February Fly Fishing Report

To all who've recently subscribed to our newsletter: Thank you for joining!

We still have a few spots available for our Fly Fishing 101 and 201 this Saturday. Contact us if you can make it.

GRTU Troutfest is right around the corner. Get ready for a good time!

We are starting the year with a new website! Check out http://actionangler.net/ to book a trip, buy some gear or gift certificate, or get up to speed on the latest river info.


The last trout stocking on the Guadalupe River is complete. The river is full of sizeable rainbow trout. Many great fishing stories of trout biting on a long list of fly patterns (streamers, nymphs, worms, yarn eggs). With a river full of fish and good flows, fishing should be good into May. Make sure to book a trip soon to secure your date.

Flows on the Guadalupe below Canyon Lake are currently at 94 CFS. Lots of folks are asking if we are still able to do float trips. Absolutely! It wasn't that long ago that the flows were 50 CFS. The Canyon Lake level is a few feet low and flows could reduce more if rainfall doesn't increase. It's very important to keep a watch on the river flows. Wading can become dangerous if you are on the river when the dam suddenly increases its flow. We recommend visiting http://www.grtu.org/flow/ to stay informed of the lake level and dam release.

Please contact us if you want to experience some great Colorado or Hill Country fly fishing. Guided trips and gift certificates can be purchased online at http://actionangler.net/ by clicking the "BOOK NOW" button.

I'd like to fill you in on the most recent news in the Texas Hill Country and west/central Colorado.


1. Action Angler is a booking agent and guide for 1, 2, and 3 day float trips on the Gunnison River through the Gunnison Gorge and lower Gunnison River. This allows us to hold preferred dates for our clients. The Gunnison Gorge is thought of by many as a Top 20 Destination To See Before You Die, and also referred to as a mini-Grand Canyon. The lower Gunnison River is an easier-paced section, with day trips starting at $600. Please contact us for details.

2. If you are planning to be in the Aspen or Glenwood Springs areas in the summertime or early fall, call Aspen Fly Fishing and/or Crystal Fly Shop to book trips. Be sure to request Chris Jackson as your guide. http://www.aspenflyfishing.com/ http://www.crystalflyshop.com/index.html

If you are planning to be in the Crested Butte or Gunnison areas in the summertime or early fall, call Dragonfly Anglers to book trips on the upper Gunnison River and request Chris Jackson as your guide. http://www.dragonflyanglers.com/

3. Please let us know if you are interested in a premier Bull Trout fly fishing destination in the Northern Rockies of British Columbia.

Here are a few nice river homes to stay at while visiting the Guadalupe River. Two of them are located across the street from the fly shop and can sleep up to 8.
