Wading at Devilbend

Post by Durham24 » Fri Apr 21, 2023 9:54 pm

Living on the Peninsula, so I'm restarting my freshwater fishing at Devilbend mainly. Planning on wading to fly fish, cab anyone who fishes there tell me what the bottom is like and are there any issues to watch out for wading at Devilbend.

Near the entrance all the way to the bend to the left is like weedy, like really thick weed.
And the otherside is more sand mud flat.

Thanks Sebb. By the 'other side' do you mean the area called Daangean Point, on the eastern shoreline?
I've seen some of the weed beds along the edge near the main fishing platform and they seem extensive and in places look like they'd make wading near impossible. At least without doing a lot of damage to the habitat...

Green is weed, orange is the other side you can walk to.

Thanks, that area is what I thought you were referring to.
