Hi everyone. I just moved to Dallas from OKC for work and fishing. The fishing rules here are confusing. Since I don't have a car, I plan on using the DART to get me up to White Rock Lake soon. If I fish from the bank, do I need a license? Thanks.

You will need a valid fishing license for any fishing in Texas unless its a private lake or a "community" lake (the definition of which is in the TP&W guide). Dang, this post just reminded me that I need to buy a new license.

Same here about the license , i usually by them on the 15 of august but been busy . Just got back from bps. Axlo yes you do need license at w/r . just a week ago i got checked by the DPD bike cop out there ... the odds are slim anyone will check you but there is a slim chance to be checked . the fine is not worth it imo

You are correct sir; you are also exempt in a boat or wading while in a water body contained entirely within a state park (not a river flowing through it, but a lake or pond entirely inside the park's boundaries).

You need a license if in a boat at State Park. Went thru this with neighbor, so called and was told if standing on property, no license, in boat need license. Park don't own lake, corp does.

The Corp does not own all lakes that has a State Park, take Tyler State park lake as an example.

If I understand it correctly one would not need a license to fish Tyler State Park lake from the bank nor from a boat.

Fishing in State Parks
•A fishing license and endorsement are not required if fishing on State Park property or in waters completely enclosed by a State Park.
•On man-made structures (docks, piers, jetties, etc.) within state parks, fishing is by pole-and-line only, with each person limited to two poles. All other fishing regulations, such as length and bag limits, remain in effect.
•Bow fishing is not allowed on state park property.

I was told that a valid, OK fishing license is good in TX. Any truth to this?

Which State Park did this occur in? I wasn't aware that the USACOE owned any lakes inside State Parks.

What difference does it make. That's not the topic of this thread.
