I am trying to get the USA Flood Hazard Areas to show only those in Texas. The attribute table does not have a state category where I could filter by state. 

I tried to do analysis > overlay layers> and picked the USA Flood Hazard Areas and a Texas geographical boundary. After it ran, there's no results in the attribute table for the new layer. 

Is there a better way to approach this?

Did you try the "clip" tool?

Are you using the imagery or the feature layer version?

One way you can solve this is by using blend modes in Map Viewer. Here is a sample I tossed together using the imagery version and I removed the not mapped values under layer styling:

I created this clipped area by have these three operational layers grouped in a group layer and in this order

Then on the TX_state layer I set the blend mode to destination Atop under the layer properties panel

and then you are set.

 

It will also work for the feature layer version. Here I applied a bloom and a drop shadow to the FL version to make it pop against the imagery layer.
