Guadalupe River Fly Fishing

Introduction to Fly Fishing on the Guadalupe River

Half Day Group Introduction


Castell Guide Service offers a half day group instruction on the principals of fishing the Guadalupe River for trout.  This is a great opportunity to learn the basics of fly casting and fishing on the Guadalupe River for trout.

In this class, you will learn about:

      • Overhead and false casting
      • Roll Casting
      • Reading Water
      • Flies to Match the Guadalupe River Hatches
      • Knots for fly fishing
      • Rigging for the Guadalupe River
      • Public Access points on the Guadalupe River tailwater
      • WE WILL FISH!

This is a small class setting that will allow for individualized instruction as well as group interaction that we have found to be an effective and and economical way to learn about fishing for rainbow trout on the Guadalupe River below Canyon Dam
