Is there any vegetation in the lake now?

From what I've heard it's very weedy!


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

Not like it was a couple of years ago, now kind of spotty and more slime than I remember, still fishing good though - especially if they are busting up the shad!

Showed up at Decker this morning. It's been years since I have been there. Nice weather but windier than I anticipated. I was surprised at the lack of boat trailers. There is some vegetation in this lake but not a whole lot. I tried fishing around what I think is called American Pondweed. I threw numerous lures in the 2 hours I was there but never got a bite. No schooling of anything. Decided that Decker was not working for me and went to Bastrop on the way home. Again, surprisingly small amount of boat trailers. Skies cleared up but still windy. Fished for FOUR hours without a bite. I guess on some days the fish just aren't going to cooperate.


Be safe,

Dude, are you sure you were at DECKER? I was there a month ago and it was full of hydrilla!! Also lot of reeds and lily pads. Did you fish both sides of the lake?? I can't imagine all that hydrilla is gone!!

I saw some pads up by the intake but did not fish them. Yes, there was some hydrilla. Just not as much as I would have expected for the Summer. I did not spend a whole bunch of time on the water today. Everything will be okay!

Next time you're headed up this way give me a couple of days heads up and I'll meet you somewhere. Either boat. Was all set to hit Travis this morning but tweaked my back pretty bad yesterday so I'm out for a few days. Did well on Decker last time out.
