Llano River Access Points, Places to Stay and Eat

Click here for a current Llano River Fishing Report

The Llano River is one of the Gems of the Texas Hill Country.  It offers very good warm water fishing for Guadalupe Bass, Largemounth Bass, Rio Grande Cichlids, sunfish and other species along a river that is least spoiled by development in the Hill Country.  Anglers can catch fish on the Llano throughout the year but the best fishing times on the Llano are mid-April through June and October and November.

The South Llano River begins to the west of the town of Junction and flows to the east, joining with the North Llano River in Junction to for the Llano River, proper.  Anglers have a number of places to stay and access points along the 100 mile reach of the Llano River.  For those wanting to get away from the crowds of the Guadalupe or San Marcos, the Llano River is one of the best choices in all of Texas.

A number of access points are good for wade fishing, but the river is best fished by kayak, canoe or raft, where anglers are able to cover a lot of water in a day, experiencing the diversity of wildlife, geology and vistas.  For fishing the Llano, 4-6 weight rods are preferred with 2x-3x tippet, various streamers, hoppers and poppers.

The map below gives the public access points along the river, along with some of the better places to stay, eat and obtain kayak rentals and/or shuttle services.
