The spring-fed South Lllano River offers different water types, including pools, gentle riffles and runs, so it is a popular destination for anglers. The river is also home to the state fish of Texas, the Guadalupe Bass.

The South Llano Paddling Trail spans 6.3 miles and has a float time of two to four hours, depending on water level, flow rate and wind speed. The river does not have man-made obstructions, like flood control dams, so rainfall runoff influences water levels. Heavy rainfall creates temporary high flows and dangerous water levels and flow rates.

The put-in for this paddling trail is at the river crossing inside the South Llano State Park. The take out is located in Junction City Park on the north bank of Junction Lake.

Note: The concrete apron on the bridge access site at South Llano River State Park collapsed, so the downstream side of the bridge is currently closed. Please follow the instructions at the designated exit locations.
