Increased Trout Access on Guadalupe Riverby: theangler
Recognized as one of the top 100 trout streams in America and the southernmost trout stream in the United States, the Guadalupe River below Canyon Reservoir is the only stocked trout fishery in Texas where trout survive through the summer. Free fishing access to the trout fishery is now available at Whitewater Sports, Rio Raft and Resort and Mountain Breeze Campground. Additional free fishing access will be available at Camp Huaco Springs beginning December 7, 2012.
Site maps, specific conditions for angler use at each site (including any special fishing regulations), and a link to the trout stocking schedule and locations can be found on the TPWD River Fishing web page http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/fishboat/fish/recreational/rivers/. Trout stockings are scheduled for this segment of the Guadalupe River on Dec. 7, 14, 21 and 28 and Jan. 4, 11, 18 and 25. Two of the four fishing access areas have special fishing regulations for rainbow and brown trout.
Directions to these new angler access areas and information on special conditions on use will be available soon on the TPWD River Fishing webpage at: http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/fishboat/fish/recreational/rivers/
These new leased fishing access areas were made possible with grant funding provided by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Voluntary Public Access and Habitat Incentive Program.
