Cast your stress away and take a relaxing fishing trip to Round Rock, Texas! It’s common to see locals and visitors lining the water banks with a rod and reel in their hands. Round Rock is home to several freshwater fishing spots filled with bass, catfish, panfish, and more. Pack a cooler and fishing gear and head to the water for a perfect day of fishing!
In Round Rock, we have Meadow Lake, Bright Lake, and Brushy Creek stocked with fish for you to catch. Meadow Lake is a 59-acre lake located by Meadow Lake Park. Largemouth bass and bluegill populations swim through this lake, and it is routinely stocked with channel catfish by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. Boats without onboard motors are permitted on Meadow Lake, and there are beautiful shoreline trails to walk along. Another popular fishing spot is Bright Lake, located in Old Settlers Park. Bright Lake has excellent bank access and is a fantastic spot to catch catfish, largemouth bass, and rainbow trout. Old Settlers Park includes shore access to Bright Lake and a fishing pier for guests to use. Finally, we have Brushy Creek that runs through the heart of our city. Brushy Creek is home to sunfish, rainbow trout, and even the rare Guadalupe bass. It’s the ideal spot for fly fishing and fishing by the banks.
If you need to stock up on gear for your fishing trip, stop by the Bass Pro Shops for items like tackle boxes, lures, fishing rods, and even boats. If you want to fly fish on Brushy Creek we have the Living Waters Fly Fishing fly shop which offers all your fly fishing gear and apparel.
