Upper Rio Grande River
The upper Rio Grande features two large bends with numerous coves and creeks. Zuberbueler Bend and La Bolsa offer the opportunity for multiple limit of bass by concentrating on the large variety of coves, canyons and grass beds.
This area of the lake is often the first to experience the change of the seasons, such as warming up first and activating the spawn days or even weeks before the lower lake.
Until recently, it was also fished less than much of the rest of the lake because of the long boat ride to reach it. With the paving of the road to the Box Canyon boat ramp, more anglers are making regular visits to this productive fishery.
If fishing on the Mexican side of the river, everyone in the boat must have a Mexican Fishing license.
