Re: We need Rain !

The upper basin on the Guadalupe is everything above Canyon Lake. So when it rains in the upper basin all that runoff has to go into Canyon Lake. And we missed significant rains in the upper basin again. The river up there is really starting to drop. It's not looking good for the lake to get to pool...

Re: We need Rain !

That was during the storm and the waves messing up the gage readings.
It's 908.92'msl and still rising ever so slightly. Next good chance for significant rain is next week.
Maybe a rogue T-Storm will develop out of the blue.

Re: We need Rain !

It getting "iffy" again. The lake is close to pool, but if the past summers are any indication, we need rain now!!! If we don't get the rain in the next week or so and get the lake to pool, it probably won't happen this summer. So say a little prayer for the right amount of rain in the upper basin. ...

Re: We need Rain !

Under certain conditions GBRA will cut the flows for weekend recreation. The lake must be below 910cfs, there must be no significant rain in the forecast. And it must be sometime after Easter but not after Labor day. There are other reasons GBRA will cut flows. Their annual inspection of the dam, re...

Re: We need Rain !

Very little rain fell in the upper basin. The river came up about 20cfs at Spring Branch. Not nearly enough to raise the lake back to pool. The lake will start dropping again simply because of evaporation as the summer heats up. We need a heavy rain over the upper basin over the next couple of weeks...

Re: White Bass

If you're going for different species and live close to Houston, you should go over to Sabine Lake and try for a Yellow Bass, true cousin to the White Bass you just caught. Good Luck !

Re: We need Rain !

The upper Basin pretty much missed catching any significant rain these last few days. Tomorrow we have a better chance at catching the rain we need to raise the lake back up to pool. So I'm hoping the clouds are thick and the rain comes in buckets..... Tom tom tom tom..... Tom tom tom tom..... Tom t...

Re: We need Rain !

As much as we would like to think the lake could be managed for the Trout fishery, it is primarily a flood control project designed and managed to control downstream flooding. Secondarily it releases water for historical water right demands downstream and thirdly the water is used to create electric...

We need Rain !

Well it's that time of year again. The lake is close to pool, but we need the lake to reach 909'msl to have the flow agreement to kick in this summer. I've been watching the water temps on the monitors up and down the river and it's already exceeding 70 in the afternoon. So we need the right amount ...

Re: Striped Bass -Guadalupe River Below Canyon Lake Dam

I was fishing last Friday at #5. After releasing a nice Trout I saw a Striper about 20lbs come up out of the deep and look for it.
It was seen half-way between Barking Dog Pool and S Turn Rapids, Go get it !!!

Re: Striped Bass -Guadalupe River Below Canyon Lake Dam

These are the spots I know hold Stripers..... The stretch from the dam down to Horseshoe Falls holds the greatest numbers, from the 306 bridge at Maricopa down about 1/3 the way around the tubers loop, from Little Ponderosa down to the Devil's Playground also holds a large number of Stripers. Also y...

Re: White Bass

I would say the White Bass runs are over. You can still chase them but you will have to fall back and look for them in the lakes. If you can find a school of White Bass in the lakes right now they will be easy to catch. After the spawn the fish are ravenous and will be trying to fatten up again. For...

Re: White Bass

I've heard at Colorado Bend the males were there a couple of weeks ago so it should be in full swing now.
And Canyon Lake upstream of Rebecca creek has also been happening.

Re: Lease Expansion beyond the Guad

TPWD has been working on a Access Program of their own.
There are other sites on other rivers they have leased.
I don't have a link, but look on their site and you will find them.

Re: Lease Expansion beyond the Guad

Securing access to other rivers is not in the cards for GRTU. I need more access for Trout Fishing and costs are continuing to go up on everything including the purchase of Rainbows and Browns. We are already talking about having to increase the price of the Lease Access program again. There are man...
