In San Antonio for the weekend. Anyone know of a good spot to catch the Rio Grand Cichlids. Would love to knock it off my bucket list.

Regardless of the water body, Rio's will be hard to comeby this time of the year. Not to say impossible, as I saw a 8" caught last month, but it was during a warm spell in a drainage ditch. Sure wish you could make it down here between later part of April through the first half of Nov, I could pretty much guarantee you a Rio after the water warms up. fish

Side Note: We had a great year in 2020 as far as the Rio bite goes. Caught plenty of Trophy Rios from late April till early November! thumb

Rios are on my bucket list. Hope to get down south this summer to try and scratch that itch. Maybe one of the rio experts here would help an old retired navy chief get into them?
