Fishing Outlook & Conditions
Alvin Dedeaux's Tip of the Week
During the summer months the Guadalupe River is one of the most popular recreational rivers in Texas. The "tube hatch" continues through until around Labor Day. Fishing early in the day is the best way to avoid the crowds.

Techniques & Tips as of 7/22/21
Targeting warm water species is the way to go during the warmer months. Guadalupe, largemouth, and smallmouth bass as well as several different species of sunfish are all found in the Guadalupe River. There are even a few large striped bass in some of the deeper holes. Topwater flies as well as streamers will produce this time of year. Due to low flows and higher water temperatures it is best not to target trout this time of year. Even though the trout may swim away after release, many of them will die later due to the stress.
