I was throwing a cast net in San Antonio-Texas,in Brackenridge and Espada Park and was told it was illegal to do so.I looked at Texas Parks and Wild Life rules it states nothing of the sort.Any info on that, that can be shared.Thank you again for all you and this forum do.

Check out the Outdoor Annual. PDF here: http://tpwd.texas.gov/publications/pwdpubs/media/cs_bk_k0700_0284.pdf

It isn't under the cast net section, it's under the Pole and Line section.

Page 32 (definition):
Community Fishing Lake:
All public impoundments 75 acres or smaller located totally within an incorporated city limits or a public park,
and all impoundments of any size lying totally within the boundaries of a state park.

Page 34:
Pole and line is the only lawful method for taking game fish and nongame fish from Community Fishing Lakes (see
definition, pg. 32);

I see people constantly throwing them below the espada if it is illegal the park police don't seem to care from what I've seen
