Spring Fishing in the Texas Hill Country
Located about 45 minutes from downtown Austin, Pedernales Falls State Park is a perfect location for a day of fishing without the need of a boat. The park's main fishing area is around the falls. I'v caught a few catfish and one bass in my two brief outings to the area. We are headed out bright and early for our first real fishing expedition. Hopefully it will be a good catch.
Our gear will be 2 medium spin rods, one light spin rod, and two Zebco's with stink bait for catfish. The hiking is spectacular and this fishing is not too bad if your goal is to bring home a few cats and maybe a small for lunch. The fishing is best when the river is rising so rain can be your friend here. Our bait will include platic worms, small jigs, top water bugs, and stink bait with sinkers. The two stink bait rods will be un-manned, leaving three rods for tossing the plastic. There bass sit in deep pockets in the upper pools, with a health catfish population at the foot of the falls.
Check back soon as we plan on making many fishing trips around the Texas Hill Country this season.
Visit Texas Hill Country
The Texas Hill Country starts in Austin and climbs into a scenic sportsman’s shargla heading up and to the west. The Colorado River winds down the canyon filled area, with 6 major dams starting from downtown Austin, and ending with Lake Buchanan in the North. Golf course resorts, world class hunting, hiking, and 6 beautiful lakes are just the tip of the ice burg. It’s the great outdoors, Texas style.
