Pocket Prairies, Catching Carp & Meet the Greeter Urban Pocket Prairies

Urban Pocket Prairies

Urbanization has reduced the once 600,000 acre Katy Prairie near Houston, Texas to just 200,000 acres affecting many species of wildlife. Now the Katy Prairie Conservancy has partnered with nearly a dozen schools to create pocket prairies. These small urban prairies are helping wildlife as well as children to become healthier, happier and smarter.

The International Pursuit

The once-maligned carp is emerging as a sought-after sport fish, and anglers are coming to Texas from around the world just to catch them. Tag along as we hit the Texas carp hotspots, Lady Bird Lake in Austin, and Lake Fork near Dallas. Yes, the same Lake Fork that’s known for monster bass is now famous for its monster carp as well.
