Re: We need Rain !

Looks like the upper Guad is getting some good rain. Not enough to get it out of the lower flow hole it's in, but some good rain nonetheless. :) There was a slight bump in flows to around 65 but its back down again. At the very least its keeping temperatures cool. Hope those trout are finding thems...

Re: Fly Tying Hacks

I'm posting here in the hopes this thread gets going. As a novice tier I'm sure this could be very helpful. One "hack" I have is using materials found at the local grocery or arts/craft store. Many times these are a fraction of the cost of ones actually meant for fly tying. Glass beads: These can be...

Re: We need Rain !

At any rate, it's good that we'll have some holdovers. And it's great that we have Jimbo working tirelessly for the organization. He's the most important holdover. :lol: I couldn't agree more. I can only imagine all the logistics that goes into making all this happen. The fish I caught as late as J...

Suggestions for guide trip in Vancouver area.

Next week I'll be driving up to Colorado/New Mexico border to fish the Rio de Los Pinos. I'll post some pics. However what I need suggestions on is the following week I'll be in Vancouver, BC with the misses. Has anyone done a guided trip in that area? Bull trout would be a fun target, but also pink...

Re: Striped Bass -Guadalupe River Below Canyon Lake Dam

There's a good size striper in the fast water below #5. How do I know? Because I hooked a good size sunfish and it stole it! Easy meal for that guy.

Re: mentor needed

Hang in there. Last year was my first year fly fishing on the Guadalupe and I was constantly going home skunked. After a year to read, research, and learn from others I constantly have great days on the water. Not one day have I been skunked this year. On most days I catch more fish then I caught al...

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

Thank you for reviving this thread. I'm tying my own flies this season. Right now my box is well stocked with 18-20 size midges and brassies of different color and materials. I need to pick up some hooks and tie some in the 22-24 range. I also tied a range off eggs, San Juan worms, and squirmy worms...
