Loc: Plano
I'm exploring the possibility of doing a trip to the Llano and I've never been before. I'd like to find a place to setup base camp somewhere (cabins or something) and then do day trips up/down the river. Any suggestions on stretches of the river for optimal fishing, places to stay, etc?

Anywhere up river of Yates Crossing (south South LLano River, Junction, etc) or around Castell would be a great starting point. Downriver of Yates Crossing is OK for a few miles, but a float from Yates to Whites Crossing is not recommended.

Agree with Castell. The guy that owns the general store there (he basically owns the whole little town) does trips or take-out service for kayaks, which is more limited than what you had in mind.

I have probably wade fished the Llano 30+ times over the years, but never kayaked it. Any of the low water crossings south of Mason are productive in the deeper holes. 80% of the time I would use small crawfish colored crank baits (Rebel Wee Craw is excellent on the river). Rest of the time, would use in-line spinners. You can find very nice Guadalupe bass (with occasional LMB) in the deeper holes. Always retrieve with the flow.

Hope that helps.
