Finally some Austinites on this site. If you live in or near Austin, the best in the area would be Granger Lake just past Georgetown. Public but somewhat good, could be better if those farmers in the surrounding property would try growing crops instead of grazing it to near death. Lots of woodies, gadwalls, and bluebills. Not a lot of geese, like I said there's no food for em...you might get a few come in over your spread, but don't count on it. I carry a doz. mallards, and a half to a full doz bluebills. Keep the pintails for the coast.
