The Guadalupe River is the southern most Trout fishery in the United States and offers blue ribbon trout fishing right here in the Texas Hill Country. We now are guiding on the Guadalupe. In the past we have focused solely on warm water Bass Fishing, but many of our customers asked us to start guiding on the Guadalupe. With the addition of Jud Cole to the HCFF team, we now have a full time Trout fishing operation. You can expect the same level of five star service you have become accustomed to on our warm water trips here on the Guadalupe.
Formed by the Canyon Lake Dam, this tailrace is stocked with Rainbow Trout each year by both Texas Parks and Wildlife and Trout Unlimited. Along with these stockings, there are “hold-over” fish making this fishery productive well into the spring. As supporters of Guadalupe River Trout Unlimited, we monitor the Trout release dates and river conditions on a daily basis so we can offer you up-to-date trip advice.
This is a classic tailrace fishery with the majority of fish caught on nymphs and streamers with the occasional dry fly fishing opportunity. As always, we provide the flies used on your trip, allowing you to use the most up-to-date, productive patterns available. With our staff of expert fly tiers, you can be assured that you will always have the fly you need.
Hill Country Flyfishers will be offering both float and wade fishing trips on the Guadalupe. We use clean, well maintained pontoon rafts for our float trips, offering you the comfort and safety you have come to expect from us. We have also modified our outstanding lunch menu to reflect the cooler weather.
Jud and I hope that you will join us on the Guadalupe for the same great fishing experience you have come to expect from Hill Country Flyfishers. Same great guides, different river.
*We unfortunately can’t control the weather or fishing conditions so in order to provide the best experience possible, the river for your trip may change. Kevin will communicate any changes promptly prior to your trip.
What Is Provided:
We provide all the equipment (as needed), flies and leaders. Along with the fishing gear, we provide a full lunch, drinks and snacks. If you have special dietary needs, we can accommodate them. We also provide essentials like sunscreen and first aid items. At the end of the trip, you will be shuttled back to your vehicle. We also carry Boga Grips and cameras to record your catch so you can brag when you get back to the office. We also carry extra rods and reels in case they are needed, so you can rest assured that your day fishing will go uninterrupted.
What You Should Bring:
Bring any rain gear or cold weather clothing you think you might need. The weather here in Texas is unpredictable and things can change, so it is best to be prepared. Do not forget to bring any medication you may need during the day, and let us know if it needs special storage. For summer trips, I recommend long sleeve, quick-dry shirts and long, quick-dry pants to protect you from the Texas sun. I do not recommend sandals of any type. A good pair of felt-soled wading shoes or tennis shoes are a much better choice.
What You Should not Bring:
Leave your cell phones, pagers and expensive cameras in your car or at home. We carry cell phones for emergencies and we have cameras to record your catch. As a general rule, do not bring anything that can not get wet. Things have a way of migrating to the bottom of the boat and getting wet.
