As we touched upon in an earlier Reel Report, we are entering the time of year when freshwater fishing in Galveston and surrounding counties is in its prime for the year.

The options for freshwater fishing in this area is limited, however there are places that offer the opportunity to wet a line and catch a variety of freshwater fish. Bream, crappie, catfish, buffalo, carp and bass all are found in fresh and brackish waters around Galveston County.

Most people seem to think the Lagoon inside the TC/LM levee is salt water. It is rainwater runoff only. Kids learned bass could be caught several years ago, using minnows bought at an Alvin bait shop.
