Please practice social distancing even when outdoors.

Protect your health and that of others by following state and local orders related to the pandemic. Please follow guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Texas Department of State Health Services.

If you plan to go fishing, stay close to home and check the status of the location you're planning to fish.

Some fishing access points are closed. As always, a valid fishing license is required and you must follow Texas fishing regulations, which can be found in the Outdoor Annual.

See list of temporary closures and operations adjustments.
