Fishing at Precinct 4 Parks

Fishing enthusiasts can experience many unique fishing opportunities year-round at lakes and creeks in Precinct 4.

Each winter, the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department (TPWD) stocks the lakes at Bane and Burroughs parks with rainbow trout. Throughout the year, the lakes at Bane, Burroughs, and Meyer parks also contain bluegill, channel catfish, and largemouth bass. Anglers also have the opportunity to catch a wide variety of fish along Cypress and Spring creeks in Collins Park, Jesse H. Jones Park & Nature Center, and Pundt Park.

All TPWD rules and regulations apply to the public waterways within Precinct 4. For more information on fishing regulations, licensing, and stocking, please visit the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department Web site or call 800-792-1112.
