I have been trying to find info about hunting zones for Eagle Mountain and Lake Bridgeport, does anyone know where to find them or the legalities of hunting the lakes?

You will need to look up the government entity that manages each lake and research their policies. COE lakes each have their own policies. Some COE lakes are managed by the Ft Worth office and some by the Tulsa office. TRA managed lakes have different policies for different lakes as well.

Neither one of those lake are Corps of Engineer lakes. I believe the Tarrant County Water District owns/manages Lake Bridgeport, and may also manage Eagle Mountain, as they are both on the Trinity River, I think.

You are correct. I was thinking it was called the Trinity River Authority but I believe it is the TCWD. All have websites with information.

There is a sticky at the top of page of public hunting land links. With those links one should be able to find and click through to find the rules, ordinances, regulations, or contact info for just about every public hunting area and lake in Texas. Using links from that page.

Texas Lake Finder Site to find a lake's controlling authority. You can also use this site to get ramp closures and water levels while your on the page.
https://tpwd.texas.gov/landwater/water/habitats/rivers/authorities.phtml

https://tpwd.texas.gov/fishboat/fish/recreational/lakes/eagle_mountain/
Tarrant Regional Water District
10201 North Shore Drive
Fort Worth, Texas 76135
(817) 237-8585

Then use the link if provided or go back to the sticky using the list of water authority links.
Tarrant Regional Water Control District
http://www.trwd.com/

To to www.trwd.com and type in ordinance or general ordinance on the website search box. Or other words like hunting. Or just click around till you find the hunting rules. Or call or email them.
But since I did this for you already.
https://www.trwd.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/TRWD-General-Ordinance.pdf

Open the PDF. A tip.. Use Control F on your keyboard and type in hunting, then enter. Faster than scrolling through the entire document.

Then start over for the next lake.
