White bass are one of Texas’ most sought-after gamefish, especially when they make their annual spring spawning migration into rivers above reservoirs. To improve access for anglers targeting white bass, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) has signed a leased access agreement through June 30, 2017, with property owners at the Kingsland Slab RV Camp on the Llano River above Lake LBJ. The river is known for its excellent white bass runs, and March through early May is the prime time to target this species.


The leases provide anglers with free access from 30 minutes before daylight until 30 minutes after dusk. Anglers will be able to use the properties for bank fishing and launching non-motorized watercraft such as rafts, kayaks and canoes for the purpose of fishing. The leases were made possible with funding provided by the U.S. Department of Agriculture Voluntary Public Access and Habitat Incentive Program. 


For additional information and directions to this leased fishing access area and others throughout the state, including site-specific restrictions, visit http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/fishboat/fish/recreational/rivers/.
