Dawson runs an absolutely awesome 5 star operation. Putting us on big alligator gar at every turn. We will be repeat clients as soon as we can. What a day! What a trip! You haven’t caught big gar until you’ve fished with Dawson

Recommended Packing

Anglers should wear loose-fitting, breathable clothing that can get slimed and dirty, most likely a combination of both. Temperatures will range from 60's at first light to low 100's in mid afternoon. It is not a bad idea to pack a sweatshirt that can be left in the vehicle if not needed( spring and fall only) Anglers should always pack a lite rain suit whether or not rain is expected. River access points consist of nothing besides an area to park and a dilapidated boat ramp. There are no restrooms etc. near the river or launch site. Expect to get dirty on your trip both from holding fish and because it is impossible to avoid it in the river bottoms.

Required Items

A valid fishing license.

Things to Keep in Mind
