Fishing opprtunities are extensive and we enjoy everything from fly fishing the Colorado or Tres Palacios rivers, to fishing the bay for Red Fish, Trout or Flounder. From May through October, we hold fishing tournaments throughout the county. Biking enthusiasts love the area for its wide open spaces and there is no better place to sail than in Matagorda Bay.
Matagorda County has more than 50 miles of coastline and literally hundreds of miles of rivers, creeks and bayous, you'll find every type of habitat for almost any type of fish!
Education and Saltwater fishing videos are provided on the Texas Parks & Wildlife site. If you love fishing, you might like to know where to fish in Palacios, Sargent or Matagorda. Maybe you would like to take a look at the current Gulf Coast Fishing Report.
If you are going to fish at any of the public waters in Texas, and that includes both fresh water and salt water, you will need a fishing license and the appropriate tags. Residents or non-residents can purchase fishing licenses that allow them to fish. You can find commercial fishing guides at Matagorda, Palacios and Sargent.
