    I have some friends that fish the upper end of travis. They fish in or near the Jackson Bottom LCRA park. There is a deep hole below the fault that croses the lake. They catch some nice fish there. They bank fish some in the winter time. Have not been with them but it has been on my to do list. Not very detailed but I hope this helps.

    I fish Choke Canyon November to June. Then come home and fish Buchanan mostly and Inks a little thru the summer. Since the ramp at the dam closed we mostly fish the upper end and up the river to the State Park. The level is getting low enough that you might not be able to get up to Fall Creek. To fish the river we go up and put in at the State Park. Prospects are looking kind of grim this year. We may still get our 4 th of July flood though.

    I fish off a dock right near the Lakeway marina. Fishing is average at best. My niece caught a really nice crappie last year from the dock and I usually catch a couple of 1-2 lb per hour.
