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.
