Toledo Bend Lake

Because Life is Better at the Lake

Comments are Open for Proposed Hunting and Fishing Changes

by




The Texas Parks & Wildlife Department Commission is considering a number of changes to hunting and fishing regulations in 2020. However, prior to making any decisions, the Commission wants input from constituents in Texas.

Among other things, TPWD is looking at implementing rules to administer an automated process for issuing pronghorn and antlerless mule deer permits, decreasing the daily bag limit for scaup and goose, and changing the hunting seasons for goose and snipe.

TPWD has posted details regarding all of these issues on its website and is accepting public comment on them until 9 a.m. March 25. Constituents may also comment in person at the TPWD headquarters in Austin during the commission meeting at 9 a.m. March 25.




Tom Behrens has over 50 years experience in fishing and hunting across the United States. Much of this time was spent in Oklahoma and Texas where he became very familiar with the outdoor opportunities in these states. You may contact him by email at: tbehrcomm@gmail.com

Toledo Bend Lake Fishing Report from TPWD (Jul. 1)

FAIR. Water slightly stained; 82-83 degrees; 1.21’ low. Black bass are good staying shallow early and on cloudy days. Water clarity varies by location as the south is clear and better for the daytime bite. Wacky rigs, square billed crankbaits, and topwaters remain the best to tie on. Striped bass remain fair to slow in deep water. White bass are good schooling late in the afternoons in the many creeks and caught on spoons. Crappie are fair suspended over their brush piles in 25-26 feet, suspended 13-14 feet from surface using live shiners. Channel and blue catfish are fair on stinkbait.
