Welcome to Sunrise Lodge and Properties on Matagorda Bay. We offer unlimited opportunities in the outdoors, from bay fishing to waterfowl hunting or just enjoying a sunrise or sunset while casting a line off our private pier.
Matagorda is a peaceful place off the beaten path. Our bays are just a cast away and our sandy beaches are within minutes of our properties.
Allow us to tailor a plan to entertain your customers, use as a corporate incentive program, team-build or just get a bunch of buddies together and have a good time.
Get ready to enjoy good food, and a heck of a good time in a pleasant, laid-back atmosphere. Our best advertisement is you, so make time to leave the concrete jungle and sample some of our southern coastal charm.

Matagorda Sunrise Lodge:

Our property is situated on the Colorado River at Matagorda Texas, offering fishing night and day from our private pier. We host those who like to fish, hunt or just vacation.
Some like to show up and let us handle everything from fishing, hunting, lodging and meals. Some like to bring their boat and do their own thing. Either is fine with us – we just want you to leave with a smile on your face.
We offer coastal cuisine from a local chef if you choose. Etoufee, seafood gumbo, steak and shrimp, shrimp enchiladas and banana pudding are some of our customer favorites.
A typical 3 meal day includes supper the night before, hot breakfast and lunch on the boat.

Matagorda Bay Fishing,
What to Expect on a Trip:

We work East Matagorda and West Matagorda bays, the Matagorda and Port O'Connor jetties and the surf. Typically, boats leave our pier before sunrise and arrive back at the lodge around lunch.
We are a conservation-minded lodge and our boats love to practice catch and release. Matagorda Bay is a big trout fishery and we take pride in preserving our bays and doing what is right for the estuariy. Nevertheless, if anglers on our boat would like to take fresh fish home, we will happily clean and bag your catch.

The preferred methods of fishing are wading and/or drifting with artificial lures and/or live bait. Certain times of the year live bait is the best option for success, so we choose to maximize the potential to bend rods. Please note that live bait is an extra charge.
We like anglers to use their own rods and reels; however, when fishing out of our boats, we can supply tackle and gear. If wadefishing, we do not supply rods and reels unless advanced notice is given.

Duck Hunting:
We offer duck hunts on private, well-managed marshes and ponds. Pintails, wigeons, teal, gadwalls, shovelers and a few mallards frequent our ponds. We are in the Central Flyway and typically enjoy a 16-day teal season in September and a 74-day duck season that runs Nov-Jan.
We do not overhunt our properties, choosing to rotate ponds so our hunting remains steady from opening day to close. We also offer duck hunts on the bays, both morning and afternoon, for pintails, redheads, scaup and wigeons.
Groups of 4 shotgunners work best.

Hunters needs waders, camouflage jacket, hat, gun, shells and hunting license. We can help with outfitting with advanced notice, or just drop by Matagorda Outfitters in town for guns, shells and gear. If you give them Code:Team Sunrise at checkout, Matagorda Outfitters will discount your purchase for staying and playing with Sunrise Lodge.
