Re: Troutfest 2018,

This year's TroutFest was simply the best Flyfishing Expo GRTU has ever put on. I was there for this year's banquet but didn't bring my camera. I was absent from last year's banquet because of one of those last minute runs to the emergency room, but I will tell you the food was an amazing step up fr...

I've fished the Greys and Little Grey's over the years and they are good waters. Like you most people are lured away from the Little Blue Lines to the River's with Famous Names. There is nothing wrong with fishing them. I too have fished some of those waters of the years. But as I got older I wanted...

Re: Whitlock/Vibert Box Program

Ron and I have been fishing together for decades, and not just Trout fishing, but fishing many Hill Country Rivers for Bass and Perch. We've had so many epic days fishing out of the way places an...

Re: Whitlock/Vibert Box Program

Thanks again.....
Now I will be back in about 8 weeks to inspect their progress.
Once the fry have all left the Whitlock/Vibert boxes, I will remove the crates, and leave the river as we found it.

Re: Whitlock/Vibert Box Program

Well today was the day to get these excess Rainbow Trout eggs into their new home on the Guadalupe. Ron McAlpin, who heads up "Trout in the Classroom" was at the Lowe's Store in Sattler to divy up those eggs. http://i229.photobucket.com/albums/ee95/jimboroberts/2016/2017/2018/IMGP5782_zpsakcd9mye.jp...

Whitlock/Vibert Box Program

We will be receiving the Rainbow Trout Eyed Eggs for Trout in the Classroom next week (Jan 25). We usually have more eggs than Ron can use for the students classes. GRTU has been using these access eggs and plant them in the river using Whitlock/Vibert boxes to help increase their chances of surviva...
