TPWD Game Warden Field Notes
The following are excerpts from recent Texas Parks and Wildlife Department law enforcement reports.
"Something Isn’t Right Here" — March 1, an Ellis County Game Warden encountered four men who were fishing near the dam at Lake Waxahachie. The warden observed five fishing poles that were broken and had no fishing line, but the individuals had fish on board and filet fish in bags. Upon further investigation, the warden located 150 feet of gill net in their possession. One suspect admitted to using the net to catch the fish. Arrests were made and various charges are pending.
