Guadalupe River Fly Fishing

Expedition Outfitters

Expedition Outfitters provides Guided Fly Fishing Raft Trips on Texas Hill Country Rivers near Austin, San Antonio and New Braunfels Texas. We float and fish the upper and lower Guadalupe River, San Marcos River, Devils River, Llano River, and other spring fed streams. Our trips target Guadalupe River Rainbow Trout, Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass, Striped Bass, Rio Grande Cichlids, Carp, Sunfish and Long Nose Gar. We also offer Fly Fishing Classes, Lessons and Instruction. Our expert Fly Fishing Guides are full time professionals with many years of experience leading expeditions in Texas, Colorado, Wyoming, Montana and British Columbia, Canada.

We utilize 14 foot "Aire" and "Outcast" brand whitewater rafts that are customized for fly fishing. They are comfortable boats with swivel seats and backrests. They have stable, hard, casting platforms for the clients to stand on; and the guide sits in the center and rows the boat. The anchor system allows us to position and hold the boat, so the fisherman gets the best shot at trophy waters. We provide all equipment and instruction. We welcome beginners and experts alike! Please note: All of our fishing trips are catch and release only with flies and artificial lures only.

About this trip

The Lower Guadalupe River is the southernmost trout fishery in North America. It is a tailwater fishery emerging from the bottom of Canyon Lake. Canyon Lake is up to 200 feet deep in some places, and harbors a cold water layer giving the rainbows a chance to live through the harsh Texas summers.

Full-sized rainbow trout (13-18 inches) are stocked by Trout Unlimited and the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.

They are a heat tolerant strain reared in Missouri.

The Guadalupe River Chapter (GRTU) of Trout Unlimited is the largest in the world. Expedition Outfitters supports the efforts of GRTU with donations of equipment, guided trips, and volunteer activities.

Please help support the efforts of GRTU by joining and volunteering.
