Join us this Fourth of July weekend for a fun learn-to-fish event at Lockhart State Park, and take home a FREE fishing pole (while supplies last)!

Learn the basics of fishing through 4 hands-on stations, and take away a FREE fishing pole and fishing fun pack (while supplies last)! This visitor caught her first fish a one of our events last year!Stations include how to assemble your new fishing pole (basic tackle), casting, fishing safety, and fish ecology. After the stations, why not try fishing in the park? We’ll even supply the bait! No fishing license required. Drop in any time between 1-3pm. All ages and abilities are welcome!

Prepare: Dress for the weather, wear closed-toed shoes, and bring lots of water. You may also bring your own equipment and bait, if you prefer.
