GRTU Lease Access Program Orientations at Sportsman’s Finest

Sportsman’s Finest is proud to be hosting Orientations for the Guadalupe River Trout Unlimited’s Lease Access Program (LAP)*. This fishing access program provides members with private property access to the river during a time of the year when access for fishing is very limited. Fees from this program are used to acquire the access and to stock the river with great fish! Orientation is required of all new participants in the LAP. Fees can be paid and membership acquired at these Orientations. A member of the GRTU Board will conduct the Orientations at Sportsman’s Finest on the following days:

Saturday, January 7, 2012, at 10:30am

No reservations are required. Orientations will start promptly at the time indicated.

*GRTU “Supporting Members” can enroll in the Lease Access Program. This program provides a “path to the river” over private property to legally access the Guadalupe River for the purpose of trout fishing during the season. The program runs from November 1, 2011, to October 31, 2012. Although several of the leased access sites are open year around, most sites are only open during the prime winter fishing season. All trout caught on a GRTU lease sites are catch and release only. You must attend a one-hour Lease Access Orientation before you can become a Lease Access Member. Lease Access Membership fee is $105 per year, and participants must also be a current National TU member plus a GRTU supporting member ($12 donation per year.)

Guide Alvin Dedeaux Program- “12 Months of Texas Fly Fishing”

Alvin Dedeaux has been fishing ever since he can remember, and fly fishing since he was 12 years old. His love for fishing has led him on an exciting journey which has cultivated him into a premier guide and an icon in Central Texas fly fishing and beyond. He has honed his fishing and guiding skills on the Llano, San Marcos, Guadalupe, and Lower Colorado Rivers since the early 80’s.

After managing the Austin Angler for over a decade, Alvin began guiding full time. He also guides in Colorado in the summer on some of North America’s premier trout streams. With more than 17 years of experience as a professional guide, casting instructor, and fly tyer, few are more knowledgeable or enjoyable to fish with. Alvin is eager to help you experience the best of what Texas Rivers have to offer.

Alvin will be sharing his years of experience and insight into fishing through the seasons in Texas with the Sportsman’s Finest customers. (Free program; no rsvp required)

For information on Alvin please visit his website:

– If you combine the knowledge you will get from this event with the knowledge you will get from the “First Ever Guadalupe River Trout Fishing Workshop,” you are going to have a head full of valuable information that will most certainly increase your odds of catching more fish in Central Texas and especially fly fishing the Guadalupe River.
