Fishing license required in Ruddick Park

molanofishesinparkSpring is approaching which means more and more people will be getting outside to enjoy the nice weather. Fishing is an outdoor activity enjoyed by many in this area, and Game Warden David Hopkins wants to remind citizens to get a fishing license before tossing a line.
All fishermen 17 years and older are required by Texas law to purchase a fishing license, even if they are fishing in a small body of water like Lone Wolf Creek which runs through Ruddick Park. Hopkins said there is actually a city ordinance on the books that reserves fishing in the park for those 16 and under. The ordinance also says that fishing from the bridge, or water crossing, is prohibited as well.
Fishing licenses are not required if fishing on Texas State Park property or in waters completely enclosed by a State Park. Fishing by pole only is allowed on man-made structures within the state parks and all other fishing regulations such as bag limits and size limits apply.
According to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Outdoor Annual, an ethical angler takes only what he can use and uses what he takes, always recycles or properly disposes of monofilament line to protect the environment and aquatic or wildlife resources, leaves no litter and doesn’t pollute waters, and records their trophy with care and returns it to the water.
All fishing regulations can be found in detail in the Outdoor Annual, and Hopkins encourages anyone seeking more information to contact him by calling 325-207-7894.
