Bring the whole family out to Fort Boggy State Park for a day of fishing fun!

The Friends of Fort Boggy State Park invite you and your family out for a day of fishing fun! This event is for children 5-12 years old and their families to learn about fishing. Registered kids will be given their own Zebco rod & reel, to learn with and keep and will learn to cast with the help of TPWD Certified Volunteer Angler Education Instructors. They can then participate in the fishing tournament alongside others in their age group. Trophies will be awarded at the end of each tournament by age group (5/6, 7/8, 9/10 and 11/12).

Registration required, space is limited.

Morning and afternoon sessions are available:
