Spotlight on TPWD
The Texas Parks and Wildlife Outdoor Annual includes regulations for recreational freshwater and saltwater fishing and hunting in Texas. While Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) strives to provide accurate information in the Outdoor Annual, hunting and fishing regulations may change due to legislative or Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission actions. The Outdoor Annual Mobile App may automatically update to reflect published changes upon establishment of a data connection, but users should independently check the associated statutes and regulations to verify their accuracy. For commercial fishing regulations, see the "Commercial Fishing Guide". For more detailed information on game and fish regulations, contact the Texas Parks and Wildlife Law Enforcement offices, or the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department at 800-792-1112 or 512-389-4800 (Mon.–Fri. 8 a.m.–5 p.m.).
