Buddy of mine told me it was now illegal to wade fish at San Luis Pass. Turns out it’s a half truth. The Brazoria County Comissioners Court has filed an order with multiple County and state agencies to create a penality for wade fishing, swimming and bathing in the designated areas of the Brazoria side on the attached map. So far it’s still America on the Galveston side.

I’ve fished the designated area before. I know at times the current in that area is extremely swift. IMO it’s not a good idea to wade out very far from that shoreline. I’ll never forget the trip when my buddy acted like he was getting swept away in the current. Anyways, here’s the notification.
