1. Mary Jo Peckham Park 5597 Gardenia Ln.

It's no secret that if you want bites, you should try Mary Jo Peckham Park. The park is part of the Texas Parks and Wildlife's "Neighborhood Fishin'" Program. TPWD regularly re-stocks the lake at Mary Jo Peckham with catfish and rainbow trout every two to four weeks during summer and winter, with a brief pause in August. Kids 16 and under don't require a license.

2. Mason Creek

Just north of Franz Road on Porter is a hike and bike park with a large, central lake. The real fishing though, is in a small, bottle-necked creek that runs underneath the road.

3. Grand Lakes

Several Katy fisherman have reported water near Peek Road and South Fry is a big spawning location for bass in the winter months.
