Texas Catfish Management Plan

posted in: regional | 0

Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) has completed work on a plan designed to expand angling opportunities for Texas’ growing urban population and introduce the next generation of anglers to fishing.

More than a year in preparation, the plan (A Vision for Catfish in Texas) describes why catfish are likely to become more important to Texas anglers in the future, depicts the catfish species available in the state, reports results of surveys of Texas catfish anglers and presents goals and strategies designed to make catfishing better.

Catfish can tolerate a wide range of environmental conditions. They are easy to catch, good to eat, and easily reared and stocked into ponds and streams, making them ideal for providing fishing opportunities close to where people live.
