Lake Austin is located on the Colorado River just below the Mansfield Dam on Lake Travis. Aside from the scenic hill-country views, and extremely impressive real estate, Lake Austin is among the top bass lakes in Texas for entries to the Sharelunker program, which accepts fish caught over thirteen pounds.
The current lake record is over sixteen pounds. If you happen to be visiting from out of the local area, and plan on incorporating some of the local fare, you are definitely not out "in the sticks". Austin is considered the "live music capital of the world", and you will definitely not have a problem finding something to do. The pulse of this thriving town never stops.
First time visitors to Lake Austin are quickly taken by its natural beauty. This is surely a trophy destination where an angler can catch the fish of a lifetime!
