The Port Bay Club lies about four miles southwest of Rockport, over a half mile off FM 1069 down the hard surfaced road marked "Port Bay Club, Historical Marker". It is the oldest hunting and fishing club in Texas, started in 1909.
It fronts on the slender body of water from which the Club derives its name. |
Port Bay property is the narrow, southernmost "tail" of Copano Bay, one of the largest protected inland bays along the Texas Coast, and a legendary fishing and wildlife area. Just north and east of Copano is the famous Aransas National Wildlife Refuge.
The Club is prominently featured in the book Texas Tides by Tosh Brown, who writes of "tagging along on the bay with my father" starting around 1972.
