Winter trout help

Hey 2coolers: I do not have a boat and I fish the surfside and Christmas Bay Area with no luck. I was thinking I need to get to deeper water so I was wondering if the area between the surfside jetties and the coast guard station would be a good place to wade. Deep water in the channel would trout come up to the shallower bank. Anyone with advice would be great. Thanks.

Don't feel too discouraged, I have a small vessel and have fished ALL over West bay reef and Christmas bay with little to no luck as well. I'm tuned into this question though because I'm trying to find deeper channels to fish.

Have you had or do you have access to any East bay wading entries? I hear the water in East bay has deeper parts than West bay but this could have been someone pushing me out and away from their location.

Where did you walk out at Christmas bay? I know the North East by Cold Pass has some deeper channels.

It's hardly wintery at 70 degrees the last few days....freshwater run off and big tidal swings affecting feeding patterns right now.

Firstly get troutsupport.com.

I agree with SGREM... with as much fresh water that's coming down and has been coming down the rivers it's really got that area messed up. Water temps have been in the 50's a good bit and in the 60's the rest of the time on warming periods. I fished Matagorda on Monday and all our fish were belly deep to 5'. I'll try to get a report up tonight with some pics. We drifted shell in 5' and caught a limit and waded shell and mud belly deep. Wasn't easy day.. but ended up crushing it. We had to hunt for them tho.

Even under ideal conditions, winter fishing can be a grind. Numbers are not a thing I have ever thought of, or attained, when fishing in the months from December to March. All day with a few hits has not been uncommon for me.

I'd be very careful wading along the Freeport Channel. Definitely wear a PFD, but you can't really walk out that far that you might as well cast from the shoreline, but to parrot the above, I wouldn't waste my time there right now. I'd sooner fish the outside of those jetties. Not sure what your species of choice are, but the jetties hold several varieties nearly year 'round.
