The Llano River begins as two spring fed tributaries, The North and South Llano Rivers, which converge in the town of Junction to form the Llano River. It carves through the Llano Uplift, a geologic dome of granite Precambrian rock, giving it a character all its own. Scenic bluffs and clear, spring fed water, provide an amazing backdrop for some of the best fly-fishing opportunities in the Hill Country.
The Llano is home to the state fish of Texas, the Guadalupe Bass, which is endemic to the Texas Hill Country. Well-placed grasshopper, crawfish and baitfish patterns often end up engulfed by feisty Guadalupe Bass.
Largemouth bass are also present in good numbers. Other species include Rio Grande Cichlid, various Sunfish, Channel Catfish, Spotted and Longnose Gar, Carp and Freshwater Drum. During the late winter and early spring, the Llano River is also home to one of the best White Bass runs in the state.
The Llano fishes well March-November. We float sections near the towns of Junction (South Llano River), Mason and Llano. Floats typically last about 8 hours. Equipment, flies, lunch, non-alcoholic drinks and instruction are all provided.
