Practice social distancing even when outdoors.

Please follow guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Texas Department of State Health Services.

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.
