    The dunes are awesome, but are better fishing when the largemouth are topwater oriented. I expect this time of year you'll be doing alot more sightseeing in that area than catching fish. But like others stated, you find an in or outflow you might find trout.

    Good stuff, Tyler! You get that on fly or gear? I've had fairly good luck finding those on my spinning gear, but not as much on the fly.

    Getting really antsy for warmwater fishing season...

    I fished Hutchison either last year or the year before and caught (and released) a turtle.

    So this is about a week away for us. How would I find out if the water is high enough to explore back in the islands or not?
