The San Marcos River bubbles out of the Edwards Aquifer into Spring lake on the Campus of Texas State University in beautiful San Marcos, Texas. Aquarena Springs pumps close to 100 million gallons of gin clear water a day at a constant temperature of 72 degrees, creating one of the cleanest rivers in Texas, as well as one of it's finest bass fisheries. Due to the clarity of the water most strikes are visible and heart pounding! The sight of a Largemouth Bass crushing a popper is an exhilarating feeling matched by few strikes in the angling world. When fishing streamers or soft plastics around structure bass will suddenly appear out of what seems like nowhere to inhale your offering. "You never know what your gonna see on the San Marcos, but something magical always seems to happen" is my motto. Whether it's a heart stopping strike from a ferocious bass, the sight of any number of majestic birds, or the beauty of the evening sun hitting the cypress trees just right, the San Marcos never fails to amaze me.
