- How many of you anglers spend your time fishing in rivers? Before the days of big dams storing water and providing electricity, TP&WD and anglers spent all of their time fishing and supporting our river systems. Times have changed, and they are more fishing options than ever before. However, if you are like many of us, rivers are so special to us, and access to these prime locations is something we pursue. Well we have exciting news for you, and need your help. The Texas Council is currently looking for ways to get new access to the rivers we love to fish. Please share with us locations that you know of that might become a new river access location that we could all enjoy. Stay tuned for more exciting news.
