Stayed on the river with the kids for spring break. Did a little bit of wading every day. Trout were responsive when it was cloudy, not so much when sunny. And really not so much when my kids and others were splashing around. That being said, what they lacked in numbers they made up in size. Caught six rainbows total, smallest was 15 inches and largest was 21 inches, making it the biggest rainbow trout of my life. All on light spinning gear, small jigs and blades. Water was a little low, very clear, and cool but not frigid.

One more thing, lots of follows. Important to pay attention because sometimes when they follow if you make a hard sideways motion or in some form or fashion make an erratic move, can entice some bites. The big one and a couple others hit right at my feet. Reminded me of muskie fishing up north.

The Guadalupe is a fantastic fishery and this is a great time of year to fish it. My favorite wading spot is gone now Camp Beans bought up by Ingram Ranch. In the old days Mr Beans had quite a reputation of "not liking" campers; but for some unknown reason he liked me. I caught my biggest rainbow ever just upstream of his rapid after seeing small black /gray crawdads in the shallows and matching the hatch. My largest smallmouth also came on a float-trip down the river...those are good memories! Soon the crowds will arrive and the mayhem will commence. I'm glad you got to experience one of the best kept secrets in Texas Fishing. fish
