Guadalupe River Fly Fishing

June 1, 2016

Guadalupe River Fishing Report

June 1, 2016: We are in summer mode on the Guadalupe.  Make that big water summer mode.  Flows on the Guadalupe are too high for fishing right now.  The water temps from the dam to fourth crossing are good for fishing in the mornings, and hopefully we will see flows moderate in the next couple of weeks

Suggested flies:  The same flies that had been working in April were working in May.  We just need to wait a bit for flows to go down.

Warm Water Report

June 1, 2016:  This would be the lipstick on a pig report......Flows are high throughout Central Texas right now.  The South Llano has been my go to for the high flows this Spring, and the fishing near Junction has been good.  Conditions are setting up for a good to very good June and July for water flows throughout the area. 

The Colorado River below Austin is too high to fish.  Don’t even try right now.

The Llano River in Mason and Llano Counties is running high and off color right now, and the South Llano is even up.  The fishing on the Llano has been good to very good this Spring, and we should see flows on the river moderate in a another week.  Once that happens, we should see some very hungry fish.

The San Marcos River is also running high downstream of where the Blanco flows joins the San Marcos.  Great flows for the water safari, but not so much for fishing right now.

The Guadalupe River near New Braunfels has been fishing very well for smallmouth on topwater, but just like other river we are seeing too much flow.  These flows should moderate in the next 10-14 days.

Suggested Flies will vary with the river.  Dark colored streamers for off color water.  Poppers have been working well on the Llano and Guadalupe as well.
