
By the way, the water isn't blue, that's a reflection of the sky. Not a lot of fishing in the Trinity. Since the Alligators are no longer here, it's overrun with turtles, primarily red ear sliders but there are soft shell and snappers also. They've thinned a huge amount of the fish out.
Just a quick post really, I've got a whole list of things to do, so I better get moving on.
