November Marks the Start of Texas Oyster Season

VICTORIA, Texas – The fall season also calls for oyster season and locals are preparing to get out on the water. November officially kicks off the season and the Texas Parks and Wildlife is reminding people of regulations for those hitting the water

“It’s a six-month-long season and there are a lot of areas open, so today, we’re just going to start checking areas that had not been checked in a while,” explains Chelsea Bailey, a Texas Game Warden.

A valid fishing license is required to be out on the water in specific oyster harvesting areas through the end of April. This includes a captain license and anyone on the boat who may be operating captures.
