After one of the coldest winters that Texas has seen in a long time, we’ll happily greet the warmer weather that’s just around the corner! But the question arises: Are you prepared? Let’s get you geared up and ready to get out on Lake LBJ this spring! Here are a few things you’ll need:

Layered Clothing

Throughout the spring, the weather tends to stay pretty unpredictable. This is why it’s wise to layer your clothing between seasons. The mornings and evenings could still be chilly, so bring a light jacket, or a shirt you can remove easily. You can always wear your swimsuit underneath!

Plenty of Fresh Water

No, you can’t just drink the lake water! Be sure to bring plenty of cold water bottles with you and to stay hydrated! Staying hydrated should be your number one concern on a warm, sunny day!

Refreshing Snacks

Watermelon, cantaloupe, grapes, apples, anyone? When it’s warm outside, you’re going to crave cool, refreshing snacks! So pack lots of fruit with you, or maybe a veggie tray for everyone to share.

Your Swimsuit

Ready to cannon ball into that chilly water? Don’t forget to bring your swimsuit when you go boating out on the lake! A towel and wet bag, of course, are important too, as well as a change of clothes.


No matter what temperature it is outside, it’s important to wear sunscreen! So even if the temperature is coasting in the low 70’s and you’re feeling quite comfy, that sun’s UV rays could blister your skin like no tomorrow! Come prepared, always.

Well friends, we hope these tips have helped to jog your memory as you bring that boat out of storage, clean it up, and take it out on the water! Don’t forget your best boat shoes, either. But above all, have a great time out there on Lake LBJ this spring!
