Well me and lil'E just got back from our trip to Fredricksburg. We partook of much fishing, beer and German-ness.
We headed out on Friday the 2nd and arrived in Johnson city around noon. After getting our bearings we headed to Perdernals Falls State Park. We both agree this is one of the best Texas State Parks. It is beautiful, the fishing is good, and it is easy to find.
Emalie says "thars fish over thar!"
and she was right!
Most of the Bass were around this size
These small Bass behaved more like trout, darting among the rocks and in and out of the current.
A foul-hooked Blue Gill, Sorry Buddy!
Emalie was the first one of us to catch a Rio Grande Cichlid!
Down by the swimming area we did some wading.
All in all Perdernales Falls was a great trip. We ended up with 25 fish total, mostly Bass and Long Ears. I think it would be better in the spring when the fish are on their beds. One thing that we noticed was that there is a preponderance of Carp. We are talking many hundreds in giant schools. While there we also spotted a Black or Small mouth Buffalo, it was hard to tell which from the vantage point. We also spotted a few White Bass in the deeper parts of the current.
Stay tuned for the Llano River
