The Angelina Neches/Dam B Wildlife Management Area (WMA) is located in Jasper and Tyler counties and provides public hunting through the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) draw hunt system for alligator. The WMA is situated in the forks of the Angelina and Neches Rivers and is adjacent the B.A. Steinhagen Reservoir, which is 12,636 acres in size. The topography of Angelina Neches/Dam B is generally flat with many sloughs and ridges that hold both ducks and alligators.
Access to most of the WMA is by boat only. However, airboats are prohibited on the area. Public boat ramps and information stations are located at Bevilport, the Walnut Ridge and Cherokee Units of Martin Dies, Jr. SP, and the Magnolia Ridge Army Corps of Engineers Park. Hunters in search of alligator and waterfowl should plan on using one of these boat ramps. These ramps can also be quite busy depending on the time of the day.
Throughout the year and during TPWD draw hunts, primitive camping is allowed in designated camp sites on the WMA. A camping permit must be obtained from the Corps of Engineers office at the dam site. Camping facilities are also available on the Martin Dies, Jr. State Park. Call 936-569-8547 for more information about public alligator or duck hunting on Angelina Neches/Dam B.
