    GRTU Anncouncements

    GRTU "Supporting Members" can enroll in the Lease Access Program. This program, provides a "path to the river" over private property to legally access the Guadalupe River. Program Requirements The program runs from November 1 to October 31 of the following year. Several of the lease sites are open year around, most site are only open during the prime winter fishing season. All trout caught on a GRTU lease sites are catch and release only. You must attend a one-hour Lease Access Orientation before you can become a Lease Access Member. Lease Access Membership fee is $95 per year along with the $12 GRTU supporting member donation

    All new GRTU Lease Access members, must attend a Lease Orientation Class before your application can be processed. Any former Lease Access member who have NOT been a member since 2003 must attend a Lease Orientation Class.

    I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.

    The best source of info on when they stock the river will be found on the website. The first stockings generally occur in november, but waiting a while longer until there's more fish in the river isn't a bad idea.

    There are 3 different ways to fish for the trout on the Guad: the public areas (some with a fee), the GRTU Leases, and with a Guide. The public areas include the free access area right below the dam, as well as some campgrounds that allow anyone to pay $3+ to fish for the day. The GRTU leases are explained further on their website, and definitely give you access to the CONSIDERABLY larger fish that they buy and stock. (4lbs is not at all rare) Fishing with a guide is the surest way to catch fish. Alvin is very highly regarded, as are Kevin Stubbs, Bill sumthineranuther, and if he's in the state Scott Graham. (no relation) If you're going to be in town for multiple days, spending the first day with a guide will likely make the following days much more productive.

    Some fish holdover and make it through the summer, but they're not easy to find. That said, a buddy of mine was picking up some on hoppers the other day.

    There are some lodges and cabins near the river where one can stay, or you can get a more typical hotel in New Braunfels and be close to the action. The wife might like staying at one of the B&B's in Gruene or Wimberley. Places worth eating at include the Huisache Grill, the NB Smokehouse, Rudy's BBQ, and the Grist Mill and Adobe Verde in Gruene.
    Thanks for the info, BigCliff. Looks like GRTU would be a good organization to join if you want to fly-fish for trout in Texas.
    On the whole, I'd rather be in Wyoming . . .

    You can also float the Guad on your own, right????
