Hi everyone



I'm certainly new to this fine forum, but I have been fly fishing and tying
for about seven years. I haven't been able to fish like I want to lately, I'm
recovering from some health conditions.

Even though I fished for several years, I'm here to learn. I recognize that
when you stop learning you stop living.
Tight lines everyone!

Welcome Charlie!

I just had a buddy move to Houston. Is there any good trout water relatively close to Houston that you know of?

Thumbs up Re: Hi everyone

It is northwest of Houston. The trout fishing is the tailwaters of Canyon Lake
on the Guadalupe River. The tailwater extends about 7 miles south of the dam. Please contact the fly shop called "Greune Outfitters" in the historic
city of Greune, a northwest surburb of New Braunfels.

If you make it there, you must eat at the Gristmill on the banks of the Guadalupe River. This is a very beautiful and historic area. If you want a
nightime adventure. The oldest "dance hall" in Texas is Greune Hall right beside the Gristmill. There are probably 20 or so bed and breakfast inns
in downtown Greune. This is the most southern trout fishery in the south.
I hope this helps! BTW, I got my start in fly fishing at Greune Outfitters.
They gave me my first lessons, sold me my first and second rigs. They are great people.
Kind Regards,
Charlie47

I just found out that Canyon Lake is not releasing water, thus the tailwaters
temp is above 70 degrees. Thus making this a very poor time to fish for trout. The temp would cause great stress. The river is still a great fishery,
plus the other things to do and see make for a great trip.
