Lake Buchanan and Inks Lake are two jewels in the chain of lakes known as the "Highland Lakes", tucked between the Bluebonnet Capital and the Deer Capital of Texas.
Lake Buchanan is big, wide, open, and uncrowded. Boat launching is currently available at Llano County Park, Cedar Point, Burnet County Park and many local lodges and resorts.
Inks Lake is smaller, sheltered in a canyon and cozy. Inks Lake launch is at Inks Lake State Park.
Fishing is great all year long!.

If you fish for Striped Bass, Hybrid "Sunshine" Striped Bass, Black Bass, White Bass, Crappie, Catfish (Blue, Channel and Flathead,) or Sunfish Lake Buchanan and Inks Lake are where you want to visit. We have had phenomenal fishing this Spring and it looks like it will only continue to get better. In 2017 the Lake Buchanan Conservation Corp with help from a Llano County Hotel Tax grant and Texas Parks and Wildlife stocked over 1,000,000 hybrid striped bass into the lake. The hybrids are a cross between a striped bass male and a white bass female resulting in the Sunshine strain of hybrids. With their help, Lake Buchanan has become one of the top three striper lakes in Texas! Click here for more info and fish pictures.
