    Never fished town lake, but have fished below the dam all the way down the river to Bastrop. I have used a 14 foot jon boat with a 15 horse motor for the most part. The gates need to be open to have enough water for my boat most of the time till you get past high way 183 bridge. I fish the holes and snags and mainly for whatever wants to bite for that day. Sometimes its cats, and sometimes its perch or bass. I've never had a bad day where I caught nothing. Let me know how you did on Town Lake. Catfishjon

    town lake, which i think is now called lady bird johnson lake, but i aint sure about that, is known for monster bass and large carp, in town lake gas powered motors aint legal, but its small enough to rent a canoe snd fidh, good luck, theres been some monsters pulled outa there.
