Fishing at Oak Point

Three great blue herons and about the same number of people were fishing this morning before the pond stocking. I like the new mowed access points to the pond that replace the fishing pier. They let walkers, photographers, and other visitors get closer to the water. This is from Parks & Rec's facebook page:

For all you fishing enthusiasts, get your gear ready. We will be stocking the pond at Oak Point Park & Nature Preserve on Monday afternoon, Oct. 31 with 6”-8” large mouth bass. Just a reminder, fishing regulations at Oak Point fall under the jurisdiction of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, which means anyone 17 yrs and up (with certain exceptions) has to have a valid fishing license to fish in ALL public waters in Texas. Additionally, you can keep the fish you catch from the pond according to the TPWD fishing regulations. However, it will be next year before these ones will be big enough to catch and keep. For those of you who are new to the sport of fishing, free pole rentals are available at the Oak Point Park Nature & Retreat Center but you need to bring your own bait.
