Lake Buchanan Bass Fishing Guide

Professional guide Lee Benton has spent many hours on Central Texas Highland Lakes. Lake Buchanan is one of the more requested destinations of his clients. There’s a good reason for that. Lake Buchanan at certain times of the year is home to some of the finest and most diverse bass fishing in Central Texas, including large quantities of hybrid stripers, striped bass, white bass and of course our buddy the largemouth bass (black bass).

Lake Buchanan is located northwest of Austin in Llano and Burnet Counties. It has more than 22,000 acres of prime bass fishing grounds that offers quality bass fishing opportunities throughout most of the year. Lots of underwater structure, from steep cliffs and rocky banks to brush, trees and underwater mounds – creating great habitat for largemouth bass to spawn and tear up your line. Largemouth often gather and feed around areas of flooded vegetation which provides suitable cover for ambush feeding. Since the lake has recovered from the recent drought, there is no shortage of this habitat.

When To Plan Your Fishing Trip To Lake Buchanan

Spring and fall are the prime times to fish for largemouth on Lake Buchanan – or most other lakes, but bass can be targeted throughout most of the year. Your Lake Buchanan fishing guide uses a variety of tricks, lures and techniques to catch black bass, depending on multiple factors.

When largemouth bass are suspending over drop-offs and points, top water baits can be irresistible and cajole them to hit them on the surface. When the water is clearer during the spring months, sight fishing becomes one of the more exciting ways to target largemouth bass (also known as black bass).

During most of the year, you can also fish for stripers and hybrid stripers as they are very plentiful in Lake Buchanan. The Lake Buchanan Conservation Corp, an organization of local business, fishing guides and lake enthusiasts, have among other things, been stocking the lake (in addition the TPWD) for almost 9 years now and the fishing is super hot much of the time. If fishing for black bass turns slow on summer days, striped bass and hybrids can be caught in certain areas of the lake. Many times in large quantities thanks to the LBCC.

Most of the year, you can target several species of bass in a single fishing charter. Just ask your bass fishing guide about what’s been hot and biting, and your trip may be customized to catch whatever type of fish may be on your bucket list. You can enjoy either a full or a half-day charter, and there is a lot of areas on Lake Buchanan for you to fish and explore.
