Made my first ever fishing trip in Austin this morning, since relocating here, and wound up in the middle of Lake Austin (don't worry, I made it out ;) ).

First off, I blame the zero fish on it being 35 degrees and all the fish being in deeper waters. However, the drawdown seems to have made a mini-river system that I've pointed out in the last pic. This would be a sweet fly fishing spot had there been any fish to catch. It has made rapids which are almost entirely visable to the bottom, 1 to 4 feet down. Would also be a cool place to bring a Kayak through these rapids if you could brave the cold water (but prob not the safest thought, due to the rocks, but still a cool idea). Fished for about 1.5 hours and not soo much as a bite.

If anyone does go down under the 620 bridge again if you have a larger rig you might be able to cast close enough to the deep water at the base of the dam and get some of those LA Stripers.

Given that you were down there today do you think it is possible to reach that water (Rangers won't let you go back the 620 bridge)? Or has too much water already been drained?

I think you could definately make it to that location with the water at the current level. I just didnt go past the bridge because there were buoy's directly under it, and the "No Fishing" sign on the dam. Besides, I had already had 2 LCRA/GW trucks make passes down there looking at me, so I figured I would stop there. Plus with me taking pictures and all, I didn't want to end up as a homeland security detainee. Since I've heard after 9/11 authorities watch it close ;). It was hard to tell how deep the water was near the dam wall. At least a few feet I would think. I think it would be worth a try, if you're up for it.

ashdrewness ----- Hear are your pictures.

All you do is put this [ i m g ] in front of your pictures url,http://i91.photobucket.com/albums/k310/ashdrewness/DSC00658.jpg and put this in the back of it. [ / i m g ] I will have to space between each letter and symbol in order to show you how to do it with out it posting the picture, but you should be able to get the concept. You're very close.
