FAN returns to Llano County Park on Lake Buchanan for event #3 February 24, 2018 

“We’re anxious to see some quality bass brought to the scales at Lake Buchanan as we get the 2nd half of the FAN High School Fishing Series started in late February” stated Justin Rieger. “With the lake holding near full capacity for a couple of years now after its very long drought, this 22,000 surface acre lake is prime to produce some great fishing for the student anglers this spring”

Be sure to watch our video of Llano County Park from 2016 to get a first-hand view of the park and what to expect tournament morning HERE.
And thanks to our friends at LBCC for everything they do to keep Lake Buchanan a top quality fishery.
