Re: Texas Natives
Hello Timothy. I have been here in Austin for 5 years. Although I haven't
collected native fishes, I have looked around some. Probably the best and
closest location is Bull Creek just off COT(Highway 360). About halfway
between Reasearch and Ben White is Bull Creel. There is a good expanse of
wading and several shallow to deep pools that offer quite a number of small
fish including sunfish, bass and other native minnows. Good luck.
