Angling Opportunities

Abundant angling opportunities exist in this segment of the South Llano River for Largemouth and Guadalupe Bass and Channel Catfish. The South Llano River is part of an initiative to restore Guadalupe Bass populations. Fishing for black basses is best when turbidity in the river is low, as these species feed primarily by sight. Anglers should target faster riffle areas for Guadalupe Bass, and downed trees and aquatic vegetation in pool habitat for Largemouth Bass.

Anglers are urged to practice catch-and-release of sportfish in this segment of the South Llano River, especially for Largemouth and Guadalupe Bass.

Fishing Regulations

All species are currently managed under statewide regulations.
