Good Afternoon,
I have been convinced to take a couple people fishing down on the Lower Colorado (I am the boat owner). Weather is looking solid and I am excited for a fun little trip. We will be down by webberville. Just reaching out to the forum experts for any helpful tips/suggestions. 'What works well down there,' What to avoid, etc ---- any information would be very helpful as I have never been on that part of the river.

Thank you in advance.

You have a jet outboard? That's some skinny water in places

Kayaked the Colorado in that area. Many lures work. Worms, small crankbaits, small top waters, frogs, buzzbaits....but the best river lure I have ever found from fishing rivers all over Texas, Ok and Arkansas? 4โ€ Curley tailed grub on a 3/16-1/4 oz jig head will catch more fish than any lure. Any color......as long as itโ€™s chartreuse!

I have an outboard. If theres any spots to really avoid - I will take that knowledge to heart.


Thank you

You are going to have a hard time with an outboard. You really need a jet or put in a kayak and float down. I put in at Little Weberville in my jet boat and run up to 130 usually. 1/2 ounce jigs work really well with 30 pound braid. Lots of laydowns and a lot of current. Fishing can be outstanding because it is not easy to access. And it is a heck of a lot of fun.

I think you can run an outboard down around Bastrop?
