TP&W TV – March Highlights

Passport to Texas from Texas Parks and Wildlife and the Sport Fish Restoration program

You get to learn a lot about Texas when you watch the Texas Parks and Wildlife TV series. Series producer Don Cash.

One of the places we feature is San Felipe Springs in Del Rio , Texas. And people have put their algae eating catfish from their aquariums in the water. And this is an exotic species, and they do have a detrimental affect.

The sucker mouth catfish has really taken over; this population basically went exponential. Literally hundreds of thousands of fish here. More than any other fish in this creek. Maybe more than all the other fish put together.

We always hit a state park in every show. In march, one of the places we go is Purtis Creek State Park, which is near Athens, Texas. And one of the things that they’ve got going now is a canoe tour.

We had an excellent response to canoe tours. You know, you can go to the zoo and you can see snakes and different wildlife. But out here, you’re seeing nature as it really is.

One of the other parks we go to is Ray Roberts Lake State Park, which is north of Denton. And Ray Roberts Lake is a 30-thousand acre lake. And the SP is actually, two major parks and six smaller parks and a greenbelt and an equestrian trail…

I’ve been riding here for about ten years. And the trails are beyond belief in their natural beauty.

So you don’t really just go to one park. It’s like you’ve got four or five or six parks to go to.

That’s our show with support from the Sport Fish and Wildlife Restoration Program… For Texas Parks and Wildlife…I’m Cecilia Nasti.
