I just had a friend tell me he got a ticket headed to go fish. How correct is this. Since we are in a Lock down.

I been last 3 days...only 1 ramp open on Lewisville and 50 boat trailers were there. Lake is up 8 ft and most parks are closed due to high water. It is to my understanding you can fish as long as you keep social distance. State parks are open according to TPWD.


There is a fine line between fishing and floating around like an idiot!!

post a pic of the ticket as to what the legal charge was...also, would be good to know what location. any reasonable judge will throw this ticket out in a second. just a humble guy trying to feed his family.

A lockdown is different from a shelter-in-place. But best to find out exactly what the ticket was for. If you can't work to get pay, then rightfully & legally you should be able to go fish (of course the law requires you to have a valid fishing license), to feed your family. Unless of course marshall law has been imposed, which would be much more than a lockdown, or even a curfew.

Denton County Executive Order states that outdoor activities are essential and are allowed but you gotta stay 6 ft away unless your a family unit. Every county is different but Denton County is one of the strictest counties in the state.

Sirjet what did he get ticketed for? I have heard many many mayors and public officials saying they are NOT going to be ticketing people; only that they would give verbal warnings to groups greater than 10 and if they repeated that offense they MAY be issued a citation.

Azul there is also a part of that document you posted that specifically mentioned that "Farming, Fishing, and Hunting" are allowed as long as you do the social distance thing.

I think he was lying. I asked him to see it and he has not responded. But I do have a Social Distance question.
What is the case if we are all in the same truck to get to the lake? There is only 3 of us.

I have read that it's ok if they are all members of your household. They may check licenses to verify that info. Social distancing applies to everyone that doesnt live with you.
