Lake Travis Bass Fishing Guide

Professional bass fishing guide Lee Benton has spent a lot of time on many of the Central Texas Highland Lakes, but Lake Travis is by far the most popular destination of his clients. There is a good reason. Lake Travis boasts some of the best, most diverse fishing in all of Central Texas, including large quantities of largemouth and the famed native Guadalupe bass.

Lake Travis is located northwest of Austin in Travis and Burnet Counties. It’s more than 18,000 acres of prime fishing grounds offers quality angling opportunities throughout the year. Plenty of underwater structure, like steep cliffs and rocky banks, create perfect habitat for largemouth bass to spawn. Largemouth often gather around areas where flooded vegetation provides suitable cover for feeding.

When To Plan Your Fishing Trip To Lake Travis

Spring and fall is the best time for fish for largemouth on Lake Travis, but can be targeted throughout the year. Your Lake Travis fishing guide will use a variety of techniques to catch largemouth, depending on a number of factors.

When largemouth are suspended over points and drop-offs, topwater baits can lure them to strike on the surface. When the water is clear during the spring months, sight fishing becomes one of the most exciting ways to target largemouth bass (also known as black bass).

During late winter and spring, it’s possible to fish for white bass as they run into major creek tributaries to spawn. If fishing for largemouth turns sluggish on hot summer days, striped bass can be caught in certain areas on the lake.

Guadalupe bass can also be targeted throughout the year. We typically find these fish in moving water, as they are a species native to the Colorado River but they are pretty much everywhere in Lake Travis.

When possible, you can target multiple species of bass on a single fishing charter. Just ask your fishing guide about what’s been biting, and your trip can be customized to catch whatever fish is on your bucket list. You can enjoy a full or half-day charter, and there is a lot of area on Lake Travis to explore.
