Fishing In Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge


This 34,000-acre haven for wildlife is located on the upper Texas gulf coast.

The meandering bayous of Anahuac NWR cut through ancient floodplains creating expanses of coastal marsh and prairie bordering Galveston Bay. Prevailing breezes bring in moisture from the Gulf of Mexico, resulting in high humidity and an average annual rainfall of over 51 inches. Coastal marshes act as a huge sponge, holding and siphoning water from tropical storm tides and upstream flooding. These marshes, combined with the coastal prairie, provide a home for an abundance of wildlife, from migratory birds to alligators.

The refuge offers excellent saltwater and freshwater angling and crabbing opportunities. Six miles of shoreline along East Galveston Bay are accessible by boat or wade fishing. The East Bay Bayou Tract offers freshwater fishing opportunities from 3 bank piers and an accessible bridge. Two boat ramps provide access to East Bay and Oyster Bayou. Boating is not permitted in inland waters.

Saltwater Fishing

Some of the best wade fishing in Texas can be found on the refuge shorelines along East Galveston Bay. Whether you are wading or launching a boat, anglers looking for speckled trout, redfish and southern flounder can enjoy free access 24 hours a day on the refuge. Two boat ramps provide access to East Bay and Oyster Bayou. * Unless otherwise noted, boating is not permitted on inland waters of the refuge except for the boat canal at the Oyster Bayou Boat Ramp.*

Freshwater Fishing

Three fishing piers along the banks of East Bay Bayou and a wooden bridge offer anglers without a boat an opportunity to catch freshwater species like crappie, large mouth bass, gar, bowfin, channel and blue catfish. Small, non-motorized boats may be launched along East Bay Bayou at the canoe launch.
