The Devils River is a little known jewel of a river in Southwest Texas. The river flows clear, clean and cold. It is an unpressured fishery full of desert smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, bream, catfish, and carp. The river is highly protected by adjacent land owners and angler's wishing to keep the river secret. The Devils River is one of the toughest, most demanding floats in Texas. It is truely a wilderness float that will test the most hardened adventurer.
To fish and explore this river, one must know a landowner, fish at the State Natural Area, or put in at Baker's Crossing and commit to the treacherous twenty-something miles to one or two outfitters who will offer a full day shuttle back to a vehicle at Baker's Crossing.
We would like to present the "Ryes 'n Sons Ranch" for your angling and exploration pleasure. Come visit the 6000 acre ranch owned by Mr. and Mrs. Rylander. The Rylander's have been gracious enough to allow us access to their ranch below the last known take-out on the beautiful Devils River.
We are able to offer very comfortable lodging, generous and great tasting meals, and outstanding fishing. We are also able to provide hiking tours to several rock art venues on the property and even hunting for white-tailed deer, mouflon sheep, aoudads and other native and non-native species that roam this arm of the Chihuahan Desert.
If you need to get away from the pressures of life, let us provide you with a weekend of naturality.
