When you visit our parks or any natural wildlife area, remember that these areas are home to wildlife. To learn more about wildlife, including those that could be harmful, please visit the Texas Parks and Wildlife page, for tips on co-existing with wildlife.

Fishing License

A fishing license is required for anglers 17 years of age and older who wish to fish at Bailey Lake. All state guidelines and requirements are applicable. To learn more about fishing licenses, please go to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Division page.

Rules for Trout Fishing

As of December 2, 2014, Bailey Lake is filled with trout! Please note the rules for trout fishing; you are limited to 2 fishing poles per person. That means 1 person can’t be fishing with 5 poles. Speaking of 5, the limit is 5 trout per day (yes, per every 24 hours). If you catch 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 trout in 24 hours, you can keep it/them. But if you catch anything that is not a trout, you have to release it.
