AUSTIN -- In June, the weather’s warming up, fish are biting, and many Texans are eager to get outdoors to try to reel in bass, catfish, redfish, and other sport fish. Anglers of all ages should be reminded that they don’t need a fishing license to fish inside the more than 70 Texas State Parks that offer fresh or saltwater fishing from shore, pier, or boat.

If you’re new to the sport of fishing or want to introduce your children to a new way to enjoy the outdoors, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department makes it easy through the Go Fish! and Fish With-the-Ranger programs that teach the basics of angling and give an overview of the different types of fishing equipment.

In the Texas Hill Country, Inks Lake State Park west of Burnet will host a “Fishing With the Ranger” program from 6-7 p.m. every Friday throughout the summer. A similar hands-on fishing workshop will take place from 2-3 p.m. Saturday, June 22, at Lake Arrowhead State Park in Wichita Falls.

In the Dallas-Fort Worth area, Go Fish! Learn-to-Fish events will be held at several state parks, including Cedar Hill (9 a.m.-noon, June 15) and Lake Tawakoni (9 a.m.-noon, June 15). For a complete list of summer fishing derbies and events, workshops, and other fishing-related activities, visit www.texasstateparks.org/fishing.

Some state parks even offer loaner equipment to families to make the fishing experience more affordable. Find one of 30 state parks near you that loans out rods, reels, and fishing tackle to use for up to seven days by visiting www.tpwd.state.tx.us/learning/angler_education/tackloan.phtml.

TPWD makes fishing close to home easier than ever by stocking fish in a number of local parks and ponds through its Neighborhood Fishing program. TPWD partners with local governments in 10 Texas cities to stock channel catfish and rainbow trout approximately every two weeks in small neighborhood lakes. In San Antonio, for example, anglers can fish at Miller’s Pond on the southwest side of town and Southside Lions Park on the southeast side.

To learn more about the Neighborhood Fishing program and where to go “wet a line,” visit www.neighborhoodfishing.org.
