Lake Corpus Christi State Park to Host Kid Fish Event

MATHIS – On Saturday, the park rangers at Lake Corpus Christi State Park are hosting a Kid Fish event as an opportunity for new anglers to learn how to fish.

The annual kid fish program will run from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Jan. 27, for children ages 5 to 12. The program includes six hourly fishing sessions throughout the event., where park rangers and volunteers will teach children proper fishing techniques and how to clean and bag their catch.

The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s Inland Fisheries Division will stock rainbow trout for the fishing event and the first 500 children will be given a free fishing rod and reel to use and keep after the event, thanks to the Ed Rachal Foundation and other area donors.

Children can also participate in several other games and activities during the program. Food and drinks will be provided for participants.

Park entry fees will be waived for all program participants. No pre-registration is required, though registration the day of the event begins at 8 a.m. Children must be present to register.

After the event, fishing will be open to the public. No fishing license is required if fishing within the state park.

For more information, visit the TPWD website or call the park at 361-547-2635.
