Lake Austin Sportsman's Association
Is there any interest in starting this organization? If so, post up.
1. Provide a singular, united voice for fisherman and outdoor enthusiasts to the LCRA, TPWD, Travis County, and the City of Austin on matters pertaining to the management of Lake Austin.
2. Work with other special interest groups who are attempting to influence the decisions of the LCRA and TPWD.
3. Highlight the unique and special sporting opportunities that Lake Austin provides.
4. Facilitate conservation projects on Lake Austin.
Questions I have:
1. What would you pay (annually) to be a member and what would you expect in return (sticker, newsletter, etc.)? $25? $40? $50?
2. Would you attend a fundraiser banquet (like Ducks Unlimited or CCA)?
3. What would your expectations be of LASA?
Thanks for your input.

Andrew, not tryimg to rain on your parade, it has been tryed in the early 90's. Ray Scott, Alton Jones, Clark Winlett, were part of it. bottom line the HOA out spent us. Guess who won??????????????????????IF YOU CAN'T STAND BEHIND OUR TROOPS, STAND IN FRONT THEM. PROUD ARMY DAD & UNCLE
What this country needs is a department of common sense.

No rain at all. Others in the grass carp thread talked about banding together. I started this thread to facilitate that discussion. While I will certainly participate and brainstorm, due to other commitments I can not be the main person running this show.

I would pay $100-250 annually, I would attend a banquet, I would expect the organization to try and work with TPWD to manage the fishery to its fullest potential, including exploring options for rainbow trout stocking in Lake Austin. I would also like to see the organization attempt to get the ban on bowfishing grass carp from Lake Austin lifted. I would like to see the organization attempt to work with the LCRA and get some fish habitat (like in Buch and Georgetown) placed on the lower end of the lake. I don't think anyone wants me running any shows.

Good idea Andrew. I'd pay an annual fee and support fund raisers, and I don't even fish LA or for LMB often. It's the principle. We shouldn't let a special interest group destroy an ecosystem owned by all of us, even if the river's banks are mostly private. The water is owned by the state and its residents. The management of the ecosystem should be based on science, not on who can buy their will, or the might makes right principle.
There is another thread for LASA with a sign up link:
