Who's ready to fish?

According to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, it's time for White Bass Run Season in Texas and we have a list of places you will want to head out to for a good weekend of fishing.

For those that aren't familiar with the white bass run, each Spring white bass run upstream from reservoirs into rivers and creeks to spawn which leads to great fishing opportunities for those who have just taken up fishing as well as the seasoned pros. White bass can be caught from boats and from banks in many parts of Texas.

The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department put together a list of great places to head to for prime fishing during the white bass run season.

Colorado River: Above Lake Buchanan, bank anglers can fish for white bass without a fishing license at Colorado Bend State Park. The park offers a boat ramp and bank access.

San Gabriel River: Upstream of Granger Lake, anglers can find white bass fishing at a public access point called Dickerson’s Bottom, aka “The Steps,” in the Granger Wildlife Management Area. This location can be found three-quarters of a mile east of SH 95 on County Road 347 in Williamson County.

Neches River: Above Lake Palestine, anglers can find public access at Chandler River Park. This RACA site    offers nearly 6,000 feet of river frontage for bank fishing and includes a boat ramp and kayak launch.

Llano River: Access to the river is provided through the Kingsland Slab RV Camp with 750 feet of river frontage along the Llano River. This River Access and Conservation Area (RACA) site offers free public fishing access and is located at 7300 River Oaks Dr. in Kingsland.

Sabine River: Above Toledo Bend Reservoir in Panola County, anglers can find public access for white bass fishing at the Grand Bluff Boat Ramp, which offers 275 feet of river frontage and a single trailer boat ramp. This RACA site offers free public access to the Black Shoals fishing hole located about 3 miles upstream.

Frio River: Above Choke Canyon Reservoir, public access points for white bass fishing can be found at county road and highway crossings, including the Highway 99 bridge crossing and boat ramp in McMullen County.

For those of us in West Texas, this may mean taking a weekend and getting out to a lake or river and either camping out or renting a place while fishing during the weekend. Just another excuse to take a weekend to relax.
