Fish with a Ranger will meet at the Goose Island State Park Fishing Pier at 9:00 a.m.  Bring your own fishing pole or use one of ours.  The park will provide 10 fishing poles, one fishing pole per person, and bait.  Learn a few fishing basics while spending the morning on the pier.  This program will run until 10:00 a.m. or until we run out of bait, whichever happens first. 

If you would like to continue fishing on your own visit Park Headquarters to enquire about the Loaner Tackle Program.  Bait can be bought at Goose Island Bait & Tackle, next to the boat ramp.   

Helpful things to bring include: Sun screen, water, gloves if you have them, and a fishing pole. 

Fishing Pier: Is easily accessible.  Parking and restrooms are located adjacent to the pier.

There is no fee for attending fishing with a ranger, but a valid enterance permit is required.  Entry fees are $5 per person over the age of 13, children 12 and under are free, a current Texas State Park Pass will waive entry.
