The Frio River is definitely one of the hidden jewels of Texas, located in Southwest Texas on the edge of the hill country and the South Texas Brushland, this river offers ample opportunities for clear water fishing.

The Frio River is great for largemouth bass. From December to March you can find rainbow trout. This river is crowded with tubers in the summer but it always has great spots for fishing lovers.
