About the lake:

Location: On the Colorado River northwest of Austin in Travis and Burnet counties with a surface area of 18,622 acres and a maximum depth of190 feet Impounded in 1942 Lake Travis is dominated by rocky banks, steep cliffs, and clear water typical of a highland reservoir. The water tends to become more stained as one moves up the lake, with some portions of the upper end more closely resembling a flatland-type impoundment. In the lower end of the reservoir, marinas, floating boat docks, rockpiles, ledges, and steep drop-offs provide cover for game fish. When the water is high, largemouth bass anglers should concentrate on the flooded terrestrial vegetation that lines the banks. The upper end of the reservoir will have more flooded vegetation. Many large creeks enter the lake and hold game fish year-round.

Current Junior Water Body Records (Rod and Reel)

Largemouth Bass (FAN Member) Trace Jansen caught Feb 28th, 2021 15.32 Pounds caught on a wacky rig

Guadalupe Bass, Brian Arabie caught Dec 23rd, 2015, 3.00 pounds on a Santone Jig

Captain Incentives (Must be present to win) Captains will be recognized with the Academy Captains Awards including a $50 Academy gift card for the winning Captain and another $50 Academy gift card in a random Captains drawing.
