‘Tis the Season for Rainbow Trout Fishing in Texas
December 1, 2016
Remember December – Lake Texoma Striper Fishing “ON FIRE!”
December 7, 2016

Guadalupe River Trout Unlimited member Gary Cobb of Austin, Texas, prepares to release one of the rainbow trout captured during a Texas Parks and Wildlife electrofishing survey on the Guadalupe River below Canyon Lake.

AUSTIN—The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) has signed temporary lease agreements with four Guadalupe River property owners to expand public access to the trout fishery downstream of Canyon Lake.

Public fishing access will be available at Rio Guadalupe Resort (formerly Rio Raft and Resort), and Whitewater Sports from Friday, Dec. 2, through May 2, 2017. Additional access will be available at Mountain Breeze Campground Dec. 2 through April 16 and at Camp Huaco Springs from Dec. 2 through March 12 (except the weekend of Feb. 25-26 when Camp Huaco Springs will be closed for a special event).

Recognized as one of the top 100 trout streams in America and the southernmost trout stream in the United States, this segment of the Guadalupe River is managed through special fishing regulations http://tpwd.texas.gov/fishboat/fish/management/stocking/guadalupe.phtml. It is stocked in the winter months by TPWD http://tpwd.texas.gov/troutstocking and the Guadalupe River Chapter of Trout Unlimited.

The leases provide anglers with free access to the Guadalupe River at the four properties from 30 minutes before daylight until 30 minutes after dusk. Anglers may use the properties for bank fishing and to launch non-motorized watercraft such as rafts, kayaks and canoes for the purpose of fishing. The leases were made possible with funding provided by the U.S. Department of Agriculture Voluntary Public Access and Habitat Incentive Program.
