UPPER GUADALUPE RIVER
Leave the crowds behind and experience some of the most beautiful scenery in The Texas Hill Country! The Guadalupe begins at its headwaters in western Kerr County. The spring fed North and South Forks of The Guadalupe meet and form The Guadalupe River proper west of the town of Kerrville. It runs uninterrupted largely through open ranch land for miles until it is dammed to create Canyon Lake. The river begins again below Canyon Lake Dam as The Lower Guadalupe where we fish for Trout, Stripers and other species. While the Lower Guadalupe is very beautiful in its own right, The Upper Guadalupe takes the cake. Its gorgeous Bald Cypress lined banks and Limestone cliffs are a sight to behold. We float stretches near the towns of Boerne, Comfort, Spring Branch and rarely see other any other people or signs of development. River levels fluctuate on this freestone stream based on rainfall or lack thereof so trip availability depends on current conditions. Primary target species are Guadalupe and Largemouth Bass in the Spring, Summer and Fall. Its tree lined banks provide a shady canopy that makes even the hottest Summer days enjoyable on the river. Topwater poppers thrown tight to the bank are often rewarded with explosive strikes from Bass. Baitfish and Crawfish streamers produce great action on The Upper Guadalupe as well. It is also a great Carp fishery and one of my favorite places to target them on the fly. Catfish, plenty of Sunfish and Rio Grande Cichilds are also present. In the late Winter and Spring, the confluence of The Guadalupe and Canyon Lake is home to one of the best White Bass runs in the state. Striped Bass are also occasionally caught during the run. Come experience this gem of a river for yourself!
