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...

Re: White Caddis imitation

I googled the Ice Wing Caddis Pupa and that is a terrific looking fly.
I think I will add it to the rotation.

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

We are on the verge of another season. Water tables are up and we should see a bunch of flows this winter 90-150cfs. Now it is supposed to be a drier and warmer winter because of a continuing La Nina along the pacific coast. These conditions should go to ENSO neutral after February returning to norm...

Re: Looking for Shade

I wish we could fish for the Guadalupe's Trout right now. It was so close to happening this summer..... then one heavy rainfall too many. I would say it's still 2 months off at the earliest before our first stockings. So get out there and chase Bass and Perch, it's just starting to get good now. Jimbo

Looking for Shade

So it's been a while since I posted anything about recent fishing trips. Work has really cut into my time since returning from Colorado. I had a few real estate deals going and then there was getting everything ready for the coming Trout season on the Guadalupe. Renewing leases for the Lease Access ...

Re: Summer success

Yeap, it was a short trip this year.
Seems my medications were causing me to be more susceptible to altitude sickness.
I couldn't sleep well at night and had to come down to lower elevations.
So my trip ended after just 6 days.

Re: Flies??

You wanted to know what a WD40 looked like. I'll get you started..... http://i229.photobucket.com/albums/ee95/jimboroberts/2016/IMGP2348_zpsohn365tj.jpg This is one of my favorite flys. They imitate the smaller mayflys; BWO, Tricos and the like. This one is actually called a sparkle WD40 for obvious...

Re: The Slab

You could probably fish both ways. I've only fished upstream.
It's probably just as good downstream assuming there is not dam backing up deep water downstream.
I would look at it on Google maps before going too far.
