Paddling the cool, clear waters of the Texas Hill Country is a favored pastime for Texas Parks and Wildlife Foundation’s (TPWF) We Will Not Be Tamed Ambassador Tony Smith. As the founder of Jarvis Boards, specializing in handmade wooden paddleboards, Smith appreciates knowing that these waters are home to the official state fish of Texas, the Guadalupe bass.
But our official state fish needs some help. Because of the rapidly increasing population in Central Texas, among many other factors, Guadalupe bass have completely disappeared from many Hill Country rivers where they once thrived.
That’s why TPWF is partnering with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department to restore Guadalupe bass through the Conserving Texas Rivers Initiative. TPWF members help support the effort, and so can you.
