today, Mr. Hernandez from Boerne Champion HS added 33 rainbows form his aquatic science class to the river. https://imgur.com/MIyk3kk.jpg https://imgur.com/Vfg5Ute.jpg His sons joined us - I think he was expecting some students, but you know how HS kids can be, especially this late in the year. http...

Long Photo Essay - Today's Trout in Classroom Results

Our TIC program in Texas has grown to 20 classrooms. Since January, these classrooms have been raising rainbow trout from eggs in refrigerated aquariums. Today all the schools from Houston and Katy, along with Brandeis HS in SA brought their trout fry to the river. I know there were some jealous GRT...

Re: We need Rain !

that's a great link - a lot better than Intellicast daily precip, which I've always used for planning hill country fishing trips (esp white bass)
now Jimbo's going to be sitting with his calculator every day

Re: White Bass

Texas kayak fisherman and corpusfishing are reporting them on both sides of Lake Corpus Christi.
A few staging fish are being caught above Canyon in deeper water.
This rain could kick a good run.

Re: Whitlock/Vibert Box Program

I remember both events a little differently. Mick's great snapshot of me on the first (cold) morning of filming On The Rise - we got a dry snow that morning, and the wind was blowing 20 kts. First day I was fishing my prewar Heddon 2f cane - my wind rod, a 6wt. https://imgur.com/DAvqWG8.jpg and anot...

Re: Whitlock/Vibert Box Program

I honestly haven't been fishing for praise, but have been receiving it here and e-mails for the past few days - it is appreciated. The fun thing about this post (Education Chair), is it overlaps so many functions within GRTU - Fisheries, Education, Conservation - and Perfectly fits our defined purpo...

Re: Whitlock/Vibert Box Program

Jimbo, made me go back and do the math - turns out my guess yesterday was right. I remember helping Karen set up her first tank at Hoffman Lane Elementary school. As she expanded the program to other schools, Round Rock, Roosevelt HS, Larry Hill was one of her full-time helpers. What I remember for ...

Re: Whitlock/Vibert Box Program

Just learned from our New Braunfels TIC teacher, her father, Hylmar Karbach passed last evening. Kate went to the trouble this morning to route me to her team teacher. Hylmar was a force in early GRTU. Fond memories. And Hylmar is certainly vested in the future. ps - just accepted the Fed-Ex deliver...

Re: Whitlock/Vibert Box Program

7 years ago, I helped Jimbo with planting eggs, but 18 schools in the program this year, we'll be blowing and going to get eggs to classrooms. Lloyd will need a crew to help with the gravel and planting egg boxes. Here's a few eggs beginning to hatch after a week in the classroom. https://imgur.com/...

Re: We need Rain !

cut that out - you wouldn't believe the rain I drove through coming back from Cedar Park last weekend.
I finally broke down and went bike riding in the rain the other day.
Hope everybody got out yesterday, it was sure pretty.
Cold but nice weekend coming, and I'm heading to the Bryan tournament.

Re: What's In Your Fly Box for Guadalupe River Trout?

With the proviso that I rarely fish dries on the Guad, I think that you should think more about fly type than specific pattern. Any fly type can be tied to match a specific bug, but different fly types have different characteristics, strengths, and weaknesses. Having said that, my own preference is...

Re: What's In Your Fly Box for Guadalupe River Trout?

if you're fishing your wet fly as an attractor, with a smaller dropper, it may be working, anyway. If the attractor turns the fish, and the fish takes the dropper, both flies have done their job. A technique to have in your back pocket is skittering a crazy big dry fly - sofa pillow, hex pattern. Th...
