Twin Buttes Reservoir Enforces New Entrance RegulationsPress Release
SAN ANGELO, TX - For those people planning on enjoying a last round of camping, fishing, hiking, or barbecuing one last time this Labor Day weekend at the Twin Buttes Reservoir, there is a change that goes into effect today in which people need to be aware.
Starting today, the Twin Buttes recreation area is under a Public Hunting Lease with Texas Parks & Wildlife Department. In order to fish, hike, camp, or picnic in this area, people 17 years and older will need a "Limited Public Use permit," which is $12 per year. Or they can purchase an Annual Public Hunting permit for $48, which also includes hunting. Either way, each person over 17 planning on entering the recreation area will need to have a permit.
"These permits are sold on a license-year schedule, expiring August 31," said officials with the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department.
Thus, for those residents who are making their plans, they can stop at any location that sells hunting or fishing licenses to buy the permits.
