Family Fish Camp at Lake Texana State Park

EDNA - Lake Texana State Park and Fishing’s Future, a non-profit organization dedicated to bring children and their parents together through the outdoor experience of fishing, is teaming up to host a Family Fish Camp at Lake Texana State Park at 9:30 a.m., Sunday, April 15.

Fishing’s Future combines the fishing experience with outdoor education at what are called “Family Fish Camps”. These camps include learning different fishing techniques, teaching the “Leave No Trace” philosophy and addressing water and outdoor safety practices. The overall goal is to reconnect kids to nature and to strengthen the family relationship outdoors.  This is achieved by including parents in “Family Fish Camp” events.

Shane Wilson, Fishing’s Future’s master angler, is excited about doing the family fish camp at Lake Texana State Park and hopes this will be the first of many Family Fish Camps to be held at the park. Lake Texana is one of the best little crappie lakes in the area and also has a large population of monster knuckle-busting catfish ready to do battle.

“Having a Family Fish Camp in this park is a very special event and many of the kids will catch fish,” Wilson says. “I have fished this lake several times and each time I have caught fish. I am eager to try my luck again. Lake Texana State Park is a great little park that I love to visit and hate to leave.”

To register for the event, visit or contact Lake Texana State Park Superintendent Kelley Morris at (361) 782-5718.The Family Fish Camp is free, but state park entrance fees do apply. There is no charge for children 12 years of age and younger.
