Port O’Connor Fly Fishing
While most anglers immediately associate fly fishing for tarpon with Florida (and for good reason), the truth is that Texas has quietly been offering a quality tarpon fishery for years with South Texas, in particular, even being recently ranked by Sport Fishing Magazine as the “Tenth Best Tarpon Fishery in the World.” Many will argue though that while South Texas has higher concentrations of tarpon throughout the year, the fishery near Port O’Connor offers what is arguably the best tarpon fly fishing opportunity in the state. Positioned directly in line with Texas tarpon migration routes, thousands of tarpon are seen each year as they transition up the coast from Mexico.
