November Fly Fishing Report

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

Fall is here! The temperatures have dropped and it's a great time to get outdoors. It's also a good time to reserve your dates for fall and winter in Texas. We'll be targeting bass through November, then trout late November through April. Check out to book a trip, buy some gear or gift certificate, or get up to speed on the latest river info.


The water temperatures on the Guadalupe are already low 60s to high 50s. Some trout have survived the summer heat in large part to the GRTU volunteers that feed the trout 2 days a week. The GRTU feeding program has kept some of the trout in cooler areas of the river. It's likely to find several anglers in the few locations trying to land a holdover trout. The flows on the Guadalupe below Canyon Lake are 67 CFS. This is the time to enjoy all the warm water species the Texas Hill Country has to offer. Many great fishing stories of bass biting on poppers and streamers. The Canyon Lake level is 20 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 to stay informed of the lake level and dam release. Make sure to book a trip soon to secure your date.

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 by clicking the "BOOK NOW" button.


The Action Angler fly shop and river access is open. We are operating on a reduced schedule Monday through Thursday until the trout stockings begin. Please call before you head out on these days. Purchases can be made through or website at any time of the year.

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