We have an idea for the November trip.

Let's take a trip to the Guadalupe.
To fish, or not to fish?  What a stupid question!

All

I would suggest that you aim for after the first stocking (which is probably just before thanksgiving) as its up for debate if any fish have managed to hold over this year.

Puck - I am sending you a possible alternate location for a November freshwater trip - check your gmail!

Cheers
Matt

We moved the Redfish Rodeo to the first weekend, with the second weekend as a back-up. The weekend before Thanksgiving (11/22 - 11/24) would work nicely.

I bet dollars to donuts the first stocking is 11/23.  That might make things difficult plus it is frowned upon targeting those fish the day they are released.  How about 11/28?  I would love an excuse to leave my in-laws house.

Well, I have heard that the 1st stocking is going to be earlier than normal.  Maybe this trip will work out nicely.

I'm likely going to head over on the 22rd after work & fish the 23rd & morning of the 24th.

Nothing elaborate, just taking it easy by the river. Bringing Tracy along to get her out of the house. Maybe I can get her to tie flies for me..... ;D

Looks like Kelley H is joining me.  We are bringing our better halves so they can wander Gruene/New Braunfels and enjoy time out of the house too.

C'mon folks! Come join us. A little bird told me that the trout will be stocked by then and hopefully, we will have some good fishing! I love the salt, but standing with your fly rod in a Hill Country river on a crisp fall morning is one of life's blessings.  Don't let this one pass you by!

It's my daughters 1st birthday party on the 23rd.  I might head over after the party but I dont think there will be any daylight left for me on Sat by the time I get there.  If yall are still around fishing Sunday let me know and we can meet up.  First stocking will be complete by the 23rd.

Anyone know a good anti-rain dance?  :P

We will be fishing Saturday & likely Sunday morning as well. If you want to find us, give me a call at 71 three - 21 three- eight 15 zero.
