SAN ANTONIO – Two popular San Antonio fishing spots will be stocked with catfish ahead of Labor Day weekend.

The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s San Antonio Inland Fisheries District has announced that Southside Lions Park and Miller Pond will be stocked.

An estimated 850 catfish will be stocked at Miller Pond and 1,075 at Southside Lions Park.

Both fishing spots will be regularly stocked until the end of October.

Many Texas lakes are stocked with catfish as part of the annual Neighborhood Fishin’ program. The program is part of TPWD’s efforts to bring the fishing experience to urban centers and connect Texas families with nature.

In previous catfishing seasons, Southside Lions Park has stocked more catfish than any other lake in the program.


A fishing license is required for adult anglers and can be purchased starting at $11 for a one-day all-water license. Children under 16 can fish for free. You can purchase a license from local retailers or online here.

Anglers no longer need to carry a paper fishing license. A legible digital photograph, an emailed receipt, a record of an online purchase, or a digital copy of your fishing license is also acceptable.
