    Good fishing spots for kids in/near Austin?

    Hello everyone!
    I just joined up and wanted to see if you all knew of any good spots to take little kids fishing. *I have a 2 1/2 year old who I am introducing to fishing. *We fished the base of Mansfield dam a couple of weeks ago and he loved it. *

    Anyone know of places that have a dock or spots to fish from the shore line, coves, etc...? *I did a quick search of the forums but didn't find anything relevant.

    I will do some more digging in here but let me know if you have some ideas.

    Thanks!

    - Jeff

    I use to take my kids to any of the local community ponds. These ponds are normally in parks with playgrounds and ducks to feed...

    Look at this link and locate the county you want to fish in...There are a lot in both Travis and Williamson counties. Probably within a few miles of your home.

    Try my neighborhood lake, Pflugerville Lake. Filled with Sunfish amongst other species, but for kids, its hard to beat the action of the Bluegills out there. Lake was impounded in 2005, so there are some nice ones in there, but I can catch alot of small ones on almost anything. I used left over french fries from McD's the last time I needed some bait for the channel catfish. *;D
    It has four fishing piers, a beach area on the north side, just in case the kids need cooling off after standing in the sun too long and *a jon boat ramp was recently added as well. No gas engines allowed, paddle or trolling motors only. We expect parks and recreation to open a boat rental kiosk next summer. *Always plenty of familys enjoying the area; swimming, biking, fishing or jogging.

    I don't have much luck catching black bass over there except catfish. It's a good area for walking, jogging, swimming area for kids and fishing... i guess. lol

    I took my son to Northwest park off of Shoal Creek. *Caught several small fish and had a blast!

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    Apparently you have to post at least 5 times before you can post pictures. This is post 4.

    That looks like fun! I have to drag my daughter away from fishing now and it all started like that! It's a great excuse to go fishing AND you get a great fishing partner!
