The state of Texas offers anglers a diverse set of options when planning the perfect fishing trip. For those travelers who are looking to be a little more adventurous, 66 artificial reef sites along the Gulf Coast attract large saltwater fish and nearly 200 marine fish species including striped mullet, spotted seatrout, tarpon and common snook. If you’re not quite feeling up to saltwater fishing, there are plenty of lakes and rivers like scattered across the state where you can catch a variety of panfish, catfish, and even a brown trout or two. Head to Sam Rayburn Lake, Lake Livingston, or Lake Buchanan to find your own special fishing hole. Whether you prefer fly-fishing, or the deep sea variety, Texas has a fishing trip that fits all of your needs.
