Guadalupe River Fly Fishing

Warm Water Report

The summer heat is mostly gone and the bass in the rivers of the Texas Hill Country are coming out of their summer lethargy. Water conditions on the Llano, San Marcos and Colorado Rivers are very good right now with clear conditions and very good water temps throughout the area.

I was out on the South Llano River in Junction this past week for the Fredericksburg Fly Fishers 6th annual Oktoberfisch event. Having missed the past three Oktoberfisch weekends due to my Colorado fishing schedule it was nice to get out on the S. Llano for some nice Guadalupe bass and sunfish, catch up with some old friends and tell a few fish stories along the way. If you are ever looking for a nice fishing outing in the fall, Oktoberfisch is hard to beat. For more information, check out the Fredericksburg Fly Fishers at

Guadalupe River Report

The Guadalupe River below Canyon Dam is doing well and Canyon Lake is up over two feet from the lows of this past Summer. There are holdover trout in the Guadalupe and if the air and water temperatures continue to moderate we should see some good trout fishing by early December. TPWD will start stocking trout on the Guadalupe in the first week in December and I suspect that GRTU will be starting at or about that same time.

Lastly, if you are in the area this weekend, the Fall GRTU meeting will be held this Saturday, October 24th. For more information, please visit:
