Stillhouse Hollow Reservoir Fishing Guide Ander Meine

Ander Meine's Personal Best Catch

It’s hard to pin Lake Pro Guide Ander Meine down long enough to ask him about his guide credentials. See, in addition to reporting for Lake Pro Guides, Ander is also the owner of “Bassquatch Fishing,” a guide service providing guided trips to 11 different lakes in the Austin area. He has 30+ years of fishing experience and 18+ years of competitive tournament fishing experience. 

Ander has lived in several different states throughout the west which has given him the opportunity to fish and understand a wide array of bodies of water; from the tidal waters of the California Delta to the ultra-deep, clear waters of Lake Mead in Nevada. With such a diverse background, we think that Ander’s versatility in his angling styles is likely his greatest asset and why we’re proud to call him a Lake Pro Guide.

He also has years of experience with fishing for all three of the primary black bass species: Largemouth, Smallmouth, and Spotted Bass. Ander has been fishing Texas waters for over 10 years now and feels right at home finding and catching monster Texas bass. 

Fishing Stillhouse Hollow Reservoir

Stillhouse Hollow is an extremely clear and deep reservoir. The main lake area is dominated by a steep, rocky shoreline with limited amounts of standing timber. There are also numerous beds of hydrilla in the lower lake. The upper lake and river areas are slightly stained with numerous laydowns, brush piles, and standing timber. Texas Parks and Wildlife Department recently worked with local partners to add fish-attracting structure at four sites.

Stillhouse Hollow Lake has been stocked with species of fish intended to improve the utility of the reservoir for recreational fishing. Fish present in Stillhouse Hollow Lake include largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, white bass, catfish, and crappie.

The record bass for Stillhouse Hollow was 13.00 pounds, 27.50 inches, caught in December 2019 by Justin Rogers using a rattletrap.
