Catfish Stocking

Always consider your health and wellbeing as well as that of others before going fishing.

Follow your local, state and CDC guidelines for the most updated information. Here are some additional reminders if you plan on fishing.

  • Keep a six-foot social distance between yourself and others.
  • Avoid crowds: look for other times or places to fish.
  • Do not touch benches, railings, water fountains or other public facilities.
  • Wash hands before and after fishing, or after touching any surfaces.
  • Stay home if you are sick or have any symptoms of COVID-19.

Exact channel catfish stocking dates are subject to change. Please do not contact TPWD for specific stocking dates.
