All U.S. Army Corps of Engineers managed campgrounds have begun an orderly shutdown. Individuals with paid reservations will be contacted by email and full refunds will automatically be processed by Recreation.gov with no cancellation fees. Individuals should not attempt to contact Recreation.gov to request a refund as that will lead to a cancellation fee being charged. In addition, visitor centers, beaches, special events, and USACE-sponsored events such as shore sweeps, interpretive programs, Kids to Parks, Earth Day events, public meetings and other public gatherings have been closed and/or put on hold until further notice. USACE is maintaining access to our projects by keeping day use facilities and lake access areas open such as boat launches, picnic areas, fishing piers, and viewing areas, subject to change.
Mention shiner in Texas and you may receive a different response depending on exactly who you are talking. Many will equate to a small town north of Victoria in South Texas or to a fairly famous beer with the same name but ask someone who fishes and they’ll tell you all about shiners being used for bait to catch that larger game fish. There is even a couple of shiners (the ones with scales) that are endangered.
