Spring is here and for many that means getting back out on to lakes, or bringing out some chairs and setting up on a bank somewhere while casting a line to fish. Fishing and being outdoors has grown since Covid and it remains popular today.

Texas has a ton of great lakes, rivers, creeks, and local ponds to fish at. It can get overwhelming and a little confusing to know where you should go to have the best luck at catching something.

Fortunately, The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department puts out a great guide each week that informs you of how lake conditions are throughout the state of Texas. The reports also tell you the baits that are working well. You can also find information about stocking reports in rivers, small lakes, and ponds. It's all great information that anglers need to have.
