How are fishing conditions in Austin?

Austin Fishing Reports from Our Damn Good Guides. See more reports for Austin.

    Low water levels!! Very hot, and warm water... need to get out there early and late if your trying to get on some nice fish! With these low levels... means spookier fish, especially the carp. The sight casting as been second to none though. But, the difficulty has gone up immensely. Definitely need to being your A-game, patience, and a motivation to hook up with these elusive critters. The bite is there if you move about like Yoda. The cfs seems to be very low as well, so fish have been in pools here in central texas. But midday fishing is almost impossible right now.
