State Park: There is an area adjacent to the launch ramps, either side, where people fish from the bank, mainly catfish. Further out, on the left hand side looking out from the ramps, people also wade/swim. You can drive down there and set up a canopy. It's several hundred yards from the camping area. I have also seen people wade fishing on the State Park Cove side, to the right (North) of the camping area, and you could possibly catch some bass there. There is also an area near the Zapata county ramp where you could fish from the bank and catch some fish; near the ramp, and to the right of the ramp. Hope this helps! Oh, and there are also shelters on the South side of the State Park for rent. I would call the park before going, you probably need to make reservations for the camping areas.
