About Spencer Bell

I worked as full time fly fishing guide in Arroyo City for many years before moving to Colorado. Whether fishing with fly or conventional tackle, Arroyo City is the gem of South Texas. What Port O'Connor used to be and South Padre never was.

Spencer Bell purchased this house in 2007

Why Spencer Bell chose Arroyo City

The house functioned for many years as a fly fishing lodge and is appointed as you would expect. It is comfortable but not stuffy. It has been voted the Best Rental on the Arroyo for 4 straight years.

What makes this house unique

Perfect location close to the park (ramp). Also, it sits at the widest point on the Arroyo, providing spectacular views of the surrounding South Texas ranch country.

Our family had a great time, lovely place.

  • 5 of 5

We all had a great time, the house was very nice and spacious. It has a very big kitchen for all of us to enjoy each other. The fishing pier was awesome for fishing or just sit and hang out enjoying a cold one. Only problem we had was not enough paper towels and toilet paper left at the house so I would recommend takeing some. Also we couldn’t hook up to the WiFi. Other than that we had a great time and enjoyed our stay, I would definitely recommend for a family get away.

The property was great, house was nice, clean, and a perfect fit for our group. Open kitchen, dining room, and living room with TONS of bedrooms and places to sleep. The palapa was great and was perfect for a morning coffee or evening gathering place. Definitely coming back.
