Re: We need Rain !

It's that time again.
We are in an unusual dry spell.
NOAA is predicting a La Nina winter.
We need rain and we need it now.....

Re: Striped Bass -Guadalupe River Below Canyon Lake Dam

I sure hope you get them !
I am sure that the previous 2 years of flooding on the Guadalupe have put a bunch of new Stripers in the river that need to be caught and removed.
The sooner the better !

Re: Striped Bass -Guadalupe River Below Canyon Lake Dam

Word to the wise.... If you plan to keep Trout and are floating from the dam downstream into the 2 more restrictive harvest zones..... If you are stopped by a game warden you will be held to the laws that apply to the zone where you are stopped. Saying you caught the 5 fish in a zone with less restr...

Re: We need Rain !

I can not announce the first stocking date yet.
That being said I would go fish the Chama and Rio Grande anytime one can.
Our Trout aren't going anywhere and the Guadalupe will be waiting for you when you get back.

Re: We need Rain !

12,000lbs of Rainbows. We've been stocking 12,000lbs for as long as I can remember.
I know that we stocked much less back in the early 80's, but somewhere in the 90's we started stocking more.
I wasn't involved in stocking till around 2000, before that I have no data.

2,000lbs of Browns, that's 1,000lbs more than the last 2 years.

Re: We need Rain !

Nope, the lake moved up about 1/3 of a foot. It's still 2 feet away from pool and it's not going to make it any time soon. Here in San Antonio, at my house, we received just under 2 1/2 inches of rain. and much less over the upper Guadalupe basin. It did keep the river cool for a few days, but that'...

Re: We need Rain !

Guess what? It's raining. He's called Harvey. Apparently when I asked the rain to follow me home, Someone was listening. The real trick to something like this, is getting just enough rain in the right place to fill Canyon Lake to pool, but not much over that. It's about to get interesting here in Te...

Re: We need Rain !

It's all about cold water and how far downstream the flows will push it before the air temperatures warm it up. So first it's about how cold the water is to begin with. This season the water temperatures of the releases are about 60 degrees, most seasons will would see mid-50's, but that takes sever...

Re: We need Rain !

I wish Cindy would move west and get us the rain we need, but it's not looking good. The best chance for rain is Saturday and Sunday and not related to the hurricane. And I hate to say it, but reaching pool this late in June is probably not going to happen. We were real close but the lake is droppin...

Re: Terrible news - Zebra Mussels discovered in Canyon Lake

When I heard they were in Texoma years ago, I said to myself they're eventually going to be in every lake. What's worse is there is no known treatment that can combat them other than physical removal. I wonder how long before they start showing up in the river below Canyon Lake and what is that goin...
