Are there any ponds or creeks close to Helotes where kids can use nets to catch water bugs or even better do bank fishing? Are there any shallow and clean creeks that young children can splash around in anywhere in San Antonio?

I'm not sure any of them would have water right now.

You are right. We are getting out of a severe drought. Remember that most of Texas is usually Semi-arid and not known for abundant rainfall and the glaciers of the Rocky Mountains are kind of far away and I believe don't feed most of the rivers here .
That said, there is usually water in the rivers such as San Antonio River. I would head down to the Mission Road area and see if you can do those things in the park next to the river.

Off the Babcock entrance to the Leon Creek greenway there is a pond where folks bank fish. Someone told me that it is stocked but I don't know if that is true.

I would not splash in it and there are signs saying stay out.

There is a fishing pond at Woodlawn Lake Park. There are also fishing ponds and fresh water wading pools at Landa Park in New Braunfels.

Unless it's out in the country somewhere there's no way I'd eat the fish, catch and release only!
