Trout limits changing

Texas Parks and Wildlife Department believes reducing the trout bag limit will improve the overall fishery.


Love it or hate it, if you fish south of the swing bridge in Sargent, fewer speckled trout will be hitting the grease come Sept. 1.

As part of the 2014-15 Statewide Recreational and Commercial Fishing Proclamation, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission adopted rules to extend a 5-trout bag limit, currently in effect in the Lower Laguna Madre, up the coast through Highway 457 bridge.
