LABOR DAY PARADE

LABOR DAY PARADE- ANNUALLY – Since 2003 – Pictured in 2007 it was the 5TH Annual Labor Day Parade with free picnic lunch and watermelon for the community donated by Timber Lane CIA, Hays Utility South and TLUD. We had 500 people in the parade and served 700 lunches. We also had live music during the picnic lunch.

The parade in 2013 was the 11th year, sponsored by HEB, and served over 1100 lunches.

In 2018 we will be celebrating our 15th year of having the parade and will have some special activities on September 3RD 2018.  The parade was sponsored by our local Foodtown supermarket.  It was wet but all enjoyed the day.

Where to Fish for Trout

Neighborhood Fishin’ Lakes and State Parks

Neighborhood Fishin’ lakes offer families in major cities some of the best opportunities to catch rainbow trout this winter.

Trout will also be stocked at more than 15 Texas State Parks throughout the state. Many state parks offer excellent fishing amenities such as fishing piers and shoreline access, cleaning stations, and equipment rentals for tackle and kayaks or canoes. As a bonus, anglers don’t need a fishing license to fish within a Texas State Park.

More Locations

We will be stocking rainbow trout below several dams and spillways, which often have very cool water and provide excellent conditions for trout fishing.

This year, rainbow trout will be stocked into the Canyon Tailrace on the Guadalupe River below Canyon Lake, the Lewisville Tailrace located on the Elm Fork of the Trinity River below Lake Lewisville, and the Possum Kingdom Tailrace on the Brazos River below Possum Kingdom Lake.

Other stocking locations include dozens of local city and county managed park ponds, the Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center casting pond, and several rivers including the Frio, South Llano, Guadalupe, and the Clear Fork of the Trinity River.

Regulations

  • No Minimum Length Limit; Daily Bag = 5 trout
  • An angler fishing in a Community Fishing Lake or from a dock, pier or jetty within a Texas State Park may use no more than two poles.
  • Special limits are in effect on parts of the Guadalupe River.

Fishing Licenses

  • Adults: Buy yours online, by phone (800-895-4248), or at a retailer for as little as $11 for resident one-day, all-water fishing.
  • Kids: No license is required for anglers under 17 years of age.
  • Visitors of all ages can fish without a license within Texas State Parks.
