Kayak fishing the Lone Star State...

I have done 969 to Bastrop (~14 miles) overnight I think 5 times. It is a favorite weekend trip of mine and has decent fishing, one big island half way between launch and takeout. I have done two nights three days from Bastrop to Smithville (~25 miles) once. It was good fishing as well and there are two islands great for camping. I guess it depends how many miles you want to paddle each day. I like about 7-9 with today's normal flows on the colorado, gives me plenty of time to go as slow as I want and fish a lot. I've read trip reports where people do like 25 in a day. I don't know why you would do that but people do. There is also Plum Park on the Colorado about halfway between Smithville and La Grange.

Just did a 2 nighter from Smithville to LaGrange. It was beautiful, great bass fishing. Couldn't find my luck on the cats, but had lots of reports of major catfishing.

Here's a 42 sec video of my trip.
