You don't need to take a class for stockers, practice casting for bass, perch or in your yard. It's like swinging a rope after a while you feel where your tip(the fly) is all the time. The trout stockings on the river I fish are crazy. You wade out early try to get a good spot put the right fly in the right place catch one every two or three drifts. You think you got it going on until you look over and see a kid matching you fish for fish with corn. A lil trick we use is if you can't get to the spot where most of the trout are holding because of the crowds is bring a cup or a lil bucket of dog food. The look on the people's face is priceless when you have 200 trout schooling In front of you.

Get u a guide down on the guad this winter. I can promise it will be a much more enjoyable experience than chasing them in the local ponds. Spending the day on the water with the right guide will drastically shorten the learning curve.

Hook up with the Central Texas Fly Fishers (club).
They will be able to make your fly fishing experience a very pleasant one!

Where do they release them around temple in a river or a pond? Llano wouldn't be a bad drive, they release them into the river in 4 different places. Below canyon lake is good plenty of places to access.

Last year it was in Belton not Temple

Nolan Creek: Located in Yettie Polk Park. From I-35, take exit 293A take Texas 317 North. Turn right on S. Main and left at Central Avenue.

Living Waters Fly Shop in Round Rock
Chris will teach you to cast, guide you on the Guadalupe or around Central TX

Can you learn to cast without an instructor? Yes...maybe...but why learn bad habits.

Highly recommend Chris.

Seconded. Although there are lots of good guides in the Austin/New Braunfels area, Chris and Living Waters are really a great go-to place that's not too far from you. You can practice casting to bass and sunfish on Brushy Creek right there in Round Rock and be ready for trout fishing all winter.
