Water temps: 54-55 back of creeks up to 62.

Visibility Clear 6-8' from dam to Pace Bend. >10' deep water coves.

Water Level: 22 low

We arrived at Lake Travis just before noon after church, paid the $20 (gulp) and launched from ramp 3 at Jonestown. Ramps1&2 are closed due to water level. Air temps warmed up to upper 60's and we were treated to mostly clear skies and winds NE 10. I talked to another angler at the ramp as we were pulling in and he told me he was tossing in the towel setting my expectation low. We headed out opting to skip the main lake and leisurely made our way up to Tournament Point. This was the first time my wife has been on the lake on a boat so I was glad we enjoyed a mostly wake free ride. We had a few bites around Pace Bend but didn't get any landed and decided to head up river to find dirtier water. Pedernales didn't yield any fish so we headed up to the Narrows to scout. I landed one on a spinner but the wind picked up and really messed up the approach so we headed back to fish a couple of creek arms. We were rewarded with a few keepers flipping docks. I only saw one bed the entire afternoon but hopefully that's a good sign the main migration should be happening soon.

Thanks for the Travis report. I missed last spring out there last year but the bite was fantastic in pace bend area from February through May in 2019. I will be back out in next couple of weeks.

Glad you got some fishing time in. It has been awhile since I have fished Travis. Hopefully I can make it back this year. thumb

Much obliged for the report; I don't see many Travis reports on this forum. I fish the area from Briarcliff up to the Pedernales. Just got my boat back from the shop after Big Freeze damage to an aerator hose, and I hope to check out the fishing next week. Spring of 2020 was the best fishing I've ever had on Travis. Hoping for good fishing this spring, but unsure how the lower water level will affect things.

I would think that about 1% of the posts on TFF everyday are Fishing Reports. I guess I can understand why, too. Joe Fisherman has a kick butt day on such-n-such lake and the next day, the parking lot is full.
