The Rio bite in the Hill Country and South Texas is still pretty GOOD! Been catching a few each time I have been chasing the sunnies. A lot of Rios are on nest and are not biting anything. The ones that are biting are being caught in 3 to 6 feet of water close to structure such as rocks,sunken tree limbs,and brush piles. Bottom techniques with small pieces of worm was the bait used. Catching summer time Rios. It just don't get any better! fish

Thanks Gitter for the reply! cheers I have caught most of my Rios off of the creeks this year! I will usually wait until mid September to really start fishing for them in the rivers and river lakes. thumb




Side Note: I have caught some nice ones already while fishing Dunlap and Mcqueeney! hooked

Those are cool to catch, like a bonus when you hook one! We caught some nice ones last week around junction after work. They bit grasshopper flies pretty good.

Love those Rios. Been catching a few nice ones on the fly! Nice fish Chuck.



Side Note: Only seeing a few on nest. Is their nesting cycle over?
