Found a great deal on Group-on for a bed n breakfast near Utopia, (on the Sabinal river) so the fiancé' and I are headed down this weekend. She doesn't know it yet, but there will be much river fishing! I did some research online, and it looks to be great place for small Largemouth, Bream/Perch, and Rio Grande Perch/Texas Cichlid.
Anybody have any tips on location, lures to use, and/or technique? I'm planning on taking some road runners, rooster tails, small poppers, crappie jigs, ect. I'm also going to bring the mask/snorkel and GoPro camera for some underwater footage hopefully.
Also - anybody fish the Frio in or around Garner State Park? What about the Sabinal up in Lost Maples?
Last question - what, if any, of these rivers hold good populations of Guadalupe bass? And, how can I tell the difference between Guads and regular LMB? Spotted lateral line versus a straight lateral?
Okay now last question - any bodies of water around that hold smallmouth?
