I went to Mason this weekend to meet up with the DFW flyfishers for a Llano River trip. I used a 5 wt and caught Guadalupe bass, Largemouth bass, long eared perch and Rio Grande perch. I didn't keep track of the numbers since we ended up catching so many fish. I was looking for a smallie but never found one although another member of the group ended up catching a couple of smallies and a catfish on a topwater fly. Here are some pics of Casey and I fishing.

If you want a smallie

Go to the Devil's River in West Texas, north of Comstock. Some of the finest smallmouth fishing in the world, certainly the best in Texas. Only problem is the river is extremely remote. It is about a 20 mile float (drag in some places). Completely surrounded by private property. So you can't beach anywhere but on an island, and there aren't many of those. There is the State Natural Area that is a long way from the put in at Baker's Crossing.

It's a good three day trip. Not for the meek. But the finest smallmouth fishing on a pristine river........All in Texas. Beat that!

Thanks a bunch for the info. I'll give it a shot. I'm going to try to hit a river a month until winter then I'll just fish the Guad for Rainbows.

B-Bill, If you are going to fish the lower Guadalupe, check out the upper ( above Canyon Lake ) for a canoe trip. Ive done the upper from Cost, one of the first crossings below IH 10, down to Kendalia. It is a 45 mile trip . Depending upon water flow determines how fasr the trip will go. Regardless we would make it into a 3 day trip. We would camp 2 nights. Now its all private property , but we would low impact camp. We would find a secluded place and setup a camp. Most of the time we didnt even build a fire, used a portable stove to cook on. Dont leave a trace and we didnt have any problems. By the last day you didnt want to leave. Ive done this trip several times, always a different trip but the same river.

I hit the Guad every winter at the 4th crossing for Rainbows. I usually just wade but a yak trip is definitely in the near future.

Troy M, Shhhhh! LOL!
It has to be the best held secret in the state. But it's so remote hardly anyone can do it. Even if I blab about it. You have to be pretty hard core to do the trip.
