Catch and release fishing is available only in the six designated ponds listed below for Teravista. The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department requires persons age 17 to 74 to have a valid fishing license for recreational fishing in each of the ponds. Persons under the age of 17 are permitted to catch and release fish without a license.
Many of the designated “catch and release” ponds are natural. Because they are, even during extreme drought conditions we are unable to replenish the water levels. To do so could impair the riparian area (vegetation along or near the bank of the pond).
For additional information on catch and release, visit the Texas Parks and Wildlife website, Fishing, Recreational Catch and Release or review the Texas Parks and Wildlife Outdoor Annual Hunting and Fishing Guide.
