Book a Fishing Trip

Guided fishing trips

Over the years, there are two things in particular that resonate with me that I have read about Arroyo City. The first described the person that named Arroyo City as having ambitions for it that it never achieved – urban it is not, so “City” is really a misnomer. A one street, no stop- sign, single restaurant burg nestled between the Atascosa Wildlife Refuge to the South, the King Ranch shoreline to the North and the Padre Island National Seashore to the East, Arroyo City is surrounded by largely untouched, pristine wilderness. That said, it is 30 minutes west of the Harlingen Airport, so access is easy and convenient. It lies approximately mid-way between Port Mansfield and South Padre Island, providing endless flats, backwater lakes and easy access to the gulf for tarpon. We generally fish out of South Padre, Port Mansfield or Arroyo City, but will also make trips to the Nine Mile Hole/Land Cut and the Brownsville Ship channel.

The second thing I read about Arroyo City that has always stuck with me was that if you like to fish, you will like Arroyo City. But if you like to fly fish, you will LOVE Arroyo City. It perfectly captures the essence of this tiny village. First, it lies in the mid-point of the Lower Laguna Madre, with hundreds of miles of undeveloped, ultra shallow shoreline, accessible only by shallow water poling skiff. With endless hard sand and grass flats, the setup is tailor made for sight casting, with a fly or spinning rod to trout redfish along with the occasional snook or flounder. Finally, we have two outlets to the Gulf at the East Cut and Brazos Santiago Pass. We use these regularly in-season to chase migratory tarpon.
