Lake Brownwood Fishing Guides, Boat Rentals & More

Planning a getaway to one of the best fishing lakes in Texas?

Lake Brownwood offers fantastic year-round fishing where you can cast your line for white bass, Florida largemouth bass, crappie, sunfish, freshwater drum, and catfish. Featured on Sweetwater Fishing TV, Lake Brownwood offers an epic fishing experience.  Make the most of your time at one of Hill Country’s most gorgeous lakes with these three essential insider tips. 

Lake Brownwood Fishing Guides

It’s easy to rent a boat and drop a line in the middle of Lake Brownwood or head to a cove or creek surrounding the lake to fish. But going with a guide can take the guesswork out of finding where the fish are during any given time of year. Visit all the secret spots to fish with local Jason Cotton who owns Fishing Addiction Guide Service in May, Texas. Most of his business comes from word-of-mouth, but you can find him at Fishing Addiction on Facebook.

Box R Outfitters, based in Cross Plains, Texas, offers a four-hour guided fishing trip on Lake Brownwood. You’ll board a pontoon boat on this Lake Brownwood fishing excursion. Your guided experience includes fish cleaning, but be sure to pack your own drinks and snacks. 

Best Boat Rentals at Lake Brownwood 

For fishing enthusiasts looking to reel in fish from the middle of the lake, head to Wild Duck Marina to rent a 22-foot or 25-foot tritoon boat. After a day out on the shimmering water, enjoy a cold beer, burgers, and pizza on the marina’s outdoor deck. On the weekends, there’s live music. You’ll also find an indoor sports bar and Crappie Dock here, the only indoor fishing dock on Lake Brownwood. 

If you’re looking for fishing and fun for the whole family, Lake Brownwood Boat Rentals offers everything from pontoon boats, jet skis and ski boats, plus tubes and kneeboards for the thrillseekers on board. With a focus on fun and safety, the staff are friendly and boats are clean. 

Ultimate Bait & Rod Shops Near Lake Brownwood

Stock up on live bait and fishing tackle at Big Bass Hooker Tackle Shop in Brownwood. This family-owned shop has the largest inventory of live bait and fishing tackle and also sells a variety of fishing rods, reels, tackle boxes, fish scales, and more. Or head to Jack’s Place located on State Highway Park Road 15 just west of the lake. Jack’s sells bait, as well as beer and groceries. It’s a great place to pick up a few snacks or beverages before you get to the lake. If you’re looking for a loaner rod, The Hideout Golf Club & Resort right on Lake Brownwood has limited on-site rods available for use.
