A Professional Bass Fishing Guide in Texas

Hill Country Bass Fishing

The Texas Hill Country offers some of the best bass fishing in the country to the local or visiting outdoorsman.  As a full-time professional bass fishing guide, Ray will guide you on the lake that is fishing the best in the Austin area to ensure you have the bass fishing trip of a lifetime.  Ray will tailor each trip to your needs and will provide all the gear required for your day on the water.  Whether you are a beginner who wants to catch fish or learn how to fish, or an experienced angler who wants to “up his game,” Ray will ensure your goals are met.  Here are some of the lakes that Ray guides on:

  • Lake Travis – If you want to have the opportunity to catch a lot of bass, this is the lake you want to go to.  While it’s better known for quantity, this lake can surprise you with a Texas trophy bass!

  • Lake Austin – Just downstream from Lake Travis, this lake is considerably shallower than Lake Travis and has a good population of largemouth bass.  Before the city introduced Asian Grass Carp, this lake was one of the best trophy bass lakes in the country, however since carp were introduced, the fishery has really suffered.  As such, I usually recommend one of our other great lakes in the area.

  • Lake Bastrop –This power plant cooling reservoir 45 minutes southeast of Austin offers a high density population of largemouth bass.  While not known for producing a lot of trophies, it is common for this grass-filled lake to produce good catches of 2-5 lb. bass.

  • Ladybird Lake – Nestled right in the middle of downtown Austin, this small, scenic reservoir offers some of the best urban bass fishing in the Austin area.  This lake fishes shallow and is known for its quality rather than quantity.  A 20lb limit of bass is a common occurrence on this lake.

  • Walter E. Long – Just a few miles from Austin International Airport, this small power plant cooling reservoir offers excellent fall and wintertime fishing; due to its year-round warm water temperatures.  The lakes shoreline is littered with bulrush and is a frog-fisherman’s dream!
