Devils River Fishing Guide Report and River Conditions: March 1 and March 2, 2018:  We had the pleasure of hosting Logan Brant and his buddy on the lower end of the river near the confluence with Lake Amistad.  The flow at Paffords Crossing was 130 cfs with clear water conditions.   The winds were pretty strong both days but we managed to get a few nice smallmouth and largemouth bass on topwaters and streamers too.  Luckily the overcast mornings gave us an edge when the winds were calm.

Devils River Fly Fishing Guides fishing report and river conditions:  Tuesday March 4 and Wednesday March 5, 2018; Kevin Stubbs and Greg Smith had the pleasure of hosting Garrett Gordy, Baron Boyette, Mike Sykes and his brother on the lower end of the Devils River near Devils Back.  The weather was cool with morning temps demanding waders to be worn.  The winds were high in the afternoon but not too bad in the mornings.  The water was gin clear with lots of sight casting opportunities.  We didn't do too well on topwaters but heavy streamers got down to the fish and woke them up.  Our best fly was the black tube jig.  Luckily our fishermen were great casters with lots of experience making the guides job easier!

Devils River Fishing Guide Report and River Conditions:  Wednesday April 4 and Thursday April 5, 2018; Jason Schell and his brother Patrick joined Expedition Outfitters guide Kevin Stubbs for a bass fishing adventure on the lower end of the river.  The weather was overcast with high winds and very challenging conditions.  Luckily the two fishermen were expert bass fishers and could make perfect casts.  We landed and released lots of nice smallies and largemouth on a variety of patterns.   Jason landed and released a five pound smallie and Patrick did have a five pound largemouth try to eat a fourteen inch smallie of the end of his line!

Devils River Fly Fishing Guide Fishing Report and River Conditions:  Updated April 11 and 12, 2018;  Devils River flow at the Pafford gauge was 200 cfs with clear water conditions. Two day trip with Bill Harabin, Peggy Russell, Brook Brown and Fidel Hernandez from Austin, Texas was challenging because of weather conditions and other factors.  The weather was cool and overcast with high winds hampering our fly casting and visibility.  There wasn't any sight casting but we managed to enjoy a good trip with a few fish landed.  We also toured the ancient Native American rock art paintings that date back 4,000 years and we enjoyed some great cooking from our staff at the ranch.  Expedition Outfitters provides guided fly fishing expeditions on the Texas Hill Country rivers.

Guadalupe River Fly Fishing Guide Report and River Conditions:  Updated Monday November 19, 2018; Canyon Lake Dam release 600 cfs with water temps in the low 50's F.   Ted Mendreck and Casey Kennedy from Sportsman's Finest in Austin joined Expedition Outfitters guide Kevin Stubbs for a quick nine mile float.  The day was pretty cool with temps in the low 40's and overcast skies.  We threw streamers and drifted nymphs in the cloudy water with mixed results.  Although we had a little action, it was pretty slow overall.  We have higher hopes for tomorrow and the next day.  Expedition Outfitters provides guided fly fishing raft trips on the Texas Hill Country rivers near Austin, San Antonio and New Braunfels Texas.

Guadalupe River Fly Fishing Guides Fishing Report and River Conditions:  Updated Tuesday November 20, 2018;  Canyon Lake Dam release 560 cfs with chalky green tint.  The bite was a little better today than yesterday but we were still struggling to bring fish to the net.  The hook ups we had were violent and the rainbows jumped several times.  All of the fish we encountered were fat and healthy.  We didn't encounter an insect hatch so we continued to strip streamers and we drifted some nymph rigs too.  The weather was beautiful with clear blue skies and temps in the mid 60's F.  Expedition Outfitters offers fly fishing gift certificates/gift cards if you want the perfect Christmas present for your friends and family who love nature and the outdoors with some adventure thrown in too!
