Guadalupe River Fly Fishing Guide Fishing Report and Canyon Lake Fishing Guide Report and Current Conditions: Updated Tuesday October 29, 2019; private fly fishing lesson with Becky and Jeremy from Austin produced two new fly fishers.  They were smart and listened carefully to the guide/instructor.  The weather was cool with temps in the mid 50's F. and overcast skies with occasional drizzle.  We didn't see any insect hatches but we did see several hungry Osprey looking for a meal.  Canyon Lake was pretty calm until the front arrived and kicked up some choppy conditions with winds from the Northeast.  We've been getting some good stripers from time to time on topwater.  Expedition Outfitters provides guided fly fishing trips, fly fishing classes, fly fishing lessons and fly fishing instruction on the Texas Hill Country Rivers, Lakes and streams in the Austin area, San Antonio area and New Braunfels area too.

Guadalupe River Fly Fishing Guide and Canyon Lake Fly Fishing Guide Fishing Report and Current Conditions: Updated Thursday October 31, 2019; Private fly fishing lesson with Carrie and Marcus from Austin produced two new fly fishers.  They were smart and listened carefully to the guide/instructor.  The weather was unseasonably cold so we delayed our class until it warmed a little and it was nice.  The wind was strong but it made casting challenging and it was a great training exercise under adverse conditions.  We didn't see an insect hatch but we saw the Osprey and a Bald Eagle looking for prey.  Expedition Outfitters provides guided fly fishing trips, fly fishing lessons. fly fishing classes and fly fishing instruction on the Texas Hill Country Rivers, Streams and Lakes in the Austin area, San Antonio area and New Braunfels area too.

Guadalupe River Fishing Guide Fly Fishing Report and Canyon Lake Fishing Guide Fly Fishing Report and Current Conditions: Saturday November 2, 2019; morning scouting trip on Canyon Lake revealed very few boats or fishermen with the cold temperatures.  About 11:00 am a few schools of stripers drove bait to the surface and we spotted the action from the seagulls circling overhead.  The weather was nice with clear blue skies and clear water conditions and a slick lake surface too.  The slick surface revealed the surface feeding fish and we presented topwater flies to them resulting in several nice fish landed and released.  Expedition Outfitters provides guided fly fishing trips, fly fishing classes, fly fishing lessons and fly fishing instruction on the Texas Hill Country Rivers, Lakes and streams in the Austin area, San Antonio area and New Braunfels area too.

Guadalupe River and Canyon Lake Fishing Guide Fly Fishing Report and Current Conditions: Sunday November 3, 2019; private fly fishing lesson with Sam and his lovely wife Grace produced two new fly fishers.  They were both smart and listened carefully to the guide/instructor.  The weather was nice with clear blue skies and temps in the high 50's F.  Although Sam was quick to catch on his better half (Grace) was shooting line like a pro with minimal coaching.  Although ladies usually do better than guys with instruction, Sam did a great job with years of muscle memory from bait casting...all things considered.  The flow on the Guadalupe River below Canyon Lake was low and slow although the water was pretty clear with a green tint.  Expedition Outfitters provides guide fly fishing trips, fly fishing classes, fly fishing instruction and fly fishing lessons on the Texas Hill Country Lakes, Rivers and streams in the Austin area, San Antonio area and New Braunfels area too.
