The best fishing spots in the Hill Country

Posted by Vintage Oaks

Among numerous favorite Hill Country activities, fishing stands out as one of Texas residents’ and visitors’ top choices. The best Hill Country fishing spots are found throughout the area, from Canyon Lake to the Llano River.

Guadalupe River

When you land in the Hill Country, you’ll want to head to the Guadalupe for great flyfishing (not to mention some of the best tubing in the Texas Hill Country, plus rafting, canoeing, and kayaking).

Canyon Lake

Canyon Lake is a great place to drop a line, enjoy some of the Hill Country’s most scenic sights, and catch Rio Grande perch and Guadalupe bass. It’s also a haven for water sports in the Hill Country. For the best fishing, head to the area just below Canyon Lake Dam, where freshwater trout are stocked throughout the year and rainbow trout and brown during the fall and winter months.

Lake Buchanan

Just west of Burnet, Lake Buchanan is a favorite Hill Country fishing spot, stocked with largemouth bass, catfish, white bass, and striped bass. Boating is another popular activity on the lake.

Llano River

It doesn’t get much better than fly fishing on the Llano River. Here you’ll find abundant Guadalupe bass, largemouth bass, alligator gar, and sunfish. The South Llano River State Park is a favorite spot along the river.

Lake Marble Falls 

The 600-acre Lake Marble Falls is known for having a record number of striped bass, as well as  largemouth bass, catfish, and sunfish.

Inks Lake

You can rent a canoe or paddleboat to traverse Inks Lake, but the real draw when fishing in the Hill Country is the abundant bass, crappie and catfish.

Sabinal River

Head out to Los Maples Natural Area in Sabinal and you’ll also find a great array of largemouth bass, Guadalupe bass, and sunfish.

Blanco River

A trip to Blanco State Park can yield a great take of Guadalupe bass, sunfish, catfish, smallmouth bass, and Hill Country hybrid bass.
