Freshwater Harvest Regulations
- The bag and length limits below apply to all public fresh waters except for locations noted in the Exceptions to Statewide Freshwater Harvest Regulations.
- Possession limit is twice the statewide daily bag. The only exception to the statewide possession limits in fresh water is for striped bass from Lake Texoma. Please note that on lakes Caddo, Kirby, Livingston, Palestine, Toledo Bend and the Sabine River below Toledo Bend where some daily bag limits are larger than the statewide daily bag, the possession limits remain twice the statewide daily bag limits listed below. Fish stored by a person at their permanent residence do not apply to their possession limit.
- For saltwater finfish species caught in the public fresh waters of this state, saltwater bag, possession, and length limits apply.
For freshwater fishes not listed above, there are NO statewide bag or length limits. There are special requirements associated with the harvest of harmful or potentially harmful exotic fishes (tilapia, grass carp).
