This is Passport to Texas

Summer has arrived—at least when it comes to the June edition of Texas Parks and Wildlife magazine. Editor Louie Bond is here to offer a peek inside the issue, and offers a glimpse of ten state park hidden gems and a boatload of coastal fishing fun.

51—We’re going to go out fishing with one of our favorite newspaper columnists, David Sykes. He’s going to take us out in search of flounder. And along the way, tell us how flounder are doing. We’re also going to take a look at sea turtles. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love sea turtles—and certainly we do, too. And Rusty Middleton is going to take a look at how sea turtles are doing these days. And then our own Rob McCorkle, is going to take a look ten hidden gems—parks that aren’t as iconic and maybe aren’t as well knows as Garner, Palo Duro, or Enchanted Rock, but these are wonderful places where it might be easier to get reservations. You may be able to participate in things that you had no idea even occurred. They may even be in your own backyard. So we want to shine the light on some great parks that you might now have heard of. But the main thing in June is just to get outside; the kids are out of school, so it’s time to go out and explore Texas State Parks.

Thanks, Louie.
