Fishing Lake

The lake at Bane Park is stocked each winter with rainbow trout by the Texas Department of Wildlife and also contains bluegill, channel catfish, and largemouth bass. Catch and release-fishing is encouraged. The lake is open M-F 7 a.m. – 10 p.m. and Sa & Sun 8 a.m. – 10 a.m. A Harris County Household Hazardous Wastes Station is located nearby for the disposal of paints, batteries, and other items that contain hazardous materials.

Lake Houston is a large, shallow reservoir that’s not known as a trophy bass lake, but it does produce solid numbers of 1- to 3-pound bass. Anglers can target hydrilla beds with plastic worms and crankbaits in spring, and work main-lake points and ledges with jigs or Carolina rigs during summer. A good night bite can occur in fall on deep ledges, and topwater excels around sunset. Snook fishing is best in summer, especially from June through August, in Galveston Bay and Matagorda Bay.


Located in the neighborhood off 290 and west of Beltway 8, the park offers multiple recreational opportunities. There are two lighted baseball fields, a five-acre wheelchair-accessible fishing lake (stocked annually with rainbow trout and catfish), a paved walking trail, barbecue pits, and picnic pavilions. The park also includes a playground, splash pad, a rock climbing wall and sand volleyball courts, and horseshoe pits. There is also a Harris County Household Hazardous Wastes drop-off station where the public can turn in items like paint, batteries, and items that contain mercury or aerosols.

Named after the man who donated the land, Bane Park is a great place to bring your family for a day outdoors. Spend time catching fish in the lake, horsing around on the playground equipment, or running through the splash pad. This park is a hidden gem that is well-maintained and loved by the community.

With two play structures (large & small) plus swings, this park has plenty to offer the kids. A sand volleyball court, horseshoe pits, and a paved walking trail round out the amenities. The splash pad is a cool addition and we enjoyed the rock wall climbing structure. The lake is stocked with rainbow trout (catch-and-release), largemouth bass, and catfish.
