Not public hunting to say, but Federal USDA / TPWD money for Public access to some great River sites. Should make a lot of yak and canoe fishermen happy

Lease program helps anglers' access to rivers
Texas anglers are benefiting from the state's River Access and Conservation Areas program that uses federal dollars to create public river access for fishing through lease agreements with private landowners.







The 30-mile-or-so stretch of the Brazos River downstream from Lake Whitney holds a wonderful bass fishery, with spectacular scenery and a world of wildlife in, over and along its course.

What it didn't have until recently was a way for most anglers to access and enjoy most of that exceptional resource without a major commitment in time and effort. Distances between public access/egress points, where float-fishing anglers could put in or take out the shallow-draft, non-motorized kayaks or canoes required to navigate that section of the Brazos, were too great for a simple day-long float-fishing trip. With more than 20 miles between public access points on one section, only those willing and able to invest a couple of days – and at least one night - on the river were able to experience what the Brazos offers.
