Re: Striper fishing on the lower guad?

I think one of the state record stripers for the Guad was caught around horseshoe area. Good luck, would welcome a post on river floating conditions when you get back. The lake at the dam area also has stripers, down deep this time of year. I have had good luck with stripers at the upper Guad a few ...

Re: Striper fishing on the lower guad?

There aren't as many stripers as other species like trout or even carp, in my experience. Some fishermen remove them for meat or because they prey on trout. Tubers don't start until after 10 am, and there should be fewer of them, because of the low water. Pon Hey folks, Ive heard there are stripers ...

Re: Kayak or Pontoon

With good skills, I would also go with 2 SOT kayaks on the SM river, unless it is strictly a drifting trip using oars where you get picked up downstream. When packing a distance to water, I would go with (2) "V" tubes, unless you can transport in a kayak to site by air (8# per vs. 35# per kayak). Pon

Re: Kayak or Pontoon

Where will you be using the boats? Tubes or toons are designed specifically for fishing and have a short learning curve, but are hard to propel any distance. Kayaks are more easily propelled unstable craft where fishing can be done as an afterthought, IF you already have the skills. Hope this helps....

Re: Trot Lines

Danny: I have also more seen limb lines as well lately. I believe they are both supposed to be tagged, otherwise they are illegal. Some remain abandoned in high traffic areas which I have to cross to get to better water. They become a serious hazard and should be removed, lest kids get hung up on th...

Re: Can it get any better than This?

This has to be some kind of record, 155 fish in 7-8 hours with a flyrod, no barbs?, no water? When I grow up I want to be like him. Thanks for posting, pics made my day.

Re: Cibolo Creek Help - First Timer

Thanks to internet resources, anyone can find and figure an access to just about any section of public body of water.

Re: Etiquette Astream - Refresher

What to do if you're in a floating conveyance (pontoon, float tube, canoe, etc.) and come upon flyfishermen? Portaging around is impractical and disturbing the waters almost unavoidable with very low power craft being unable to fight the current. The best I can think of is to get out and go around o...

Re: Wading guidelines in higher flows

Never fish Medina lake, but you might try the river between Bandera and Medina. There is at least one crossing where you can put in your Kayak and may be conducive to going up stream a little ways. Follow Hiway 16 out of Bandera toward Medina/Kerrville. There is a crossing that has a state picnic a...

Re: Wading guidelines in higher flows

It's still coming into Canyon strong at the other end also. Where to go fishing if the weather gets nice? Even if it ain't trout? Time to check out the small lakes or creeks if the wind lays low. I like Boerne and Rebecca Creek #11 once debris settles out. Any others? Pon Flows are up to 802. :shock:
