trip description for Carp and Buffalo on the Fly in Austin

If you've ever wanted to nail big Carp on tiny dry flies, this trip is for you! Although when many fly anglers think "fly fishing", they're picturing Trout somewhere in the Rocky Mountains, Riley specializes in finding and hooking lowland species such as Carp and Bass. Catching a carp on the fly is hard at first, which is why your guide loves them, and he would love it even more if he could help you get on one yourself! When you go out with one of the guides to chase these feisty specimens you can expect to spend your day wading around lakes and river systems stalking your quarry stealthy and precisely. These fish are very aware of their surroundings, and you get no second chances. It’s either a perfect cast and presentation or the fish spooks, and often, the latter. When they do eat, however, you’re can bet your bottom dollar they're going to take you out to the backing! Certain times of the year, you can also target smallmouth buffalo on the fly, which grow even larger than carp, and are actually indigenous to Texas waters. Teaching trips are also welcomed for folks that have never held a fly rod. If this trip is more in line with your skill level, you can expect it to be more centered around the fundamentals, rather than finding and catching a fish, but it won't be too long before your out to the backing on a giant carp as well!

What is fishing in Brazos River all about?

The Brazos River, winding its way through the heart of Texas, offers anglers a wealth of fishing opportunities amidst its scenic beauty and diverse ecosystems. As one of the longest rivers in the state, the Brazos River provides habitats for a wide variety of fish species, making it a prime destination for freshwater fishing enthusiasts. From its headwaters near the panhandle to its mouth on the Gulf Coast, the Brazos River offers anglers the chance to reel in prized catches such as largemouth bass, catfish, crappie, and white bass.

One of the highlights of fishing in the Brazos River is the chance to explore its various sections, each offering its own unique angling experiences. In the upper reaches of the river, anglers can enjoy fishing in clear, rocky streams and riffles, targeting bass and sunfish amidst the rugged beauty of the Texas Hill Country. As the river flows downstream, it widens into larger pools and reservoirs, providing opportunities for both bank and boat fishing for a wider range of species.

In addition to its diverse fishing opportunities, the Brazos River also offers anglers the chance to enjoy the peaceful solitude of nature while pursuing their passion for angling. Whether casting from the shoreline, wading in the shallows, or floating downstream in a kayak or canoe, fishermen can immerse themselves in the tranquility of the river's surroundings and enjoy the thrill of hooking into some impressive catches. With its scenic beauty and abundant fish populations, the Brazos River is truly a haven for anglers seeking to escape the hustle and bustle of city life and reconnect with the great outdoors.

What are the most popular months to fish in Brazos River?

The Brazos River, coursing through the heart of Texas, offers anglers a diverse array of fishing seasons shaped by the changing rhythms of the year. Spring ushers in the prime fishing season as warming temperatures awaken aquatic life and trigger spawning activity among various fish species. Anglers eagerly anticipate the arrival of largemouth bass, catfish, and sunfish, which become more active and plentiful in the river's waters. Whether casting from the shoreline, drifting in a boat, or wading in the shallows, springtime along the Brazos River provides ample opportunities for anglers to test their skills and reel in some impressive catches.

As summer unfolds and temperatures rise, fishing along the Brazos River shifts focus to the cooler, deeper waters of its reservoirs and tributaries. Largemouth bass remain a popular target during this season, with anglers targeting them around submerged structure, rocky banks, and shaded areas using a variety of techniques such as topwater lures, crankbaits, and soft plastics. Additionally, the summer months present ideal conditions for targeting catfish, which become more active in the warm waters. Whether bank fishing, kayak angling, or navigating the expansive waters by boat, summer in the Brazos River offers anglers the chance to escape the heat and enjoy some quality time on the water while pursuing their favorite fish species.

As the year progresses and autumn approaches, fishing along the Brazos River enters a transitional phase characterized by changing water temperatures and shifting fish behavior. Cooler weather prompts fish to become more active, particularly in the shallows, where they feed voraciously in preparation for the colder months ahead. Crappie fishing, in particular, experiences a resurgence during the fall season, with anglers congregating around submerged brush piles and other structure to target these prized panfish. Whether seeking the thrill of a bass strike or the challenge of hooking into a feisty crappie, anglers along the Brazos River find themselves spoiled for choice as they navigate the changing seasons and diverse fishing opportunities that the river has to offer.

What types of fishing are popular in Brazos River?

The Brazos River, coursing through Texas, offers anglers a diverse range of fishing experiences reflective of its varied ecosystems. One prevalent method is bank fishing along the river's winding shores, where anglers can cast their lines from the comfort of the riverbanks. This approach allows for a leisurely day of angling, targeting species like bass, catfish, and sunfish that inhabit the river's shallows and deeper pools. Bank fishing provides an accessible and relaxing way to enjoy the scenic beauty of the Brazos River while trying one's luck at reeling in some impressive catches.

Another favored technique among anglers in the Brazos River is kayak fishing, which offers a more adventurous and immersive fishing experience. Kayak anglers can navigate the river's gentle currents and explore secluded fishing spots inaccessible by larger boats. This allows for a closer connection to nature and the opportunity to target a variety of fish species, including bass, catfish, and crappie, in their natural habitat. Kayak fishing on the Brazos River provides anglers with a sense of freedom and exploration as they glide silently across the water, enjoying the serenity of the river's surroundings.

For those seeking a more traditional fishing experience, fly fishing presents an exciting challenge on the Brazos River. Fly fishermen can test their skills against the river's resident bass and sunfish populations, casting delicate flies into the clear waters and enticing strikes from wary fish. With its scenic beauty and diverse aquatic ecosystems, the Brazos River offers a perfect backdrop for fly fishing enthusiasts to hone their craft and enjoy the thrill of hooking into some impressive catches amidst the tranquility of nature.

What species are popular in Brazos River?

The Brazos River, flowing through the heart of Texas, offers anglers a rich diversity of fish species to target throughout the year. Among the most prized catches are largemouth bass, known for their aggressive strikes and spirited fights. Anglers frequently target these iconic freshwater predators in the Brazos River's waters, particularly around submerged structure, rocky banks, and shaded areas. Whether casting from the shoreline, drifting in a boat, or wading in the shallows, anglers employ various techniques such as topwater lures, crankbaits, and soft plastics to entice strikes from these prized game fish.

Catfish are another popular species among anglers along the Brazos River, offering reliable action year-round. From channel catfish to blue catfish and flatheads, the river's waters are home to a diverse array of catfish species, each presenting its own unique angling challenges. Anglers often target catfish using a variety of baits such as chicken liver, stink bait, or cut bait, and employ tactics like bottom fishing or drift fishing to entice strikes. Whether bank fishing, kayak angling, or navigating the expansive waters by boat, anglers in the Brazos River enjoy the thrill of hooking into these hard-fighting bottom dwellers.

Sunfish, including species such as bluegill and redear sunfish, round out the trio of top fishing species in the Brazos River. These panfish provide endless entertainment and are a favorite target for families and beginners due to their abundance and willingness to bite. Anglers often target sunfish using light tackle and small baits such as worms, crickets, or small jigs, making them an accessible and enjoyable species to pursue for anglers of all ages and skill levels. Whether casting from the shore, kayak fishing, or fly fishing from a drift boat, anglers along the Brazos River relish the simple pleasure of hooking into these colorful and feisty fish species.

What are the best places to fish in Brazos River?

The Brazos River, winding its way through the heart of Texas, offers anglers a plethora of prime fishing spots along its banks. One standout location is Possum Kingdom Lake, a sprawling reservoir formed by the Brazos River that boasts excellent fishing opportunities year-round. Anglers flock to Possum Kingdom Lake to target a variety of species including largemouth bass, striped bass, catfish, and crappie. With its scenic beauty and diverse fishery, Possum Kingdom Lake is a popular destination for anglers seeking a memorable fishing experience along the Brazos River.

Another top fishing spot along the Brazos River is Lake Whitney, a renowned reservoir known for its crystal-clear waters and abundant fish populations.

Recent Reviews of Captain Experiences

  • ★★★★★
    110% book this guy if your ever in the Austin area. This guide knows his stuff. Myself and a couple of teenagers were on fish quick and the catching lasted the entire trip. He knows the spots and the baits. Complete professional when it comes to accommodating and encouraging guests. We fished Lady Bird Lake and easily caught 40 fish in a morning trip. Most of the fish were heavy, no dinks. Step out of a downtown high rise, onto a boat deck, at Lady Bird and slay them with this guy or hit a surrounding Austin area lake if that’s your thing.

    We had a great experience with Captain Kevin. He has a great rig, great personality and put us on enough Large Mouth to please me. I took my 10 year old son because he said he wanted to catch a large mouth. Kevin came through with an extra life jacket too (I forgot one for my son). One hiccup was we were going to meet at different lake but they closed it due to the horrible drought we are in. Kevin audibled and we meet at Lake Bastrop which was more convenient for me anyway. I would definitely recommend this easy to use app and would definitely hire Captain Kevin again. He had everything we needed and got us catching fish quickly. He is really good with kids too!

    My experience was wonderful with Captain Kevin! He texted a couple days before the trip to ask if we could head out earlier than our scheduled time due to the heat and go try to beat the weekend rush of recreational boaters. So I met him at the boat ramp, which was very easy to find, at 6:15 and we headed out. The first place we fished was where we caught the biggest fish, pictured below, in the first 20 minutes of fishing. Things were a little slow the rest of the day, but we caught probably around a dozen fish, targeting and catching a variety of different species. . Captain Kevin was extremely friendly, and knows more about fishing than just about anybody I’ve met. He knew I’m a beginner, and was very kind and patient in teaching me and explaining everything to me. We swapped stories, got to know each other, and had the most wonderful time. I would highly recommend fishing with Captain Kevin.

    Awesome trip. Captain Randy put us on fish all night. Super helpful. Anything we needed he was right there to help. Great time. See you again soon.

    Randy is a great guy, got me and my 9 year old on plenty of fish. Couldn’t recommend him enough!
