A friend and I are planning our first trip to the Llano river in a few weeks. We are considering dropping in at the Highway 87 crossing and fishing the 12 miles down to Castell. Do you think this is too far for one full day? Like I said earlier this is our first time down there so any tips you are willing to let go of would be greatly appreciated.

I can tell you 12 miles and trying to fish is tough. We have done a trip that was 11 and didn't get to fish the last 4 because we had to meet our shuttle on LMF. The other trip was Whitney Dam to Dick's, which is about 10 miles and it was a fishing tournament; again, we were cruising pretty good and fishing here and there along the way.

Just my $0.02 smile

Thank you very much! I'll explore a few other options. We want to be doing more fishing that paddling.

You can camp on that stretch of Llano; might consider breaking it up into two 6 mile days! smile

It also kind of depends when you plan on doing it, wait another month or so, you will have a lot of day light.

12 miles is way to far to fish and paddle in one day. I'd look for something in the 4-6 mile range if you want to fish it effectively.

Thats a long stretch with some long portages. 102 to llano proper can be fun.

Is there a place to drop in between highway 87 and castell that would still allow 4 to 6 miles?

Just looked at Google earth. There is a 6.2 mile section between crossing upstream from Hwy 87 starting in Mason.
