Life's Better Outside
Life's Better Outside Activity of the Month: Fishing
Did you know there is a place in your city where the fish come to you?
Texas Parks and Wildlifes Neighborhood Fishin program brings fishing to urban areas. The neighborhood ponds are fully stocked every two weeks with either catfish or trout, making it a fun and easy outing for the whole family. Visit neighborhoodfishin.org to find a fully stocked pond near you!
Finding fishing close to you is as simple as entering your zip code! Enter your zip on this website to find all the fishing opportunities in your area. Kids 17 and under do not need a fishing license. Find out where you can purchase a license near you!
