New to Austin Area
Good morning guys! Just joined up and introducing myself. Grew up south of Houston on the coast, did a lot of saltwater fishing and some bass fishing but really getting into bass fishing now. Moved to Cedar Park two years ago but just starting to fish the area this summer. Picked up a Bonafide SS127 this past weekend and took it out to Brushy Creek. Slow day of fishing and only caught one but it was a nice 4 pounder using a Bandito Bug up against a stump close to the Parmer bridge. Looking forward to getting to know the area and learning how to kayak fish effectively. Looks like some great info on here!

watch out for water mocassins sunning in the trees over there. Kinda spooky.
when you were in Houston did you ever fish those St Augustine grass farms over north of Baytown. Had fun with that when I went to school.

Thanks for the heads up on the water moccasins, second person that has told me that about Brushy Creek. Will definitely keep an eye out.
Never heard of the grass farms there, most of the bass fishing we did down there was on two private lakes that my grandfather owned property on. Just recently did some fishing on some private lakes in Danbury and had a good time, caught around 10 total all between 2-3 pounds.
Let me know if you ever want to head out on Brushy Creek on the weekend, place seems to get a lot of pressure so the fish are a little picky but there are some nice ones in there. Caught a 5 pounder there about a month ago from the bank on a white chatter bait.

Welcome to the forum Ag. If you want to try something different take your kayak up out to Johnson City and fish the Pedernales around the Hwy 281 bridge.

Have been thinking about giving it a shot out there. We go out to Johnson City and Llano fairly regularly and have been curious if there is any good fishing out there but haven’t found much online about the area.

We have had some fun days out there. Not much is talked about on here about anything west of Lake Travis but there are some nice places to put a kayak in and fish.

Welcome! Lake Georgetown around the dam is worth checking out and not too far from you! I'd also encourage you to hit town lake as there's lots of fish and plenty of 5+ pounders in there.
Shoot me a pm if you have any questions!

BTW- when Berger sends you out to 'town lake' that really means 'Ladybird Lake.' It was renamed several years back and us locals still frequently call it 'Town Lake.' That can be confusing for newcomers trying to look it up on a map.

You also might try Lake Pflugerville. It's a small lake (180 acres) and is limited to boats with trolling motors or no motors, so it's a haven for kayakers. (Motor boats are allowed, but can only use their trolling motors.) Although it's pretty full of hydrilla right now.
Two other lakes to give a whirl are Lake Bastrop (900 acres) and Lake Decker (or Walter E. Long) (1269 acres), although they both have a 14" - 21" slot limit. Decker has had some good bass pulled out of it this year. Bastrop has been spotty at best this year.
There are some kayak groups that have tournaments in the area that you might want to hook up with. One of them is called KATS (https://fishkats.com/).
I maintain a bass fishing rotation. For details see http://fcs-texas.org/category/events/bassrotation/.
