SAN ANTONIO - Summer is in full swing, and what better time to get out and go fishing.
But time is running out.
The Neighborhood Fishin' lakes are fully stocked, as the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department stocks them every two weeks through July.
That means its time to get out and get your chance to reel in a channel catfish, which makes for great summer eating.
Here are some fishing tips to remember:
- Fish with no more than 2 poles
- Catch limit is 5 catfish
- Don't use cast nets
In San Antonio, the Neighborhood Fishin' lakes are Miller's Pond and Southside Lions Park. And don't forget that kids 16-and-under fish for free. No license required.
And when is the best time to go fishing? Anytime is the best time, just as long as you get out before the August stocking break. Final stocking is July 27.
