The cool spring water of Salado Creek runs through the heart of Salado, Texas, a frequent stop for stagecoaches in their journey along the Chisholm Trail. Full of rich history and legend, this twenty mile Texas Natural Landmark winds northeast to its confluence with the Lampasas River. The limestone creek bottom, reliable hatches, and abundant baitfish and crawfish are reminiscent of our home water, Brushy Creek. However, the abundant springs regulate water flow and temperature for year round wading and fishing, while the more remote location produces eager fish ready to bite.
Start your journey at Pace Park for a introduction to Sirena the Native American Mermaid – legend has it that her tears are the source of the springs themselves. Be on the lookout for wheel ruts in the bedrock along your way from the wagons which passed through in the 1800s. Finally, stop in for a bite after your trip at the historical Stagecoach Inn, Texas’ oldest continuously running hotel.
