State parks offer free fishing to all
Free Fishing in State Parks is designed to encourage more people to get out and enjoy the great sport of fishing. It has long been one of the most popular activities in the U.S., and it is the state’s hope that everyone will want to share in the countless memories that can be created out on the water.
To do that, Texas Parks & Wildlife has waived the normal fishing license and stamp requirements for anyone fishing inside the property boundary of a Texas state park. Once you’ve paid the park entrance fees, no one needs a fishing license or stamp, whether freshwater or saltwater, adult or child, as long as they’re inside the state park. However, bag limits, length limits, and other regulations will still apply, and will be enforced.
This applies to fishing from the bank, a pier, river or creek fishing, and fishing from a boat, if the water body is fully contained within the state park boundary. You can even wadefish in our coastal state parks along park property.
