Guadalupe River Trout Fishing Guide Fly Fishing Report and Current Conditions: Updated Saturday January 18, 2020; Private fly fishing lesson with accomplished fly fisher Tyler Key produced an even better fly caster.  The truth is...even if we're an experienced and accomplished fly fisher we can stand to benefit from another professional watching your cast.  I like to compare it to a "golf pro" watching your swing.  There were a couple of small details that we worked on giving Tyler a few more feet on his already great casting ability.  While we were training on the Guadalupe we got a couple of strikes on the streamer but a few fish were rising to Caddis flies.  The release from Canyon Lake Dam was 82 cfs with clear water conditions.  Expedition Outfitters offers guided fly fishing floats, fly fishing classes, fly fishing lessons, and fly fishing instruction on the Texas Hill Country Rivers and streams near Austin, San Antonio and New Braunfels Texas.

Guadalupe River Fly Fishing Trout Report and Current Conditions:  Leah and Jarret Christensen from Austin joined Expedition Outfitters guide Kevin Stubbs for a half day lesson/float.  They both did great learning to cast and we set off in the raft and hit a few holes with some hook ups and good bites along the way.  The fish were wiley and didn't know we were going to release them unharmed...so they fought real hard.  There were quite few guide boats and wade fishermen on the river today (because it was a weekend) but if it's your only chance to get out...go for it.  There were a few bugs hatching today and we saw Caddis and Damsels.  There were a few Tricos too.  The release from Canyon Lake Dam was 82 cfs with clear water conditions.  Expedition Outfitters offers guided fly fishing trips, classes, lessons and instruction near Austin Texas, San Antonio Texas, and New Braunfels Texas too.

Guadalupe Trout Fly Fishing Guide and Canyon Lake Fly Fishing Guides Fishing Report and Current Conditions: Updated Saturday January 26, 2020; Scouting trip on Canyon Lake produced some nice striped bass on fly.  The Clouser Minnow got the job done for us.  The stripers start down deep and round up bait schools like underwater "Cowboys."  They drive the bait to the surface and surround them crashing them on the surface because there is no escape.  The shad and little blue minnows stay at the surface until boat traffic disrupts the stripers activity.  Expedition Outfitters offers private fly fishing lessons, classes and instruction in the Austin, San Antonio and New Braunfels area too.

Guadalupe Trout Fly Fishing Guide and Canyon Lake Fly Fishing Guide Fishing Report and Current Conditions: Updated Wednesday January 29, 2020; Canyon Lake scouting trip produced several nice stripers on fly.  The wind was from the Northwest about 16 mph but we found some sheltered areas from the wind near Lake Canyon Yacht Club.  The fish seemed to be concentrated on the perimeter of the large bait schools.  We observed with our powerful sonar the stripers working the bait like underwater cowboys and circling the school while driving it to the surface where they crash the unwilling prey because there is nowhere else to go.  We used shad patterns with floating lines and fluorocarbon leaders in the 16lb class.  The action was shortened when jet skis blew through our fishing area and pulled up near us...and asked, "You guys having any luck?"  I thought my girlfriend was going to jump out of our boat and beat their asses...but I managed to restrain her and told the guys we're having a great day and we'll see you later.  I gunned the motor, jumped up on plane and sped off.  No reason to hang there after they blew our chances.  Expedition Outfitters provides guided fly fishing trips, classes, lessons and instruction on the Rivers near Austin, San Antonio and New Braunfels Texas.  The best Valentine's Gift is the Gift of Fly Fishing.  Check out our Gift Card/Gift Certificate page to learn more!
