Devils River Update

After almost one year and four meetings of the 'Devils River Working Group', the Final Report of Recommendations was issued today to the TPWD Commissioners in Austin. As a member of the DRWG, representing paddlers and anglers, I am confident that things will change for the better with respect to mak...

Re: Devils River Update (long post)

Jim, you are right. I hope we will be able to change things on the DR so that it can be enjoyed and fished, responsibly. I am cautiously hopeful this will come to pass within a couple years. BTW, a large black bear was spotted on TNC land at Dolan Falls last week... and to think we were only concern...

Re: Devils River Update (long post)

I went on a Devils River kayak run over 4 nights and five days at end of October. Went with a couple of TPWD officials and we explored potential camp sites along the way as well as getting in some good fishing for a couple days or so. Here are a few of the LMBs I caught altho quite a few smaller SMB...

Re: Devils River Update (long post)

Thanks Jimbo. But it isn't as hard as actually paddling the DR at the low level down there now. But there is more water on DR now than some places on the Guad.

Re: Devils River Update (long post)

Dale,

Deirdre Hisler is now the lead facilitator for DRWG. However, I suggest Jeannie Munoz as your initial contact: <jeannie.munoz@tpwd.state.tx.us>. Jeannie is very knowledgeable about every aspect of the DR project and TPWD.

Re: Proposed Closing of Devils River

I am pleased with how the first DRWG meeting in Austin on Feb 3 turned out. Everybody, landowners included, understands that the DR must be managed or further deterioration of the resource will certainly ensue. A river permit system with controls was discussed in a general way. There will be legisla...

Re: Proposed Closing of Devils River

Yes, keeping both DRR and DRSNA does seem too good to be true, but it is. However, the devils is in the details (PI). :lol: Recently, I accepted an appointment by TPWD Commissioner to a seat on the Devils River Working Group DRWG, along with other paddlers and Kevin Stubbs, Hill Country guide and ow...

Just returned from 5 days on the Buffalo. It was really high water most of the time so I only got to paddle 2 out of 5 days. We hiked the Ozarks on the days we couldn't paddle. The water was murky at best when I was on the water, so the fly rod didn't get much action. Last year about this time I had...
