It was the official “Free Fishing Day” in Texas and we were determined to get in on some of that action.
It took us a while to find a nice quiet place to try to get our hooks wet. We drove around for an hour, the places that weren’t already packed, were flooded by the recent abundance of rain Texas has received.
Our “let’s look one last place” turned out to be the impassable road leading to our favorite camping spot.
We had only planned to perch fish anyway, so this place was as good as any for that! And the best part, there were no other folks trying to crowd in on the action. Thank God, because the five of us crowding in to fish down a one lane road was bad enough!

June 7th of this year was “Free Fishing Day” in Texas. This means we could fish any Texas waters for one day only without a fishing license! Of course, we had to load up the rods, paddle boat, picnic basket, & the family and headed out to the lake with my sister and brother in law!!
It was an absolutely beautiful day on Lake Sam Rayburn!!

We were headed back to Martin Dies Jr. State Park, this time to take advantage of the fishing without a license in the state parks! I wasn’t all that into fishing so I told them let’s first hike and geocaching the Wildlife Trail then go fishing later.
Austin was dubbed “pack horse” for today. He doesn’t mind because for the most part it is his field guides in that pack!
