New to Texas with 5 decades of all things fishing experience. I'm a 60+ retired Marine in good shape for hiking backwaters away from the crowd. I just moved to our Texas home 15 minutes West of Sea World in San Antonio and am looking at exploring spots along creeks and rivers with light tackle within 2 hours for day trips and some overnighter tent camping.

guadalupe river between comfort and kerrville, I have hiked a few miles along the banks of the guad.

guadalupe below canyon lake, used to be some huge stripers in the river way back when it flooded.

guadalupe above canyon, rent a canoe and chase some guadalupe bass

Try the Llano in Junction, up river from South Llano River State Park. You can also rent a kayak and float 5-6 miles down to the park.

Also try the Frio in Gardner State Park.

There are sunfish and Guadalupe bass in both rivers.

Good luck!

A while back I was interested in fishing the Texas rivers but with very limited public access I gave up on the idea. I am sure there are some places out there but state trespass laws definitely limits your options.

TomRon, access without trespassing appears to be the challenge. I use the BaseMap app on my phone which gives property ownership boundary lines down to the meter, public or private with the landowner's name and address. The only problem is many adjacent landowners will challenge public land ownership, especially if you or I am not local, so I move on.
