Fish after fish will be caught and released adding fun and good times for all kids.
All fishing equipment and bait will be provided from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Texas Junior Anglers is an outreach program designed to:
- Educate young Texans regarding aquatic sportsmanship
- Promote conservation of our environment and natural resources
- Encourage a lifetime enjoyment of the Texas outdoors
- Foster strong community relationships
Fishing is a lifetime sport that builds self-esteem and provides a positive outlet for our youth.
Involving children in a sport that provides equality for race, gender, age, and physical/mental abilities provides a means of relaxation and a time for family communication.
