    Are you allowed to bring your own rod & reel or not? My Dh would like to do some fishing but wondering about bringing your own stuff. Does anyone know?
    Thanks in advance

    There is no fishing allowed at the docks at FW. Bank fishing is allowed at the canals, the pond by the Meadows and Bay lake.

    You can bring you own equipment but they run you of the dock at settlement at 7 am They will let you fish from the beach on the rental center side of the dock. The small dock at the meadows is open all day. The Bridge at the meadows area is off limits to fishing. Per the Security guy (Mean Gene)

    Absolutely, by all means bring your own equipment.
    Ditto on what Al and Jeff said.
    Fish'n is fish'n, can be a real crap shoot,,we fish often at the Fort,,times we have caught real well, other times not so well.

    Bring a big choice of lures and plastics.:thumbsup2
