Guadalupe Bass Contest

Texas Parks and Wildlife released 15 retired Guadalupe Bass broodstock back into the South Llano River on October 17, 2017. The broodstock were used to successfully restore the genetically hybridized South Llano population. To celebrate this and other recent conservation successes for our state fish, Llano River Watershed Alliance is partnering with TPWD and Bass Pro Shops on a prize giveaway in which prizes will be presented to anglers who catch these Guadalupe Bass and return a tag. Eligible Guadalupe Bass will have registered TPWD Floy Tags. If you catch one of these fish, please clip (DO NOT PULL) the tag and take a photo with the fish.

PRIZES Include fly rod and reel combos, fly fishing vests, landing nets, and fly assortments donated by Bass Pro Shops.

 Contest will run from 10/20/2017 to 12/31/18. The first 15 anglers to contact Llano River Watershed Alliance with clipped, registered tags will receive a prize. To be eligible, you must clip the tag from the fish, record the capture location, and please take a photo with or of your fish!

Representatives of both organizations will join us at Oktoberfisch.  So….. come visit

Welcome to the Texas Council!! The Texas Council was formed  to unify the clubs in our state. Texas was previously divided with the northern clubs belonging to the Southern Council and the rest of the state belonging to the Gulf Coast Council. A unified state is beneficial in many ways that will support and grow fly fishing in Texas.

Please provide any comments, suggestions, or activities you wish the Council to consider. We greatly appreciate your support.
