In Texas, kayak anglers will now have greater access along the Guadalupe River. The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) has signed temporary leased access agreements with four Guadalupe River property owners to expand public fishing access downstream of Canyon Lake.
The southernmost trout stream in the United States, the Guadalupe River has been recognized as one of the top 100 trout streams in America.
A stretch of the Guadalupe River below Canyon Lake is managed through special fishing regulations and stocked in the winter months by the TPWD and the Guadalupe River Chapter of Trout Unlimited.
Public fishing access will be available at Mountain Breeze Campground, Rio Guadalupe Resort (formerly Rio Raft and Resort), and Whitewater Sports from December 4, 2015, through May 4, 2016.
Public fishing access will also be available at Camp Huaco Springs from December 4, 2015, through March 12, 2016.
The leases provide anglers with free access to the Guadalupe River at the four properties from 30 minutes before daylight until 30 minutes after dusk.
Anglers will be able to use the properties for bank fishing and to launch non-motorized watercraft such as rafts, kayaks and canoes for the purpose of fishing.
