Nearly any small tributary or creek, even a drainage ditch that is overgrown should yield more then enough for your purpose. I'd suggest a long handled fine mesh fishing net, a cast net (if your a dexterous), or a seine net. Try and stick with waterways that appear overgrown with dense plant matter and they should be brimming with what you are seeking. As far as Tilapia go, I have only had success in the Buffalo Bayou drainage system, though others have had success in other areas. Just keep an eye out when you are driving and investigate areas near you.
