Since 2002, thousands of anglers have contributed more than $675,420 to improve fishing in Texas by purchasing Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s large-mouth bass conservation license plate (CLP).

Every year, sales of the large-mouth bass CLPs generate about $40,000 to benefit projects at dozens of public reservoirs and small fishing lakes across the state.
Projects funded by the CLP program have included deployment of GPS-marked artificial fish attractors and installation of underwater green-light units at fishing piers and aeration systems to improve water quality in small fishing ponds. The funds have also gone to the establishment of native aquatic vegetation on shorelines and procurement of materials to establish submerged brush piles at future planned reservoirs.
