I fought with the wind on Boerne lake early yesterday for 3 hours without a bite, though something very big breached about 20 feet from me and then disappeared. After that I went to the Guadalupe river and spend the rest of the day paddling and dragging my kayak through shallow rapids. I did manage to catch some bass eventually, though pretty small. I had a couple OK sized ones bite but not get hooked. Also saw a big school of carp, a couple catfish, a few sunfish (they would chase but not bite) and coolest of all, two spotted gars about 3 feet long cruising along the river bottom. Overall though there were not many fish for so much fishy looking water. I'm not sure if I caught spotted or Guadalupe bass, the pic is the biggest one which was only around 8-10 inches, but fun to catch. Oh and the water was cold. Boerne lake was 53 degrees. I didn't measure the river, but it felt colder than the lake, probably in the 40's.

way back when boerne lake was awesome for some night fishing. big grass flat straight out from the ramp about 2/3 of the way across. black n blue craws and black buzz baits along the bank. had a lot of nights we caught multiple 3-7#.
this pic was (weird enough) dec. 31 where the creek starts, small rock outcropping on a spinner. was lake record back in 1990. been a while. lol
she was released back alive and kicking, held her in a 120 qt. cooler till the pic was taken. and I don't hold bass like that any more, lol.

if you still can access it, the river in town used to be a hoot for numbers, nothing over 2# but used to be all over by the little park.

used to be a meat market there, both sides of the bridge were good to walk.

Its still accessible and fishing the bank opposite of the park will produce some #4's and #5's and maybe larger if you're lucky. Back in the day before they built the apartments below the dam, we would catch some as big as #7 out of that creek all the time. Apartments came and the rest is history.
