San Marcos River 

The San Marcos river is the jungle river of Texas.  The river begins in the town of San Marcos just upstream from some the sections we float on. The source is a series of large springs close to the Texas State college campus.  It flows crystal clear from Spring Lake and begins heading southeast towards Gonzales taking on a pale emerald green color along the way.  The steep banks here are filled with lush vegetation that provide plenty of cover for fish.  This is a great river for both experienced and beginning anglers.  Its deep pools and heavy cover harbor some nice fish for those who can place the fly.  However for folks who are just starting out the river's fishy banks offer many opportunities to learn where fish hold and how to land an accurate cast. 


As with all of our trips, everything we'll need for the day will be provided.  Trips will take place on a 14ft Aire raft set up with a comfortable NRS fishing frame.  All the fly gear will be supplied along with a cooler stocked with drinks for the trip. This is a great place to visit in the warmer months as its usually fishing good and nicely shaded.
