In Texas, anglers can now enjoy fishing access at four sites along the Guadalupe River. The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) has signed temporary leased access agreements with four Guadalupe River property owners to expand public fishing access to the trout fishery downstream of Canyon Lake.
Public fishing access will be available at Mountain Breeze Campground, Rio Guadalupe Resort (formerly Rio Raft and Resort), and Whitewater Sports from December 4, 2015, through May 4, 2016. This provides two additional months of access from previous years at these sites. Public fishing access will also be available at Camp Huaco Springs from December 4, 2015, through March 12, 2016.
Recognized as one of the top 100 trout streams in America and the southernmost trout stream in the United States, this segment of the Guadalupe River is managed through special fishing regulations (http://tpwd.texas.gov/fishboat/fish/management/stocking/guadalupe.phtml ) and is stocked in the winter months by the TPWD and the Guadalupe River Chapter of Trout Unlimited.
The leases provide anglers with free access to the Guadalupe River at the four properties from 30 minutes before daylight until 30 minutes after dusk. Anglers will be able to use the properties for bank fishing and to launch non-motorized watercraft such as rafts, kayaks, and canoes for the purpose of fishing.
Funding for the program was provided by the US Department of Agriculture Voluntary Public Access and Habitat Incentive Program.
