Paddling & Fishing A ‘Ribbon Of Life’ Through Texas

Meandering through the middle-of-nowhere, Texas, the Devils River offers those willing to make the trip some of the state’s greatest fishing.

It’s a two-hour drive from the closest town to hit the banks of the Devils River. The payoff? Over 47 miles of slow-moving pools, quick rapids, and some of the most pristine fishing in the Lone Star State.

Fly-fishing guide Alvin Dedeaux and tournament angler Miles Burghoff take on the Devils River and connect over their shared love of angling.
