A Quick Guide to the Delights of Austin Bass Fishing!

By: Daniel Eggertsen

Austin in Texas is the bass fisherman's, or woman's paradise! There is an abundance of great pools, lakes and rivers in which to fish for a number of species of bass, and this is all those areas are focused on! The area seems to be dedicated to the comfort of the bass fisher so you can stay there for a period of time if you do not happen to live in the local area. There are great facilities and friendly people, so you could ask for nothing more! It is perfect for a relaxing fishing vacation seemingly at any time of year. The only difficulty you will have is choosing where you want to fish!

Lake Austin perhaps the most famous bass fishing area in Austin. The bass are reportedly bigger than their peers elsewhere in the state of Texas, and the lake is extremely popular for a whole variety of other reasons besides that. The first is that it is extremely peaceful there and provides a great haven for fishing enthusiasts. The second is that it is an area of great beauty, which is actually conducive to a relaxing few hours fishing. The beauty of the area stems from the fact that there is natural vegetation that is native to the area. This enhances your experience as well as looking pretty! There are many nooks and crannies in which the bass can hide. This makes for a really good challenge if you are a competent fishing enthusiast. If you are a newcomer then it can provide good experience and enhance your technical skills.

There are boat docks present at Lake Austin so it is quite easy to set up on the lake for the day. You can also go there to fish all year round, but the seasons of Fall and Spring are best in terms of the bass population and the amount of people on the lake. Too many boats will send the fish into hiding in the vegetation, and not all of the boats will actually be there for fishing. The area is popular for days out and picnicking. However, regardless of what time of year you go, be sure to be there early in the morning to optimize your catches for the day.

Another of the better lakes for bass fishing is the LBJ. Named after President Lyndon B Johnson, this lake is enclosed so that it is less vulnerable to the elements. The shores of the lake feature boat houses there too but the bass fishing is better conducted from the shore. The lake has a lot of vegetation and this includes brush that has actually sunk below the water lie. This brush has been known to damage boats and leave them stranded! Unless you are an experienced sailor of fishing enthusiast that has faced such things before then you are best to keep your feet firmly on solid ground. LBJ is best visited for bass fishing in Fall and Spring again so that the population of bass is at its strongest.
