You Should Have Seen the One that Got Away
Boy are you in luck. There are skads and oodles of places to go wet a line at the fishing spots we have identified in the Hill Country. Of course you know about all the state parks and, don’t get us wrong, even though they can be really good for fishing there are many other places that are out there as well. For example, at the right time of year you can have a blast and land your limit simply by going to some of the river crossings and to the private ranches that allow fishing. We also have provided you with references to our favorite bait stores. For you anglers with those fine looking bass boats, we have provided information regarding the areas that have boat ramps. Let us know if you are lucky enough to land Silver Dollar Doc, Old Tom, their progeny, or any of the other famous fish in the Hill Country. Also, don’t forget about the spring White Bass run up near Colorado Bend State Park.
You might also find the following information useful if you are heading out to wet a line. Take a look at Bud Priddy’s Fly Fishing the Texas Hill Country if you can find a copy and the Central Texas Fishing Report has useful information. For fly fishing fanatics we recommend this Texas fly fishing resource as well. In previous years, the TPWD has stocked trout in December on the Guadalupe River close to Canyon Dam, near the Horseshoe, and the crossings downstream from the Shoe towards Gruene. We recommend consulting the Texas Parks and Wildlife’s trout stocking page on a regular basis for information regarding trout stocking on the Guadalupe and other Hill Country rivers because the agency stocks trout in several areas of the region. You can get additional information regarding Hill Country fishing conditions at this TPWD website as well. Yet another TPWD website that discusses areas where you can go fishing in the Hill Country is located here.
