Guadalupe River Fly Fishing

February 1, 2009

Guadalupe River Update

Things are in full swing on the Guadalupe River, fish in excess of 22 inches are being caught and released seem commonplace and many anglers boating fish in the 15-18 inch range that are shaped like footballs. Flows are still low but float trips have provided the best opportunities as we are able to cover more water and often get into places that have less fishing pressure. Nymphing deep with an attractor nymph above a natural is bread-and-butter for the Guadalupe with favorite patterns including flashback pheasant tails, poison tungs, black zebra midges, various colors of RS2s and egg patterns in pink or orange. On overcast days we are seeing very nice hatches of tricos in the mornings, followed by blue winged olives in the afternoon. We are seeing good hatches of hexagenia on warmer days and the caddis are starting to show themselves a little more often.
