Saturday, June 2nd 2018 is National Free Fishing Day! For one day per year, the State of Texas waives the requirement for fisherpeople ages 16 and up to have a license, so on this day, everyone is able to fish anywhere in Texas without a license! Take advantage by coming out and renting one of our fishing poles for $5. We also have bait available for purchase ($5) and water, gatorade and ice cream available as concession.

*As per Texas Parks & Wildlife Department policy, every other day of the year, a Texas fishing license is required for anyone ages 16 and up to fish at Town Lake.
