Guadalupe River, Below Canyon Lake Description

The Guadalupe River below Canyon Lake dam is listed as one of the top 100 trout streams in America. It is also the southernmost trout stream in the U.S. The Guadalupe River chapter of Trout Unlimited is the largest chapter in the nation.

Techniques & Tips

Bass fishing on the Guadalupe will consist of fishing surface flies like poppers earlier in the day and switching to sub surface patterns as the sun gets higher. Poppers should work through out the day when it is cloudy.

7-Day Forecast

Tubing has been shut down on the river this week so the river should be quiet.
