When to start fishing the Guadalupe for trout?
 
I'm new at fly fishing. I've made a couple of trips with a guide while on vacation. I must say that fishing for trout was an awsome experience. But I live down here in the south. I'm told that the Guadalupe is stocked with trout, and I was wanting to know when is a good time to start fishing. Is Thanksgiving to early?

Thanksgiving may be a good time to start fishing the Guadalupe. They stock the tailwater section below Canyon lake near New Braunfels(according to Big Cliff). Check the thread "anybody fished the Guadalupe river" for a picture of the "tube hatch". I was going to be in the Comfort, Tx area and wanted to fish the river but one look at that picture changed my mind. Winter is the best time to fish Gaudalupe.

the only time to fish guadalupe for trout is winter and early spring, after that it is really too warm, and it becomes a tubers paradise, as well as a warm water fishery.

Check with guadalupe TU to see when it is stocked and if there is a delayed harvest period.

I've seen that in the summer before. (Way to many people for me ). I was wanting to make sure that the tubers are indoors and it would be cool enough so the fish wouldn't exspire.

once the water temp gets below about 50F you wont see many tubers
