Lake Travis

Travis is a 18,622 acres lake just west of Austin, TX.  Over the last decade, the lake has experienced drought and flood periods.  During the last drought, there was a lot of tree and bush growth in the lake.  Once the lake refilled, the submerged brush has provided great habitat for forage and game fish. In addition, Texas Parks and Wildlife has stocked the lake during the last two years. If you live in Austin, It's a great time to fish Lake Travis.

Had a great time with John, very patient and hard working individual. He took us to the right spots to get away from traffic. The lures we were using were right on and caught over 20 bass.

Had a great day on Lake Travis with John. I would highly recommend anyone booking a trip with Lago Fishing Guide. He knew what the fish were doing and put us on them right away. I felt like I was just hanging out and fishing with someone I had known all my life. If we ever come this way again will be booking another trip for sure.

Went out with John and it was a wonderful experience.
John’s knowledge of the lake is amazing and went out of his way to let us fish for the big ones. Will definitely visit again.

Recent Fishing Report


May 2019

After continued cool and rainy weather, the heat is on!  Bass are still feeding up on shad and the shad are still spawning as we witness shad spawning this morning, (19th).  There were a lot of fat bass caught this month which is good news for the future of the lake.  Numbers of fish caught were up to 20-30 depending on conditions with the largest around 3 lbs.  Topwaters, flukes, A-rigs, crankbaits, spoons, and Texas rig plastics worked well with fish caught from the surface to 30' feet of water.  The lake is at full pool in May and current surface water temps are mid to high 70's.  The water clarity is 8-10' at main to 3-4' at mid-lake.   There was still quite abit of debris at the confluence of the Pedernales and Colorado early this week.  Be safe out there and enjoy a full lake.
