Return to Lady Bird Lake fishing page

Good bank access is available at Auditorium Shores and Festival Beach Park. Shoreline access is also available at Red Bud Island in the upper end of the reservoir near Tom Miller Dam. The Austin hike and bike trail circles almost the entire lower two thirds of the reservoir offering access to the bank. Unimproved boat ramps are located on the north shore at Festival Beach and behind the Holiday Inn Hotel west of I-35. One additional ramp for boats that can be carried is located across Stephen F. Austin Street from Austin High School.
