Canyon Lake Fishing

Our property is a short distance from Boat Launch #1 at the southern end of Canyon Lake. 

What can be caught, time of day, limits, …

Below the dam where the Guadalupe continues its flow to the Gulf of Mexico, the TPWD often releases trout. <Insert photo>

A good place to start informing yourself about fishing on Canyon Lake is the Texas Parks and Wildlife site. You can even download from the iPhone and Android app stores and app titled “Texas Parks & Wildlife OUTDOOR ANNUAL.” It has sections on hunting, fishing, boating, and licenses. You can purchase licenses online too.

Marriott Getting into Home Rentals

Interesting article in todays Wall Street Journal about the Marriott chain getting into home rentals. Seems that Airbnb is taking away some of its business. Marriott won’t be ready to advertise vacation and home rentals until next year. All this is welcome news for us because HomeAway/VRBO just tacked on additional onerous fees to our clients. Our clients now have to pay an additional $200! More on this later.

Olive Trees

We moved two sapling olive trees from Houston over to the Rock Castle and planted them in the terrace facing Skyline. Now, to keep the deer away. Any ideas?

Tubing Season

Tubing season is almost upon us. A favorite starting point to drifting down the Guadalupe is at FM306 and FM2673.

Salt Lick

We met up with family at the Salt Lick in Driftwood, Texas last night. The Monday night crowd was light (by Salt Lick) standards. Took a photo of the meat cooking pit. Wow.
