In part 1 of his interview, Jimbo Roberts, Head of Fisheries for the Guadalupe River Trout Unlimited (GRTU) chapter discusses a bit of his fishing background, but focuses on the fishery itself and how GRTU got involved. Amazingly, it started with beer!
Today, GRTU is the largest chapter of Trout Unlimited in the world with over 5400 members. Its lease access program provides fishermen with access to many sites along the river and funds the stocking of trout along the river. Over 12,000 lbs of rainbow trout are stocked in the river between November and February. This year, GRTU stocked browns for the first time. In Part 2, Jimbo talks fishing the Guadalupe…. this is not to be missed. And Part 3, Lagniappe. Enjoy this “character” from the Guadalupe.
