TPWD will be taking public comment on the following proposed changes to 2020-2021 Statewide Waterfowl Hunting, with input to be considered before any action by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission at its March 26 public hearing:

• Establish seasons and bag limits for the take of migratory game birds for 2020-21
• Decrease the daily bag limit for scaup from three to one in all zones
• Decrease the daily bag limit for light goose daily bag limit from twenty to ten during the regular season in both zones
• Shift goose seasons (and light goose conservation season) in the Western Zone one week later than in previous years
• Shift snipe hunting season dates two weeks later than in previous years

The public is encouraged to provide comment on the proposed regulation changes.

Lake Palestine Fishing Report from TPWD (Jun. 3)

EXCELLENT. Water lightly stained; 82 degrees; 0.27’ high. Largemouth bass are good working TEXAS rigged craws, swimbaits, and crankbaits. Crappie are excellent on jigs and minnows around bridges and marinas in 12-25’. Hybrid stripers are very good on slabs and live bait. White bass are excellent on swimbaits and slabs in 25-45’. Look for birds diving over feeding schools. Catfish are excellent on cut shad, chicken livers, and prepared baits.
