Anyone ever duck hunt the San Jacinto north of Spring Creek? Been kayaking with the family and have seen a bunch of mallards and woodies around the area.

That section of river is going to be entirely along private land. It's narrow and probably even less water outside of the Spring months. Other than finding a landowner on the river you can work something out with your going to be out of luck on this one.

I don’t see why the river is off limits but I know that they are pretty restrictive on stuff in Harris county.

I believe you can hunt the river, but it has to be north of where spring creek and the San Jac meet (Montgomery County). Definitely narrow, and all private property on both side owned by development and Sand plants.

The thing about rivers/creeks is your shot has to stay (legally) within the banks. As soon as your pellets go up and out and onto private you have broken the law. Unless someone has filmed you I'd guess first time offense would be a warning from the GW. I had a Tx GW tell me this when I asked him about it....he said he could care less where my shot landed but if I pissed off the landowners or deer hunters he'd shut me down.

Yes, you can hunt most navigable waterways, but there are state laws that can make that difficult contained to a narrow waterway like the San Jacinto. The one that your projectile can't cross a property line already mentioned. As well you can no longer hunt flooded water over private land. Then there is the problem with ducks or cripples falling onto private land off the river. Then you have to choose which regulation to break, either trespass or waste of game. But if you find an area wide enough and or adjacent landowner blessing and or game warden blessing, go for it.
