Trip Description: Kayak/Canoe trip.

We will fish Lake Bastrop on Fri and Sat.  I have reserved three tent campsites.  All three of the tent campsites will have LCRA tents with cots.   (six tents with twelve cots total)  There is additional space on the campsites for those with their own tents or tent cots.  My plan is to fish in the morning/afternoon on both Fri and Sat…explore the whole lake.  If you are not interested in camping overnight, come and join us for Fri or Sat.  Meet at the Northshore Park boat ramp at 630 am both days.

The plan will be to have a pot luck on Friday.  Bring a side dish.  Breakfast Sat on your own.  The total cost will be appx $20 person for the night plus $5 entrance fee at the park gate.

Please sign-up per the below, either via phone call to John Eldred or the Evite link.  I will collect the $20 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: $5 payable to the park upon entrance, plus $20 to cover campsite costs.
