Nestled in the heart of the Texas Hill Country, Dos Rios is a hidden gem that has captured the hearts of nature enthusiasts.

We’re thrilled to offer you the opportunity to embark on memorable kayaking and fly fishing adventures down the mighty Llano River, right from our property.
Explore Kayaking in Texas Hill Country
The Llano River offers an unforgettable kayaking experience that begins at Section RR 2389, known locally as Dos Rios crossing (that’s us!), and extends to Simonsville Road, also known as Martin’s Crossing, down river. Covering 6.5 miles, this journey offers a moderate level of difficulty, making it accessible for both beginners and experienced adventurers. Expect the trip to take approximately 2 to 4 hours, providing ample time to immerse yourself in the natural beauty of the area.
Your Starting Point: Dos Rios
When embarking on your kayaking and fly fishing expedition, Dos Rios is your best bet for parking and launching your adventure. From this point, you’ll set out on a journey through the breathtaking landscapes that define the Hill Country. Yucca, cactus, oak, and cedar create a picturesque backdrop as you paddle down the river, passing through open ranchland that exemplifies the essence of this unique region. Keep your eyes peeled for bald eagles, and of course the famous big horn ram scampering the red rock cliffs!
Expert Guidance for Fly Fishing in Central Texas
To make the most of your Dos Rios experience, consider enlisting the services of professional fishing guides. Marcus Rodriguez and Johnny Quiroz, of Guides of Texas, can help you navigate the river’s twists and turns, ensuring you have an enriching fly fishing experience.
