Conveniently located right outside of Austin, the Colorado River offers some of the best trophy bass fly fishing Texas has to offer. Target species are Largemouth and Guadalupe bass, but many other species including big catfish are caught frequently on a fly. Warm days in winter can be good, but prime time is spring, early summer and fall. When the Colorado is fishing well, as it frequently is, fly fishers can have 20-40+ fish days with chances at monster largemouths (5-10lbs). We offer guide trips year round on the Colorado. We mainly use a skiff set up for fly fishing with a jet outboard to cover water (see it HERE). Most of the access on the Colorado remain within an hour drive of Austin, Lady Bird Lake (Town Lake) is also an option for some fishing in the city limits. Surface flies can be very productive, with clear water you can watch bass materialize from the depths with bad intentions for our flies. One of the coolest things in fly fishing! Low fishing and recreation traffic leave the river to just us most days. Low fishing pressure leaves bass that routinely behave the way ambush predators are supposed to. Call or email to ask about float trips on the Colorado.
