CCA Texas Activities
CCA Texas volunteers and staff have already had a busy first third of the year. By the time this May issue of Texas Saltwater Fishing Magazine hits the stands, CCA Texas will have already held 20 Chapter banquets across the state. Early banquets are already setting the pace for another successful year by hitting budgets and attendance estimates and in some cases setting new records. Corpus Christi is one of the big highlights so far with an attendance approaching 2,100 people and a record fundraising evening for the chapter. The attendance at this banquet sets a new record for attendance at any CCA banquet across the nation. Things are bigger in Texas, including the love for our coastal resources! Over the months of May and June, CCA Texas will hold another 17 events, so be sure to watch for your local chapter's event if it hasn't happened yet.

May 17, 2014 is the date set for the 3rd Annual CCA Texas Concert for Conservation. This event has grown each year and this year will feature perhaps the best entertainment line up yet. The gates at Sam Houston Race Park in Houston will open up at 5:00 PM and Wade Bowen will kick the evening off. If you like some good southern rock, .38 Special will be on stage next and the headliner for the night will be "Bocephus" himself, Hank Williams, Jr.. The evening promises to be the best yet, so be sure and get your tickets now.

CCA Texas Partners with San Antonio Bay Foundation

CCA Texas recently partnered with the San Antonio Bay Foundation and provided $15,000 in funding for the treatment of invasive weed infestations in the Guadalupe River delta. Much of the areas bayous, which provide fresh water flows into the delta, are choked by these invasive species thus restricting water flows and the movement of both fresh and saltwater fish species in and out of nursery and freshwater habitats during periods of high salinity. Using water friendly herbicide, such as AquaNeat, has proven to be effective and this effort will help reinforce efforts that occurred in 2013 with appropriate follow up. CCA Texas looks forward to building a partnership with the San Antonio Bay Foundation and working together in the future for common conservation efforts.
