I will be looking for warm climates in the winter.
“The coldest day of the year (in Del Rio, Texas) is January 4, with an average low of 40°F and high of 61°F.” That sounds do-able.
And Texas has sweet fishing rules: “A fishing license and stamp endorsement are not required if fishing from the bank in a state park or in waters completely enclosed by a state park.”
Here are 2 nice sounding camping spots:
4 sites; each with a covered picnic table and a BBQ grill. The sites are suitable for tents or RVs. No drinking water or hookups available. Each site costs $4/night. ($2 with a Senior Pass)
6 sites; each with a covered picnic table and a BBQ grill. The sites area suitable for tents or RVs. No drinking water or hookups available. Each site costs $4/night. ($2 with a Senior Pass)
There are many advantages to this area, aside from fishing and weather. Del Rio has a UPS store, there is a library and grocery stores. I can stay for 14 nights in one spot, and 60 days total per year.
Sounds pretty good for winter, even though it costs $2/night. That is $60/month. Another budget adjustment time. Since I will be driving only 200 miles for these two months instead of the 1200 miles budgeted there is a big gasoline $ saving of over $250. Enough savings for some fishing equipment!
