Can one wade in anywhere near Houston to drop some traps? I am asking just because I am experimenting with wading and thought that may be a good idea but wondered if anyone else has done it with any success.

You need a fishing license.

https://tpwd.texas.gov/regulations/outdoor-annual/fishing/general-rules-regulations/general-fishing-regulations

Fishing License Requirements
Any person who takes or attempts to take fish, mussels, clams, crayfish or other aquatic life in the public waters of Texas must have a current Texas fishing license with the appropriate endorsement. A saltwater endorsement is required to fish in coastal waters; a freshwater endorsement is required for inland waters.

The regulations do not specifically mention a crawfish trap.  They do mention a minnow trap:

Minnow Trap
May be used to take NONGAME fish only.
Trap may not exceed 24 inches in length. The throat may not exceed 1 inch by 3 inches.
Gear tag valid for only 10 days must be visibly attached.

That should cover a crawfish trap. 

Of course, the state does not know how to spell crawfish!
