Fall 2018

After a hot, dry summer, The Texas Hill Country has received some much needed rainfall over the last several weeks. Too much rain in some areas with devastating flooding on the Llano River near Junction. The San Marcos and Guadalupe Rivers fished well over the Summer but the lack of rain put a damper on the action. Certain stretches of the Guadalupe that normally produce excellent Bass fishing were too low to float in a raft. However, recent rains have rivers flowing and fishing is excellent. Cooler temps have Bass in the mood to eat. Productive patterns include larger Baitfish, Crawfish and topwater bugs. Its a great time of year to target Bass in the Hill Country!

It's been a cold winter but the fishing is on fire!

It has been an awesome winter for fly-fishing in the Texas Hill Country to say the least!  Trout Season is in full swing on the Guadalupe below Canyon Lake with annual winter stockings by Guadalupe River Trout Unlimited and Texas Parks and Wildlife.  For those who may not know much about the Trout fishing in The Guadalupe, TPWD stocks small 6-10in Rainbows (Striper and Bass food) and GRTU stocks the larger fish in the 15-20in+ range. I cannot emphasize the importance of Guadalupe River Trout Unlimited and all the hard work they put in to make the fishery what it is.  I am proud to be a part of such an awesome organization.  GRTU stocks some very large 20in+ fish every year but this year we saw a higher amount of these big fish with average size in 17-18in range and quite a few fish in the 20in+ range.  Its made for an awesome season so far and I want to give a huge thanks to GRTU
