Ground Rules for catching chub:
Catch a chub= Personal Chub time in the tent 
1 chub = 5 min
2 chubs= 10 min
3 chubs within 1/2 hour; well then you get a half hour with your chub.

**These rules may change due to lack of chub**

CO to TX

Poudre River

After spending two great years in Fort Collins, Colorado, I decided to make a move down to Austin, Texas this last July to take a new job.  The timing on this seemed poor because I felt like I was finally figuring out the fickle beast that is the Colorado trout (although getting skunked on the famous Frying Pan River on one of my last days out there suggests otherwise).  Based on previous experiences in the south, I worried that my access to good fishing would be pretty limited without owning a bass boat (who wants a boat with seemingly mandatory glitter paint anyway? see below).


Boy was I wrong

Trout (probably just got dumped out of the truck)



El Gulfo
 Between the great bass fishing in the nearby rivers and reservoirs, to the (hatchery) trout on the Guadalupe River, to the saltwater action in the bays and surf, the possibilities are pretty daunting.  It isn't quite the same as the Poudre Canyon, but it's still pretty nice.
