Trip Description: Kayak/Canoe trip.

We will fish Lake Bastrop on Fri, Sat, and possibly Sun morning.  I have reserved one airstream trailer (Lady Bird #60) at Lake Bastrop North Shore Park for Fri and Sat nights.  (Sept 28-29)  My plan fish in the morning/afternoon on both Fri and Sat (and possibly Sun morning)….explore the whole lake.  If you are not interested in camping overnight, come and join us for Fri or Sat for the day.  Meet at the Northshore Park boat ramp at 630am both days.

I have rented one of the campground “Airstream” trailers for Fri and Sat nights.  (Blue Lacy)  The trailer has two queen beds, and can accommodate four (4) people.

The total (two day) cost for a spot in the trailer is $125.   We will “share” dinner duties (most likely pot luck style), and leave breakfast and lunch up to the individuals.

Please sign-up per the below, either via phone call to John Eldred or the Evite link.  I will collect the $125 at the time you sign up (or as close as possible).

Several of us made a day trip to Lake Bastrop earlier this year, and the lake is very fishable via kayak, canoe, or boat.  All are welcome.

Cost: $7 payable to the park upon entrance, plus $125 to me if plan to stay in the trailers.
