MATHIS – Saturday, Jan. 29, park rangers at Lake Corpus Christi State Park are hosting their Kid Fish 2022 event as an opportunity for young anglers to learn how to fish and to enjoy the wonders of outdoor recreation.
From 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., the park will hold its annual Kid Fish event for children ages 5 to 12. The event includes five hourly fishing sessions where children learn proper fishing techniques and more from park rangers and volunteers.
The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) Inland Fisheries Division will stock rainbow trout for the event. Thanks to a grant from the Ed Rachal Foundation, participants get to keep their fishing rods. Educational booths will be set up for visitors to enjoy as well.
Program participants and two accompanying adults receive free entry for the event. Each session size is limited to 50 participants. Registration begins the day of the event at 7:30 a.m. at the park front office. Children must be present to register. Social distancing and masks are encouraged.
After the event, fishing will be open to the public. Fishing licenses are not required if fishing from the bank or piers in the state park.
