It just doesn't get much better than fishing for trout and camping in a Texas State Park with friends and family - and fresh trout cooked over a hot campsite fire is the way to go. Lots of Texas State Parks offer an opportunity to fish for catfish, bass, crappie and more, but here is a list of Texas State Parks that stock their lakes with trout. These tasty trout are meant to be caught and eaten as you sit around the picnic table at your campsite. If you're fishing for trout in any of the Texas State Parks you can fish without a license, borrow fishing gear in some State Parks at no cost, and keep up to 5 trout per day -so all you need to is bring a smile, a camera, and have fun!
