Not trying to be a downer just need information. Do the shelter in place, social distancing guidelines apply to bank and boat fishing as well. If anyone has input I would welcome it. A friend asked about going out and we do not want to be in violation or chance of misunderstanding with game officials. Thank you

Actually I think you would be fine with no more than 2 people in your boat and stay 6 feet apart. If your going out by yourself you would be fine. I’m going out in my kayak tomorrow on Lewisville.

Shelter in place means just that. You are not to be out.

You can fish or do outdoor activites as long as you are more than 6 ft away from another person

Cannot be further from the truth

Call the game officials and ask for their advice. It would be interesting to all of us to know their reply. They would probably be grateful for the call..

Does this answer it? I thinking we can. This is from the judge...

I disagree. You should look at the Order itself. Ours (San Antonio/Bexar County) says people may leave their houses to engage in activity that is in an open outdoor area, as long as you stay six feet from everyone but your family.

I called the Game Warden number and got no answer. That is why I thought to ask opinions on the Forum. We actually went out for a couple of hours, but had no luck. When to a bank spot and it was slow so called it a day. After listening to the Dallas County Judge is seems that outdoor activities are allowed as long as you practice social distancing and in limited numbers. He mentioned jogging and running trails in particular. I will try the Warden's office at a later time. Thanks for the responses.

the court order is pretty easy to read and allows fishing and outdoor exercise. gas stations are open (i would assume still selling bait as needed).

tell the person you need the fish to survive and no one is going to give you any issue. good luck!

I called my local police department and asked that question. I would say try doing the same in your area and see the guidelines there. All in all they did say fishing is allowed as long as you're 6ft apart from others.

It’s covered as an outdoor activity. In fact, I read that the state was considering opening up all state parks free of charge to encourage outdoor activities during the stay home, work safe times. You just have to adhere to best practices as outline for social distancing.


One 10-pounder is better than ten 1-pounders; but 100 1-pounders is ok too!
