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!.

Whether you fish for Striped Bass, Hybrid Striped Bass, Black Bass, White Bass, Crappie, or Catfish, Lake Buchanan and Inks Lake is where it's at! We have had phenomenal fishing for the last year and a half and it looks like it will only continue to get better! Last year the Lake Buchanan Conservation Corp with the help from Llano County Hotel Motel Tax Grant and Texas Parks and Wildlife, stocked over 1,500,000 hybrid striped bass into the lake! Yes, over one and a half million fish! They stocked one million hybrid fry again May 11, 2015. With their help, Lake Buchanan has become one of the top three striper lakes in Texas!
