Fishing Opportunities Near Grapevine

Post By: Jamesbo      Posted: 6/21/2011 1:41:30 PM     Points: 489    
I will be staying in Grapevine in early July for the 2011 Showbiz National Finals in Arlington (dance competition). My son is 11 and won't need a license. If I am tieing knots and unhooking fish for him, will I need a license? If so, what out-of-state license options are there? I am trying to decide whether to even bring any fishing equipment. There should be plenty of time to fish while his sister is dancing.

Thanks in advance.

You can get information on fishing license here.

Grapevine has plenty of bank fishing opportunities as most of it us surrounded by public land. The area on the opposite bank from the Gaylord is all parks and there is deeper water within casting distance. This area is popular for catfish, white bass and carp among others.

You can get a fishing license online, at Wal Mart, Academy or Bass Pro all of which are in Grapevine.

Thank you. It looks like I can get a one day non resident license for $16. I'll try the places you suggested. I already have promised my son a trip to BPS while we're there.
