Trip Description:

Day 1: The first meeting of the trip will be on the South Llano River just below the tubers area.  We’ll wadefish this area getting out casting skill honed, and practicing with various flies.  Meeting later at Isaak’s , time TDB.

Day 2:  Launch from KC-150, and float down to just above the state park.  We’ll use a livery service and meet up early.  More fishing time, less paddling.  Details to follow.

Day 3:  Bridge to bridge where the river crosses US 377.  This time somebody bring a GPS.  We paddled through way to fast on this stretch last year and missed some prime fishing.
