Trip Description: See below...


Day 1: The first meeting of the trip will be on the South Llano River just below the tubers area  at Morgan Shady Park   Directions.  We’ll wadefish this area getting our 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 (SOUTH LLANO RIVER CANOES & KAYAKS: Curtis Thomas, Located 6 miles south of Junction off Highway 377 on the South Llano River) and meet up early.  More fishing time, less paddling.  Direction from Junction to meet-up point for Livery

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

Has anybody ever stayed at the South Llano River Lodge?

We have time to make reservations if there is enough interest.

This would also put us on a different float plan than last year.

Thoughts?
