Fishing at HYC

Fishing at HYCFishing activities are an integral part of Houston Yacht Club activities. Each year we conduct two fishing tournaments, one in the spring and one in the fall. The rules are designed to stress fun and encourage conservation. Members who do not have boats are encouraged to team up with skippers or to fish from one of the club’s piers.

We typically schedule fishing tournaments to coincide with other events, so be sure to check the club calendar and plan to participate!
