    Shaffer and Turkey Bend Recreation Areas on Lake Travis Report

    I fished this afternoon(3-5pm) for a couple of hours, at Shaffer Bend Park..Along the south side of the park where the river gets real narrow. The water was moving thru there with a current. Caught and release several female white bass to 14"...The water was off color. Using white roadrunners and ultra Light gear.

    Drove to Turkey Bend to check it out, but did not fish.
    There was several fisherman camped at Turkey Bend Park. They had just got there last night, before the rains. They said catfishing, *using juglines, was on fire. They were running their jugs every 1.5 hours and catching big blue catfish... Turkey Bend is 10 miles East of Shafer Bend Park, off FM 1431. It costs $5.00 per car to enter.

    Nice park, but it is aways from my home just to fish for a couple hours, IMO.

    I will be posting pics soon, after I download them.

    Re: Shaffer and Turkey Bend Recreation Areas on Lake Travis Report

    Now that's an encouraging report. Were I in town this weekend, I would definitely head up there and partake of the white bass and catfish actions, or head up the Pedernales or Cow Creek for the same reasons. But I'll be doing family stuff instead. One must attempt to lead the balanced life, sometimes indicating that the children and wife are almost as important as fishing (but not ALL the time!). I'm looking forward to some good reports and pics! This should be an awesome catching weekend after this new water (rain) creates new current and stimulates the bite. Catch a limit for me!

    I'm assuming you were bank fishing.This sounds like a place I need to try. My bank fishing success thus far this year has been nothing to post about. Thanks for your report.

    I was bank fishing...I drove up there to check out these two places. I had never been. Turkey Bend park with have a RV park and Cabins to rent in another few months. Since LCRA has taken over, that park is starting to become a nice little get away. Only if we can keep the water in front of it...Come on rain!


    Man Robert, your all over the map.
    That is what the single life will do to ya....

    I will be in Southern California this weekend. Not certain what my friends have in-store for this weekend, but i will be back on Monday to talk about it..

    Robert
