Because Life is Better at the Lake

Proposed Changes to Waterfowl Hunting for 2020-21

by




TPWD will be taking public comment on the following proposed changes to 2020-2021 Statewide Waterfowl Hunting, with input to be considered before any action by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission at its March 26 public hearing:

• Establish seasons and bag limits for the take of migratory game birds for 2020-21
• Decrease the daily bag limit for scaup from three to one in all zones
• Decrease the daily bag limit for light goose daily bag limit from twenty to ten during the regular season in both zones
• Shift goose seasons (and light goose conservation season) in the Western Zone one week later than in previous years
• Shift snipe hunting season dates two weeks later than in previous years

The public is encouraged to provide comment on the proposed regulation changes.

Lake Fork Fishing Report from TPWD (Jul. 29)

GOOD. Water lightly stained; 85-89 degrees; 0.77 low. Largemouth bass are good on blue fleck, purple and dark green plastic worms, diving crankbaits, bladed jigs and chatter baits near deep structure, points and humps in 14-28’. Some topwater action early with plugs and buzz baits. White and yellow bass are good in the deeper waters of main lake drop-offs, flats and humps. Crappie are good on jigs and minnows in 18-25’ in brush piles and standing timber. Catfish are good on cut bait and live bait in 10-20’.
