Arroyo Colorado

September 21, 2010

Hello Arroyo Partners:

The Rio Grande has received quite a bit of rainfall over the last two weeks.  First, Hurricane Hermine barreled through and now the watershed is receiving the tropical moisture from Hurricane Karl that slammed into Mexico a few days ago.  All of this rain has resulted in flooding in low lying areas of the Rio Grande Valley, again, and there is more rain in the forecast.  I hope everyone stays safe and dry.

I want to remind everyone that the ACWP will be holding all of their Work Group meetings in October.

If you have any topics or suggestions to include on the Agendas for the upcoming workgroup meetings please call or send me an e-mail.

Please mark your calendars for the upcoming events:

Despite all of the rain, Fall is one of my favorite times of the year.  September kicks off with white wing season.  I had some friends and relatives over at my house to open the season.  There were lots a white wing flying and we managed to get 4-5 bag limits.  Another reason that I enjoy the Fall so much is because the redfish in the bay start to "school up" and begin feeding voraciously in preparation for their migration out of the Lower Laguna Madre and in to the Gulf of Mexico.   I was able to get in some time on the water between all of the storms.  We tangled with some real monster "bull reds".

Looking ahead,
Jaime J Flores
