As many of you readers are aware, bowfishing is increasing in popularity all around Texas. And also, as you know, Texas Freshwater Fly Fishing is concerned for the health of our fisheries and protecting all native species (not just gamefish.)

Well, good news! The momentum to protect these species is continuing to build on itself, and we have received word that the topic of bowfishing for native species is now on the agenda for the October meeting of the TPWD Freshwater Advisory Committee.
This is where your help can come in. To support our position, we will need to provide the following: supporting statements from different bodies of water around the state showing why you believe that this is indeed a problem. Your pictures and experiences are helpful right now.
What we need are your pictures of of dump sites. Please email pictures of dumpsites and shot native fish to email@example.com along with any pertinent information (location, date, your story, etc...) This information will be shared with the TPWD Freshwater Advisory Committee.
