Guadalupe Trout Guide Fly Fishing Report and River Conditions:  Friday February 15, 2019, half day morning trip with Bob Long from New Mexico produced too many Guadalupe trout hook ups to count.  Several of our early hook ups fled when we found the hook that represented our Trico Spinner was straight with no barb.  We are not required to have barbless hooks and it only allows for a short battle and a jump or two before they become un-buttoned.  The sucker spawn egg performed well too.  The release from Canyon Lake Dam was 400 cfs with clear water conditions.  The weather was superb with partly cloudy skies and temps in the 80's F.  Expedition Outfitters provides fly fishing trips, lessons and instruction on the Texas Hill Country Rivers near San Antonio, Austin and New Braunfels.
