Rollover Fish Pass

More Pictures of Rollover Fish Pass

Located in Gilchrist, 20 miles east on Hwy 87 from the Ferry landing and 7 miles west from the intersection of Hwy 87 and 124 at High Island at the beach, this fish cut was dug in the fifties to connect the Gulf of Mexico with Galveston Bay. It was financed by a conservation organization in Beaumont to give the migrating fish a means of getting from the Gulf to the Bay to spawn. In the spring and fall it is a great place to catch your limit on an incoming tide. Live bait is available, just bring your lawn chairs and ENJOY !!

Surf Fishing

Fishing in the surf is a relaxing, economical and sometimes rewarding experience. Take your rod and reel, some bait (live or dead) or a mirror lure, wade out to the waist deep water on the second sand bar and toss your line out and see what happens. Could be great. Surf fishing is especially good in the summer when the green water comes all the way to the beach. The speckeled trout are hungry and ready to take a lure or live shrimp.

North Jetty

Renowned fishing spot for miles around. You can walk out on the rocks, (the concrete only runs for about a block), for almost a mile. Dedicated fisherpeople spend hours on the slippery rocks in pursuit of the big one! Friendly atmosphere, you can take the kids, cause the crabbing is also very good, and their pursuit brings lots of memories of the little ones trying to keep the crabs on the line! Road to the North Jetty is about two miles east of the Ferry landing.
