I've got a few spots I like on public rivers but there's no parking allowed on the roadside there. Will Uber drop off and pick you up at a remote location (like just by the side of the road?) after a fishing trip? I guess it'd be easier to get them to drop you off than to pick you up in some random place.

I don't really have anyone to drop me off in these places. a few times I've parked illegally but yesterday some busy body woman drove by with her window down yelling " you'll get towed there you can't park there!" I ignored her and fished for 30 minutes anyway (caught 3 on my first 3 casts HAHA! and then a 4th that was about 16 inches a little later) Then, I skedaddled in case she decided to call the local Law.

I bet Uber would do that.

Cut with her golden oars the silver stream,
And greedily devour the treacherous bait.

Never thought of uber. They will come get you whenever and where ever in my experience.

I have had the wife drop me off many years ago at a pond by Lewisville mall before and pick me up after she was done shopping. Why not uber or lyft?

Public fishing, but no public parking? There's money to be made in there, somewhere.

Interesting idea!

It is one of the sad realities of the logistics of fishing that we have literally hundreds of lakes, miles and miles of rivers all across Texas . . . but the totality of free public parking access points really under-serves the angling/recreational communities.

If you can imagine a single double-wide door being the only ingress/egress point for a college football stadium, that's about how restricted our access is.
