Making memories in reel time

Anglers rejoice! TRWD facilities offer great fishing opportunities no matter where you want to fish. Our Urban Fishing program has been a long-standing event with the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department, providing fishing opportunities in the city since 1986.


Anyone 17 years or older needs a Fishing & Hunting License provided by Texas Parks & Wildlife.
