Fishing shares some characteristics of gambling, seems to me. Skill, luck, and ambient conditions are factors affecting the degree of success. In addition, the mood of the fish themselves is involved. One of the ambient conditions which I consider a negative is after a rain, while the darkness of th...

White were back today, Monday 3-17. Decided on a quick drift float trip before the expected Tuesday rains, launched at the bridge about 3:30 pm. Caught/released 7 whites between 4:30 and 5:30 pm at a pool right above where the original motor boat rapids were in high water. The place has very steep a...

Yet another rainbow (stranger) caught in a place it shouldn't be! I would definitely say it came from somewhere upstream, but where is a good question? I wonder if we have any Rainbows swimming around in the deep water of Canyon Lake? And that first Bass definitely has a lot of guadalupe in it judg...

Thanks for the great pictures and species expertise Jbo & Mc! There is a species I've caught at the Boerne Lake dam which the locals call "goggle eye", "rock bass" or "gaspergoo". Has the flat body of a perch and a large mouth shaped like a black bass more or less! Want to hazard a guess as to what ...

I have a Hobie Floatcat without a motor. I've paddled it quite a ways upstream from Reimers before. There was one faster riffle that I nearly didn't make. How does the current on that section of the Guad compare? Is the low water bridge near the boat ramp? There is plenty of parking at Rebecca brid...

Rebecca bridge is low and perfect for my lightweight 6' inflatable kick boat, or a float tube. Lots of portaging required because of shallow rapids. Or you can have a motorboat bring you up from the Rebecca launch ramp and wade across the very shallow rapids working your way upstream...

Whites shut down on my 2 hour 3 mile drift down from Rebecca Creek Wednesday before the rain started. Still picked up 8 guad and blacks good size, and 2 big perch. Put in time was about 3 pm. Lots of huge fish scampering about (Stripers?)as you drift over but not biting. Expect more waves of whites ...

Time was about 3:00 pm or so. Must have hit the leading edge of the white migration because only caught additional ocasional blacks upstream from the point where the whites were massed. There are a series of shallow rapids and the fish were in holes just downstream waiting for anything that might wa...

Oops, that would be the Guadalupe. Water is very low from Rebecca Creek bridge and the clearest I have seen it in years. You can see the fish down 6' in the holes and they can see you. But they are ravenous with the huge numbers and will go for just about anything. Best to get to the quiet places wh...

White bass were bunched up about a mile above the rapids where the motorboats are blocked off. Caught and released 31 black and whites combined in about an hour last Friday Feb 29. Used lures, but not fly fishing equipment.
