If you want to get into Kayaking then go to PACKTX > Home
Read the trip reports and check out the pictures. Another must visit is REDIRECT
Most of PACK trips are saltwater and a great way to learn spots to fish up and down the coast of Texas usually within 3 hrs. drive of Houston. Couple of trips each year are out to islands for 3 days. They fish both fly and conventional gear. I use 8 wt. as do most people.
Want to understand the temp difference is think of a mild sauna bath June-September. I live here and the fishing has its excellent months and then just a few slower months.
Fresh water trout are only available in Guadalupe River below Canyon Lake. Guadalupe River Trout Unlimited (GRTU) has a website. Join the club next fall for excellent access, fishing and getting to help with the club stockings. Will need to join if you want excellent access as all property is private with no trespass. A few places you can pay to access if you do not join.
Welcome to Texas. Most people were not born here but got here as fast as they could.
