I usually see some carp anglers fishing under the IH-35 bridge. They are fishing during the nighttime hours! I have also seen carp anglers fishing by the kayak ramp at the end of the park. This is at Lady Bird Lake. thumb

I saw on the net that lake austin was supposed to be infested with Carps they released to take care of a grass problem. i looked on the satelitte and lake ladybird is down stream. Have they moved to that area .

The Carp that were stocked in Lake Austin are Grass Carp. Lady Bird Lake is one of the best Carp Fisheries in the United States. There are also some regulations on the carp caught on Lady Bird Lake, Would suggest that you read up on them. Texas Parks&Wildlife Web Site. Best of Luck. Hope you catch a few! cheers

Emma Long Metropolitan Park has lots of bank space suitable for carp fishing. I've seen people catch carp & buffalo almost everywhere in the park.

And, if you have time, Town Lake AKA Lady Bird Lake is worth exploring. Lots of suitable swims on that lake and there are some BIG fish in that lake.

I suggest you learn the difference between common carp, buffalo and grass carp. Grass carp are the culprits on Lake Austin, but you better check the rules and regulations as far as catching them

+1! Common Carp are considered naturalized, and buffalo are native. Grass carp are often stocked by the state to control weeds but in some waters are invasive. They all look and behave quite differently, and some have regulations so it pays to know the difference.


Catch and release. The dream - to catch one of every species of Freshwater fish in our great state! If only I can resist Carp...

You need to kill any grass carp out of Austin. Permit has expired.

Not entirely true, the permit has expired but you can either keep or release them. Sterile grass carp only live about 10 years anyhow, and the last stocking was 6 years ago
