Hunting

Llano is nationally known as the “Deer Capital of Texas” and hosts many  hunters seeking the abundance of white-tailed deer in the fall and winter  seasons. The Llano Chamber of Commerce hosts a Hunters’ Welcome each  Friday before deer season opens. 

Fishing

Year-round fishing in the picturesque Llano River and surrounding  Highland Lakes makes Llano a sportsman’s dream destination. Usually the  best time to fish the Llano River for bass is October and November when the  fish are most active. The Guadalupe bass is only found in the Texas Hill  Country and offers great sport for fly casters.
