water conditions + fishing report
Canyon Lake is currently sitting at 907ft with some recent rains from a low pressure disturbance from the Gulf of Mexico and a secondary area of low pressure from the Pacific within the past month. Flows out of Canyon Lake Dam are being maintained at 98CFS with morning water temperatures around the Horseshoe section of the Guadalupe River reading in the mid 60's. Mid day water temps at the Whitewater: 306 bridge at 70 degrees. Trout season is going to be in full swing soon!
Guadalupe River: Some trout activity at dawn before the water temperature rises above 68 degrees. San Juan worms, midges in black or olive, and leech or wooly bugger streamers have been successful. Fish are eager early in the season which makes it possible to fish larger flies. Bass and panfish can be fished early and late on top water with poppers (white) and terrestrials. Mid-day move to streamers - lunch/brunch moneys in tan, bluegill or brown/olive crawfish imitations along with wooly buggers.
