Are you ready to get out do a little fishing, but aren't quite sure where the fish are biting right now? With Spring around the corner, more and more Texans will be hitting the lakes, creeks, rivers, and ponds across Texas.

Fishing has seen a boom in popularity since the pandemic as families began spending more time outdoors and some rediscovered a love of fishing. In Texas, there are lots of great places to fish and that means for many, where they fish comes down to how much time they have or how far they want to travel.

That's why the weekly fishing reports from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department is such an important tool. Each week, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department updates these reports, normally on Thursday mornings with information they get from third parties like fishing guides, marinas, bait shops, etc.

So how are things looking at Lake Alan Henry? As of March 2nd, crappie are biting according to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.

FAIR. Water clear; 52 degrees; 10.67 feet below pool. Despite the high winds last week reports of big crappie biting at the Crappie House on minnows. Report by Bait Kandy Corp.

Texas Parks and Wildlife puts out both a freshwater fishing report and a saltwater fishing report. Right now in Rockport, the report is "GREAT".

GREAT. 62 degrees. Redfish are good 1-2 feet of water on cut bait, soft plastics, and topwaters near sand pockets. Trout are good in 1-4 feet of water with a mud and shell bottom on live bait, suspension baits, and large soft plastics. Drum are great in 2-4 feet of water on dead shrimp. Pre-front bites have been really good. Report provided by Captain Damian Hubbs, Top Gun Outfitters.

So be prepared the next time you head out fishing and use the weekly fishing reports from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.
