So my wife and I went up to Canyon Lake for a little vacation for our anniversary. We were out there for 4 days. 2nd day we were out there, we kayaked the lower Guad from White Water down to Rio Raft. Didn't catch a whole lot. One of the biggest longear sunfish I have ever seen and an accidental rainbow trout about 15" long. The trout was a funny story by the way lol. The third day we kayaked the upper Guad from Nichols Landing down to Guadalupe Canoe Livery. It was cloudy that day so I decided to go top water the whole day. Caught a couple nice Guadalupe bass, a baby small mouth, 1 baby striper, and a good amount of longear sunfish. All was caught on a shad patterned rapala topwater jerkbait, about 3" long. Didn't change the lure all day. Saw a couple gar, one was about 1' the other about 3'. Nice trip. I always hear people badmouthing the upper Guad right above Canyon Lake, but I will tell you, under the right condition, the right baits, and the right technique, the upper Guad can be a whole lot of fun.
