Going to be in Austin over the next few weeks and wanted to head out and fish this lake. Looking for some recommendations for a guide that you have used in the past.

Thanks
Jake

Be advised that 30,000 grass carp were released in Lake Austin and every sprig of vegetation was removed, which pretty much ruined what had been a great fishery. Yesterday, we had a flood in the Austin area and the lake is very muddy. There are still a few good bass in the lake, but they are few and far between.

Interesting news, I will be down there for a couple of weeks and would be willing to wait a little for the water to settle down. Any other lakes I should check out instead? Knew about the flooding so if it doesn't work out then it is what it is.


Thanks all.

To say Lake Austin is fishing rough right now is an understatement. It's definitely not what it used to be! Lake LBJ is probably the best lake here in Central Texas right now for numbers or big fish, IMO. But if you have your heart set on fishing Lake Austin, give Charles Whited a call at Barefoot Fishing Tours (512-557-6772). He's been guiding in Central Texas (Lake Austin, LBJ, Travis, Bastrop, etc..) for years and he's a good friend of mine. He's a fantastic fisherman, even better person and will take care of you, I promise. Tell him Kyle sent you.


PM me for more details as there can be a bunch...

Worst guide I ever hired was Charles Whited.......I have been on trips with numerous guides and this was by far the worst experience I have had. Fished Town Lake for half day we caught 0 fish and dude just keeps making excuses and looking at his watch. He literally dropped us off on the bank at exactly 4 hrs. Not only did he act like he didn't want to be there he was talking trash about another guide I told him I had considered. It was so bad that my buddy was pissed at me for hiring him.
Never again.

Fish Tight,
John

I suggest chatting with all of them to see which one suits your needs instead of basing your pick on forum chatter...

Can you explain a little more about your experience?

I went with Brian back in March and he is a great guy. Like everyone said though it was brutal. No grass. Palaniuk did catch that 12 about 2 weeks after we were there but that doesn't really say how the fishing was just that he caught a 12. Although one DD would be enough for me.
