Fly Fishing | Guadalupe River, TX

Today I went fly fishing with old friends on the Guadalupe River, near Canyon Lake. Weather was cold and overcast. The river was high and flowing pretty fast from recent rains. I caught a Brown Trout and a Rainbow Trout. Catch and release. Good times were had.
I enjoy fly fishing and when I visit Austin I head out with my good friend and fly fishing guide Alvin, owner of All Water Guides.
I have also included a link to information on Guadalupe River Trout Fishing.

Visiting Austin this week and I went for a hike up Mount Bonnell today. Stunning view above Lake Austin, seen in the accompanying picture I took.
Mount Bonnell is the highest natural point in the Austin area. At 775 feet, it provides a vista for viewing Lake Austin, downtown and the surrounding hills.
It has been a popular tourist destination since the 1850’s.

BBQ in Austin | Austin, TX

My trip to Austin also included sampling some of the excellent BBQ in Austin and Central Texas. Beef is King and the brisket is the star. I went to several notable locations in Austin and Lockhart, Texas. Some included Smitty’s Market, Blacks, and Kreutz Market.
I sampled the brisket, ribs and sausage. All of which was very good, but Terry Blacks in Austin was the winner this trip out. See the accompanying photo I snapped for the visual proof.
