Just wandering if anyone had been lately...bet it will be a goodern this year! I imagine it is still early, but the river looks good below 71!

I haven't been to Reimer's but I was at Perdernales Falls last weekend. Lots of clear flowing water! The river looks absolutely amazing right now. There should definitely be enough water for the whites to make it up to Reimer's this year.

Got a new river minner net if the jigs aint workin...I figure late February should be excellent fishing if we can get a good downpour. Last year I took the yak up a good way from Reimers "boat ramp" with mixed results. Saw plenty of whites caught right there by the put in.

Spot tailed minnows work from creeks work great at Reimers also. Caught a lot of whites on them through the years there.

That's it Sally! I always go by that saying...seems to be the most accurate biological indicator in my mind.

I'm new to Austin, and went out there yesterday for the first time on a reconnaissance trip for the white bass run. Used my fly rod. Nice place, but I didn't realize how much bigger the river is there than just a few miles upstream at Perdenales Falls State Park.

Water was cold and moving pretty well. The banks are deep and drop away significantly just a few steps from the shore. Practically impossible to wade unless you find a opportune rock sticking out. The river has to be running fairly high because there are lots of submerged trees and grass all around, so I will be interested to see if the level drops as spring approaches.

I went hoping to find some carp but didn't see any although I did see a couple of splashes which were likely carp. I managed a pull out a couple of small bass from classic spots, the first larger one from a drop off and a second tiny one hiding in some structure behind the giant rock on the river bank.




Given the size and depth of the river, I think to be really effective at fishing it, you'd need some sort of watercraft to cover all the water. Personally, I like the shallower and narrower water at the state park a little bit more than the wide open spaces at Reimer's.

That would be cool if the White Bass made it all the way up to the state park, but I think it's just too far for them to swim upstream. Maybe I'm wrong?

Some people swear by Reimer's, but I've never had much luck fishing there. I've had a lot better luck in the smaller creeks around Lake Somerville.

Thanks for the report!

My neighbor, whom is a GREAT white bass fisherman fishing with spot tail minnows, visited Reimers in his bass buggy this past Tuesday. He said the water is perfect out there. He told me that he fished all the way to the falls from the sand bar. but he also said he didn't have any luck with the sandies. But he thinks in a few more weeks, things might be different. he caught a few Black bass and crappie but didn't find the whites. Sounds like it may be a good one this year. can't wait.

Reimers should be great this year. This time of year I have found them holding in deeper water pockets, like twelve to fourteen feet. If you find a school, it can be very rewarding. The bite is sluggish, but set the hook and the fight is on. You really got a work at it this time of year though, it will not come easy.

I will be in Austin the weekend of the 17-19 of March for the tail end of SXSW. Would it be worth taking my gear and hitting Reimer's, or will it be pretty much done by then(white bass run)?

The run lasts a bit longer in the hill country so it should definitely still be going strong mid March. Probably into early April even. Should be a good year based on water levels. Maybe you can show me a pointer or two out there. I think the most I've ever caught out there is about 7 or 8.

Last year, the fly fishermen were slaying them right near the beach and kayak launch area. They would wade in and stand side by side. they would catch one white after an other. One person would get his limit and pull out of the water. they next guy would move over and get his limit. My wife and I would watch them but only catch a dozen or so (combined). I saw there were a lot of minnows in the river. So, I bought my wife a minnow trap. I showed her how to use it, and she began to catch her own river minnows. During the rest of that spawn last year, she proceeded to give me fishing lessons with them. She almost caught her limit a few times with those minnows. I loved it.

We take our little two seater pond boat with trolling motor there. The bank fishing is a little harder for us there than elsewhere only because the river is wider than most creeks. The fish almost always seem to be out of our reach. I noticed that we bank fishermen are trying to cast to the other side, and the boat fishermen are casting towards the banks. LOL.

Hope to see y'all out there soon. tight lines!
