Pack It In, Pack It Out

TPWD strives to leave our environment cleaner and more natural than when we found it. We encourage and expect all visitors to do the same by taking any trash and recycling out of the access area and properly disposing.

Angling Opportunities

Fishing opportunities abound in this segment of the Brazos River for largemouth, spotted and white bass. Channel catfish, freshwater drum, and sunfish are also good species to target. Fishing for largemouth and spotted bass is best when turbidity in the river is low, as these species feed primarily by sight. Anglers are urged to practice moderation in harvesting sportfish in this segment of the Brazos River, especially largemouth and spotted bass.

Fishing Regulations

All species are currently managed under statewide regulations. A current freshwater or combo fishing license is required for each angler to fish.
