From trails to picnic areas to fishing in the trout-stocked San Antonio River, this riverside park is one of San Antonios best places for outdoor activities.
Two paved boat ramps are available at this power plant reservoir which is stocked full with Largemouth Bass and Red Drum.
Similar to the setup of Braunig Lake (and a one day pass to one of the lakes also allows access to the other), visitors have bank access and camping/RV areas available to them.
Bluegills, catfish and more await fishermen who come to Converse North Park City Lake. Stocked annually by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, the lake is great for recreational fishing.

Located in the Greenway a short walk from Rohde Park at the Buddy Calk Trailhead, this rugged spot is the ultimate man v. nature spot with no amenities but lots of catfish, perch and bass.
Recently renovated to become both more people friendly and environmentally conscious, this spot boasts a fishing pier and shore access at Our Lady of the Lake University.
Though this park only has a few amenities-- 3 picnic tables, some benches, walking trail and pond with fishing--fishermen can still catch a few at this quieter spot named for a San Antonio patrolman who was killed in the line of duty.

Featuring two dog parks on the premises, this relatively small pond is a little bit of a challenge. For sunfish and a few small bass, this spot might be better for some catch and release on the banks of the pond.
Fishing is allowed from the banks of the pond or from the fishing pier at Woodlawn Lake, stocked once a year with catfish.
Visitors can look forward to grills and picnic tables at this park that is open from sunrise to sunset. Good bank access is available; boats and swimming are not allowed.
