Want to find out if you like fishing without spending a lot of money first? Do you have friends or neighbors who want to try fishing but need to borrow some tackle? If so, then the Fishing Tackle Loaner Program is for you!

This program loans fishing equipment just like a library loans books. Individuals can borrow rods, reels and tackle boxes with hooks, sinkers and bobbers for up to 2 days.

All you need to do is go to the Lake Kyle Parks Office during office hours, fill out a loaner survey and form, and go fishing. The only thing you will need to provide is your bait (we sell bait at Lake Kyle from $4-$6).

Effective September 1, 2014, Lake Kyle is a Catch & Release lake. TPWD regulations found at this link, click here.

Remember: If you are over 17, you will need a Fishing License. Check with the Lake Kyle Park Office for specific details. If you are under 18, you will need to bring an adult when you check out equipment.
