Texas Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame

Freshwater fishing in Texas is a nearly $2 billion a year business in Texas — but it's much more than that. It's an important part of our quality of life; a way for busy people to slow down, spend time with family and friends, and contribute to the conservation of wildlife and water through the moneys they spend on fishing. Fishing is not just about catching fish. It's about supporting the whole fabric of environment and society that make fishing possible.

The Texas Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame honors individuals and organizations that have made significant contributions to freshwater fishing in Texas. Inductees are chosen by the Texas Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame Committee from among those nominated by the public. It is the diversity of the Hall's membership, reinforced by its members' lifelong accomplishments and contributions to freshwater fishing in Texas, that make this Hall of Fame truly special.
