Guadalupe River reports

steven bowka (sbowka13) reported - 1 - Excellent fly fishing: The trout fishing on the Guadalupe has been great over the past few days. Flows are shut off during the days, but bumped back at night and on weekends. Although it is very low, the river is still floatable and the fish have adjusted quite well. Trout remain in deeper water and in fast flowing shallow riffles. Nymphing reamians the best tactic, 9ft 5x leaders and 6x tippet along with limited weight should account for the low clear water. We have been seeing great numbers and size with two monsters breaking 24" last week alone. The river is fishing great overall, so get out and enjoy this incredible trout fishery.

steven bowka (sbowka13) reported - 1 - Excellent fly fishing: The trout season on the Guadalupe River has begun, ad the fly fishing has been good with daily improvements. As more fish have been released, they have settled into a good pattern and have begun to spread out. Nymphing deep guts, pools and runs has been productive as well as pulling streamers through deep pools and riffles. 5-6X leaders and tippet have been the ticket due to low flows and great clarity. Average size of trout has been great as always (1-3lbs), with daily specimens breaking the 5lb mark. Fishing has been good, so look us up at www.guadalupetrout.net to get out for a day of Guadalupe River fly fishing. (12/06/10)
steven bowka (sbowka13) reported - 1 - Excellent fly fishing: The Guadalupe River has finally gotten some drought relief. Recent rains have ended the drought and flows on the river have risen from 110cfs to over 500cfs. This has spread fish out and alleviated most of the wade fishing pressure which has made the float fishing HOT. In these high flows, attractor patterns such as san juan worms, eggs and stoneflies have been producing. Good hatches of tricos, bwo's and slate drakes have also been steady with warmer temps. The river is fishing great so give us a call and lets go fishin. www.guadalupetrout.net (03/04/10)
steven bowka (sbowka13) reported - 3 - Fair fly fishing: The Guadalupe River has been OK the last few days. We have gotten some cold and rain which made things tough, but will help in the long run. Fish have been finicky, so changing flies frequently has been par for the coarse. The most productive patterns through the last week have been streamers, stones, and baetis imitations. The river got its second stocking Dec. 4th, which will drive competition and should improve the fishing forecast for the next few weeks. For more details, visit www.guadalupetrout.net. (12/08/09)
steven bowka (sbowka13) reported - 1 - Excellent fly fishing: Fly fishing on the Guadalupe River has been great. Recent rainfall, cooler temps and the first stocking have ramped up the trout fishing on the Guadalupe. The fish are still podded up pretty good at stocking locations, but this should soon change due to two factors. First, the area is expecting another heavy round of rain this week, which should spike flows and move fish. The second is the Dec. 4th stocking, which will dump another round of trout into the water driving competition, which again spreads fish for forage opportunities.

Guadalupe River descriptions

Andy Idema (aidema) wrote - The Guadalupe River originates in the Texas Hill Country, and eventually flows into the Gulf of Mexico. When the dam was completed in 1964 a tailwater trout fishery was born. Texas Parks and Wildlife saw the opportunity to create a trout fishery due to the colder water flowing from the bottom of Canyon Lake. Fly fishing in Texas for Guadalupe River trout is excellent.
