The Guadalupe River watershed begins in Kerr County and eventually drains into San Antonio Bay on the Texas Gulf Coast. Along this course, the river is dammed up at Canyon Lake. The section between the lake toward the US 281 Highway Bridge is fished year around but is primarily known for the spring White Bass and Striper run out of the Lake. The upper run of the River holds good populations of Guadalupe Bas, Smallmouth Bass, Largemouth bass, Rio Grande Cichlids, Pan fish, and multiple species of Carp.

Below the Canyon Lake Dam is where the tailrace of the Guadalupe River is formed, and where our float trips take place. Being named as one of the top 100 trout streams in the United States, as well as being the southernmost trout fishery in the US has brought much deserved attention to the fishery. Though the main attraction is our trout season which runs from October until May, the River offers excellent Bass angling opportunities as well with its diversity in species. Trout are stocked from November through March every year with many fish surviving year around. Our trips are floated, though there are opportunities for wading, in 14’ AIRE Whitewater Rafts, where you and your fishing companion will be taken down the river with one of our experienced guides. New and seasoned fly fishers alike will have excellent opportunities to hook 20" plus trout on this trip and personal bests are not uncommon!
